    Hoping someone could answer this for me....I have a 14' enclosed trailer and I would love to install at least a 12" led light bar on the back. I already have a small light with switch and I am assuming it's just a 12 volt connection. Can I just remove the old incandescent light and install the LED light bar? Can I just tap into the existing wires and call it a day or do I need to install some transformer or regulator? Thanks to anyone that can answer this for me!

    You can probably tap into the existing wiring but you might want to add an inline fuse. I don't know know if a relay is necessary. My recommendation, spend the money on the Switch Pro's Plug and play painless wiring system. It works with Bluetooth interface through your mobile device so you can turn the light(s) on/off from inside your vehicle. Also useful when backing up at night
