TS Docking Lights

Greetings fellow TS owners,

I recently replaced my docking lights with LED assemblies. As a result, I have a few of the original lights with the plastic backing covers and one spare glass lens with the stainless steel trim ring I no longer need. Exact replacements seem difficult to find so I thought I'd offer them up (no charge) to anyone who may need them.

They have the usual light rust on the inside, but the glass and trim rings are in good shape and they work, so if you need any pls send me a PM with a shipping address. I did remove the cable and connector to use on my new lights, but your original ones can be used with these. It's on a first come first serve basis so if interested pls let me know ASAP.

Lou

TS Docking Lights

Lou,

Think you will enjoy the LED lights. I have had several comments about mine. Don't know if they are any brighter but the "cool factor" really goes up!
Have a good one!

Great Sailor, don't need, but great offer.
I am interested in what you found to replace, would greatly appreciate your info.
I have converted every light (except headlights) inside, outside, basement, etc. with LED's, but have not gotten to the Dock lights.
You might want to add this info to the Quick Tips & Mods Sticky for others.
Thanks for any info
Rob

To all: The lights are all spoken for and I'm glad you guys could use them.

Robert: I found them to be brighter, but more importantly they peg the cool factor meter off scale high.

Rob: I used these on the back:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Chrome-Flange-Surface-Mount-10-LED-6-Backup-Lights-/271260824693?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories &hash=item3f2867b475&vxp=mtr

They are flush mounted and large enough to cover the existing holes. I was going to use them on the sides also, but they are too wide for the space between the front basement compartment door and the wheel well.


Since I wanted the ones on the sides to match I keep searching until I found these:

http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/reverse-lamps/rtss-whb20-series-rectangular-reverse-led-truck-lamp-w-ss-mounting-flange/1283/2960/

with this plug:

http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/plugs-connectors-sockets/right-angle-3-pin-plug/569/1778/



These are not flush mounted and fit between the door and wheel well, but the existing holes were too small. I had to enlarge the opening about 1/4" all around. I started cutting the fiberglass with a small pneumatic jig saw, but that took forever, so I ended up using a pneumatic grinding wheel. I have a small grinder that was pretty easy to control and made fast work of the cutting.

In both cases I reused the TS connectors off the old lights and soldered the connector wires to the new light wires. I used all stainless steel hardware for mounting and silicon on all the connections. They are designed as truck/trailer backup lights so hopefully they will hold up.
