    Just like a trailer, a vehicle that is being flat-towed behind another vehicle (also called dinghy towing when the towing vehicle is an RV) must have functioning lights that illuminate in accordance with the towing vehicle’s running lights, turn signals, and brake lights. Besides being the law, it’s just common sense to have functioning lights at the rear of a flat-towed vehicle. There are several ways to accomplish this but by far the easiest and least invasive way is with a set of universal tow lights that can quickly be installed for towing and stowed away when the vehicle is driven.

    Alternative options for towed vehicle lighting include diode kits, bulb and socket kits, and custom plug-in wiring harnesses, however each has limitations. Installing a diode kit requires splicing into the towed vehicle’s wiring harness. You can add a bulb and socket kit without disturbing the vehicle’s wiring but the tail light housings must have room for the additional lights and you must drill holes in the housings for installation. You can also avoid cutting wires with a custom wiring harness, but if you replace the towed vehicle with a different car, you’ll have to get another harness.

    Universal tow lights are the way to go if you don’t want the hassle of drilling holes or splicing into the towed vehicle’s electrical system, if you frequently replace the vehicle you tow, or if you only flat tow occasionally. We offer both wireless and wired systems, and both use one or two piece tail light housings with strong magnetic bases that will stay firmly attached to the trunk lid, roof, fenders or other metal body parts. Most lights have pads on the tail light bases to prevent scratching the paint. Wireless kits are the ultimate in towing convenience. Just plug the wireless transmitter into your truck or RV trailer connector. Transmitters have about a 1000 ft. range and they’re available to fit the number of pins and shape of all popular trailer connector sockets.

    The way that the lights in the wireless light fixture(s) are powered will vary according to brand and model. Some lights are powered through a cord that plugs into the towed vehicle’s 12V accessory port, while others contain a rechargeable battery that is charged from a 12V source. Most wireless light kits use highly efficient and bright LED bulbs, so you can count on long battery life. On wired kits, the self-contained wiring routes under the towed vehicle and connects to the towing vehicle’s trailer connector, with no cutting or splicing required. The lights in both wired and wireless systems are thoroughly sealed and impervious to damage from moisture and vibration.

    Universal tow lights work on any car, truck, or SUV, making them the smart choice if you flat-tow different vehicles. The kit can be quickly installed for towing, and just as quickly removed when you reach your destination and want to drive the towed vehicle. A tow light kit can also be temporarily installed on a trailer with non-functioning lights to make it safe and legal for the road. Some tow light kits come with a handy and durable storage case in which to stow the light kit when it’s not in use.
