Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I'm sore someone has done the legwork on this. I have an EZ Loader and am replacing the harness. Where is the best harness/lighting system? Thanks.

I have rewired a few trailers.It is not very hard to do at all.

The wiring harness has a real weak spot in that they use a flat push type connector that is tough to get to.It often corrodes after 4-5 seasons.

I run new wires up both sides and only splice them near the tongue.It costs a few dollars extra but avoids most corrosion troubles.

Dave's trailer sells trailer wire (color coded) by the spool.Makes the job very easy.Heat shrink the connections at the lights- leave 12'' extra and you are good to go :thumbup:.

You can use the old wires to pull the new ones.

Thanks guys, Skip, I think I'll use your suggestion and start from scratch. I'll solder all connections as they oxidize too quickly resulting in dim lights.

I solder, grease, (silicone, if in a wet location) and shrink wrap. A little excessive but I've pulled apart connections clsoe to 10 years later that got submersed several times for many years w/o any tlc and they were so clean when stripped they could have been re-solder-ed. I usually end up making replacements due to broken lines more than corroded connections.
