    Hi There Everybody

    I have a lighting query, I have just bought a Easylifter which has a light board like the one below which has seen better days.

    I could just buy another like the one I already have but on searching for trailer light boards I found two different ones which I thought were better.

    My connections on my Motor home is a 7pin socket which as you can see from the link above at the moment feeds rear side lights, Brake lights and indicators.

    The one from Machine Mart "link below" has the addition of red triangles, which if I bought that one there would be no electrical problems.

    But the one I realy would like is this one "link below" which has a rear fog light on it which has a 7pin socket on it..

    My question is if I bought the one with the rear fog light on it would I have to mess around with the electrics on my Motor home or will they already be wired up as standard for a rear fog light?

    Also what are the implications and regulations of travelling abroad with light boards?

    Many Thanks Tony

    Back in Sarfend for a while, then back to RSA.
    Triangles only for trailers.

    Hi There but as this is an Easylifter won't it be classed as part of the Motorhome?

    Just take the triangles off...as said, triangles for trailers only.
    As for the fog lights, it depends if the fitter connected the wiring to the socket for them/it.
