LED's for the trailer?

Anyone use LED lights on the trailer, S/T/T, back up, or running lights? If so where to get them and what can I expect to pay. Obviously they have to be water proof.

I put LED stop/turn/brake lights on my trailer because I had gone through 3 sets of bulbs lights last year. They kept getting water in them even though they were supposed to be sealed units. No problems this year....knock wood. I'll see if I can remember where I got them on-line when I get some more time Here's one place that sells them.

I have LED's for all lights on my trailer. They work great. I got mine at Academy and Wally world.

I bought two oval stop and turn led lights last week at walmart. They were about $25 each. I really like them - they are bright and completely sealed. They should last a while

You bought LED lamps at Walmart for $25.00 each??? I was expecting to hear about $60.00 each. I doubt they will be that cheap here if they even have them.

These are ok, but I was hoping to find some with alot more leds per unit. Looks like there are some with about 20 to 30 leds. I used to have some on my old car trailer that had about 80 or more in each S/T/T, now that is what I would like but need the oval tylenol shaped units and 100% waterproof, and I know my otherones were not. Let me know what you find and if you have a picture of your so I can see how many leds are in each.

I know they dont have a ton of leds in them but they are very bright and reliable. I dont realy know why you would nee 80 per light. That is a lot of leds

The difference is unbelievable when braking. They look normal (brightness) when running lights are on, but when you touch the brakes, the people behind "KNOW" you stopping, not necessarily blinding kind of bright, but there is a difference. I guess it is one of those things were you know what you want, and hope there is someone making it exactly that, otherwise everytime I look at them I will think, "Man I wish I would have bought the ones I wanted". I guess I am funny like that. It is sort of one of the reasons I bought a Mastercraft and not one of the others. Sort of......
All Leds I have seen are an outstanding difference over conventional incandescents in all aspects.

got the ones for my quad trailer (yes they are water proof) at a trucker supply store. think they were about $30-40 each (bought lots of stuff) and they have about 60 or so lights. So, that might be another place to check out!
