Did you put a center brake light on your trailer??

if so is it just one or a left and a right so they can see you are turning too??

Ours is a brake strip with 3 small lights and is placed center back trailer frame area. David wired it so the most left light blinks for left turns & most right blinks for right turn. I forget if all three come on when braking or only the center one. :thinking:
The main reason we did it is that our teardrop lights are replicas of old Ford lights and don't show up as well as more modern ones do.

I don't have a third brakelight. I just have a pair of 4" round lights. They use to be a regular bulb type but last summer I swaped them out for a pair of LEDs. I do feel better with the brighter lights. I was thinking of adding a second pair and have them off except for brake and turns (no running light). Then I would have 4 lights come on.

I am planning to put a third brake light on my new build. That is what people are used to seeing on cars, so I figure it would be a good idea. I'll probably use an LED strip to keep it small.

This is what i put on mine last week.
With running lights on.
With brake lights on,they also have turn signal mode.
It wasn't quite dark yet they are very bright at night.

I don't have a third brake light (though I really like the thought of one!) but I do have 5 double bulb clearance lights on the back.
