Hartb; Would you mind sharing the information, as to where you purchased your wireless tail lights? I am interested in changing my setup, to wireless.

You can get them here: http://www.itowlights.com/index.html

Not sure if there are other (cheaper) sources.

Take care,
Stu

Thanks for all your info I've elected to order from Itow. Yes there are cheaper versions out there but when I did the product reviews I wasn't all that impressed. When your in the middle of nowhere you want them to work.

I'm interested also. Did you review these lights also in your research? What advantages did the itow seem to have over these?

I looked at these briefly but the light bar system doesn't work for the load I'm towing. I need two separate lights that can be placed in various locations.

Did you miss these models ? They are separate left and right units. They were at the bottom of the page.

Another one for tractor supply. I got about 20 hours towing on mine before recharging. That is daytime driving.

PasDad1 I guess about 35 hours of daytime driving. They recommend lithium-ion batteries, but I use the alkaline batteries as my wife always has them in stock. They are LEDs. You just have to remember to turn them off when you are not using them.
