    Trailer work light - cabin switch

    Hi all,

    I'm going to put some basic work lights on my little trailer. Thing is, I'd like to have the on/off switch located in the cabin. I have a 7 pin round (large) trailer connector plug which leaves 1 unused wire - blue (electric brakes according to Narva website). My trailer does not have elec brakes and i don't plan on getting them for the foreseeable future.

    However, i still see it as a potential hazard for me or future owners to have a switch in their elec brake system. Do i have any other options here except run a dedicated wire/connector, or a switch on the trailer itself?

    I've found lights useful not just for working but more often to see the load whilst driving at night - just to check everything's ok without stopping.

    It shouldn't be a problem using the blue wire. It just means if you forget and connect the trailer up to a vehicle that has a brake controller, it will just send voltage to the trailer under braking.

      What is the tow vehicle? I put a very slimline lightbar on the top rear of my Adventra for this purpose.

          Use the black wire, it's for the reverse lights on the trailer.

            Or piggy back off parking lights but have a rf/remote or Bluetooth relay . That way it works if you ever have it in another car and you don't stray from Universal standards on your car. Also less wiring overall.
