Three-Year Update on my Trailer-Rewiring Job
Hi again. It's been three years since I decided to rewire my trailer, and the third annual inspection since I did the job is due this afternoon. I decided to use the opportunity to update y'all on how my DIY rewiring project has held up.
The short store is that the expandable braided sleeving and the heat-shrink connectors have done their jobs. I've done nothing to the wiring in three years other than inspect it, and occasionally clean the connectors with electrical contact cleaner.
That's it. The LED trailer lights themselves have held up just fine and work as well today as the day I bought them.
That alone is enough reason to rewire your trailer if you still have incandescent lights. I remember back before I swapped them out for the LED lights, I never was able to just take the trailer in for inspection. There was always at least one bulb burnt out.
High-quality LED lights, on the other hand, last pretty much forever. They're also brighter, which makes for better safety.
Here's a short video of me inspecting the lights before I take the trailer in, just to make sure they all worked. They did, as you can see for yourself.
I hope that your trailer-rewiring project is as successful as mine was, and I hope that you enjoy my site. Thanks for stopping by.
