wireless trailer lights, anyone?

Trailer wiring in the winter, needs to be tied up real well or snow pulls it off, basically I need to rewire my trailer and do a real job of securing the wire.

This looks like an option: http://www.pickupspecialties.com/Wirele ... lights.htm

What do you think?

My buddy has them on his boat trailer now for 2 years.changes the bateries every spring. You can change batteries once a year or tear apart the light every time you use it to fix the ground. :notsure:

trailer wiring in blackiron pipe as a conduit tucked and mounted tight will be better than the bounce-loosened battery type for the roads in Ak maybe?

Yeah, +1 on the conduit.

I can just imagine a trucker keying up his mic ... and causing your lights to do all kinds of weird *censored* ... all while a statie is behind you. Besides, I couldn't see that lasting more than 15 minutes in the corrosive road salt bath this state would give it. No thanks!
