When you’re hauling your performance boat to the launching ramp or back home after a day of fun on the water, you want to ensure you get there and back safely. Having properly operating lights is one key safety factor.
Most drivers behind you won’t be able to see around your trailer, so you want to make sure you have functioning brake lights on it. In addition, you should have functional taillights and side marker lights on your trailer for safe operation in low-light, foggy and other challenging road conditions.
Besides making your trip safer, having properly operating trailer lights can help you avoid getting pulled over by your friendly state trooper or other police officer. At the least, that will cost you time. It could also cost you a hefty ticket.
Besides keeping the good guys from pulling you over, you should also keep the bad guys in mind. Boat hitches can be a popular target for thieves, especially when you leave your vehicle unattended for long periods while you are out having fun on the water. To avoid disappointment when you return to your truck, items like our trailer hitch locks can prevent drawbar or accessory thefts.
Whether you need new trailer wires or replacements, Bakes Marine carries a wide assortment of boat trailer wiring. You’ll find a variety of wiring harnesses here that are easy to hook up to your trailer.
