    Default Temp Trailer Lights

    Ever have to borrow a trailer and not have the wiring functional or there at all? Tired of burning out your bulbs by forgetting to disconnecting the harness before backing into the water? WELL check this out. I might be the only one that has this problem but here is my cheap fix...



    I just use a rachet strap to keep in place.

    Hope you like.

    I have used magnetic base tow truck drag lights for years. I match them to my trucks and both trucks have a set so I never need to mess with trailer wiring on my 6 trailers.

    I built a set a few years ago that I use in an emergency. I utilized some 25lb fishing magnets (those that can lift 25lbs and are utilized to recover lost gear from the side of the boat). I bolted a piece of angle iron to the top edge, then mounted the standard lights and wiring for a 25' run. Some magnets from ol' hard drives keep the wire tight to the car (or trailer) and prevent dragging.

    I also utilized some 40mil plastic to prevent the magnets from scratching the car finish if I'm using a towbar.

    Good idea though, decent design too.
