Optronics Boat and Trailer Over 80'' Tail Light
These are decent lights and were a great value. My boat trailer sees salt water, and this is the third set of lights that have been on my trailer. So far they show the most promise - definitely more promise than the expensive sealed LED lights that leaked and died after just one season.
The "bell" inside these lights that cover the lights and sockets may actually keep the water out of the sockets. I also pulled the lenses and used silicone sealant around them and on the wires where they exit the housing just to be sure.
These are good bright lighs, and there are a couple of mounting bolt positions making them easy to install. I am very pleased with them, and will definitely order them again when I need my next set of lights.

Not for Tracker Marine Trailers
The tail light does not line up with the pre drilled holes on tracker marine trailers. I had to drill holes for this unit to fit. Other than that it works. Typical problem with buying tracker marine products.

OK after fix.
Since I would expose this trailer light to saltwater, I tested it overnight in a bucket of water. It leaked. It was a little leak, but enough to have resulted in corrosion of the metal terminals and contacts in a short time. I lifted each bubble and put a bead of silicon sealer before re-attaching each bubble to ensure a 100% water seal.

Cheap and works
Was cheap, looked just like the old version, slightly different but was able to take cover off the one and use on the old fixture. So, I didn't have to completely remove the old one and the wiring just to replace the broken cover. Oh, Bass Pro Shops shippped it quick too. I think it arrived in 2 days. Happy Customer!
