Car dolly

If using a car dolly does the car's brake lights also have to go on when the dolly's lights go on? Or just brake lights on dolly?

It is my understanding that the rule varies by state. Georgia requires tail lights not to exceed 4 feet from the end of the tow, thus it is necessary to have lights mounted to on the tow.

Follow the laws of the state you're tagged in.
For instance, in Oklahoma, we don't have to tag boat trailers, just the boat itself. We also aren't required to carry our registration papers in private/non-commercial vehicles.
We are required to tag some trailers, but not all of them.

Indiana law reads the same. Rather than get involved with the hassle of running wiring, or tapping into the cars wiring harness, consider one of the wireless units:http://www.amazon.com/Bully-NV-5164-...N%3DB00G9SB45M
