I think I am going to stick with the bilge pump switch that doesn't have any moving parts.
I found some submersible lights which are kinda pricey but they are rated as ip68 (the IP68 rating must always be better than the IP67 rating, that means that the instrument may be submersed for at least one meter ~3')
I might just order one set of red, one of blue and one white and see what they look like in the water on the trailer.
I am pretty sure that I will use white on the pontoon trailer, but the boat trailer is red and I may go with either the red or the blue?????

Those lights are waterproof, but will not last. The silicone encapsulation is not very robust. Also, you would have to attach a retainer every foot or so as the adhesive on the back will not last more then a few weeks in that application.

You are supposed to post only GOOD posts!!! Not kill my hopes and dreams! (kinda crappy dreams, huh?)
I was going to use a different 3M tape that I have from some R&D work I did a few years back that I know will work as it passed the 500 hour salt spray test among other tests
Any suggestions on appropriate LED strips? I would have thought a meter IP68 strip would work.Sent by the random thoughts from the voices in my head...

This kit is going to be a job to do as it will require drilling a hole for each LED, but they are solid lights.

...But, did you look at the Boatmate Trailer Kit? They use a flush-mount LED pod. They only offer white, but I have found a source for the same lights in other colors.

I have runway LEDS on my trailer, and to this day i have not got them to work properly.
I had a thread a while back on this due to voltage issue with my trailer, Nothing has ever came of it from the dealer. I think i might look into the Boat Mate kit or something..
If you get something that works id be interested.
