This is the second unit purchased from WM, the first I one blew up when turning a sharp corner. While waiting for replacement, took boat to the lake 3 times, light still worked without red lens, so I used only in daylight.Good product, and fit my trailer exactly.

These lights worked for one month and then one of them filled up with water and that was it. The other side still looked good, so I bought another kit so I didnt have to rewire the whole trailer again. Got the 3 year extended warranty this time so now, no matter what, they will last 3 years as far as water damage goes. Im taking the kit back with the bad light in it now to get a refund. Not returning the extended warranty ones though..lol The guys said these lights usually work great, I just got a bad one.

I would reccomend the LED oval lights that have a rubber gromet to hold them in, but like most trailers you want to replace them with the same type/style of lights. I have the LED ovals on another boat and haven't had a problem for a long time now. Be sure to use liquid electrical tape on all your connections. Its well worth it and will save you from re-wireing the connections sooner than later.

        • look nice

        Cons

        • Not rugged enough
        • Not worth the money
        • Rust, corrosion

        Best Uses

          Comments about Waterproof Low-Profile Thermoguarded Trailer Lights:

          Bought a brand new load master trailer with these on in march, I noticed last week that one was out. When i removed the lens, i noticed the waterproof dome was 3/4 full of water. The light socket is totally corroded. I checked the other one and it also had water in it, about a 1/4 full. Spend a few more bucks and get better ones if you plan on using on a boat trailer.

              The salesman insisted it was the only light that would fit. I told him it was not the correct size and he assured me it would fit. It didn't. Big surprise there.
