Trailer Lights

One of the most important parts of towing is visibility and your trailer lights are some of your most important safety accessories. Keeping the lights on your trailer in working order is very important to your safety while towing and to the safety of other drivers around you. It means making sure other drivers can see you and know when you are braking, turning or changing lanes.

In most states, all trailers are required by law to have brake lights, tail lights, turn signals and reflectors. Depending on the dimensions of the trailer, you may even need additional lights and reflectors. In Virginia, it is also required that a white light be mounted to illuminate the rear license plate. It must also be visible from a distance of 50 feet to the rear of the trailer.

Always perform a light safety check before taking a trailer out on the road. There are many common issues that can cause trailer lights to not function properly. Faulty wiring harnesses, worn or frayed wire connections or burned out bulbs are just a few things that could cause trouble if not checked prior to towing. Luckily, most of them are simple fixes and Southside Hitch can help.
