Side Marker/Flashers

Mine flash because I changed the side markers to do so. I want the people chasing me to know when I am going to turn and to stay out of my way.

I'd like that too.

Can you give more details on how you set that up? Thanks in advance,



Brad

I replaced the side marker lights with lights that had dual function LED bulbs in them and taped into the wiring harness to make the turn signal part of the bulb function as well as the clearance light. I also replaced the stock taillights with LED taillights. LED's are so much brighter and less likely to fail than the older incandescent bulbs. My trailer is a 2015 3825 RL and was built with round taillights so retrofitting them was not a problem.
These lights are available from any truck/trailer supply store. Perhaps I should say 18 wheeler supply store. I have even seen them for sale in truck stops but you can pay way less for them in other places.

If you're fairly handy this is not a major refit.

Thanks, I appreciate your thoughts!


My biggest concern is how to get new wires up to the new marker lights. Was there any trick to fishing the new wires, or was it pretty easy?


Thanks again,
Brad

Thumbs down

Picked up the 2021 Montana 3762 BP, no lights flashing when turn signals are being used?
