Trailer wiring and lights are exposed to rain, show, salt, road dirt and grime. The wires are exposed and subject to chaffing and damage. The connectors (usually brass) and ground connections are particularly prone to corrosion.
Trailer lights must be tested often for everyone's safety in traffic and to avoid legal and regulatory citations and fines. Testing trailer lights takes time and time costs money. Testing trailer lights normally requires a towing vehicle connected to the trailer then walking back and forth from the vehicle to the back of the trailer to verify that all the trailer lights function properly - left signal, right signal, brake lights, tail and clearance lights. A second person could be in the vehicle to operate the lights. But that is double time consuming and very expensive for a business with a fleet of trailers.
Because of the hassle, time and expense, most people don’t test their trailer lights in advance. Instead, they wait until they are hooked up and ready to go, do a quick walk around to check the trailer lights and realize they have a problem. But everyone is ready and anxious to go, so off they go traveling illegally and not safely. This could result in traffic citations and possibly a much more expensive traffic accident.
Light Check is a self-contained, portable device that connects to the wiring connector of a trailer. It includes a 12-volt internal rechargeable battery, electronic diagnostics for light circuit analysis, ground wire and battery charger.
Simply connect Light Check to your trailer wiring, turn on the power and press the Select button for Cycle. Light Check will continue cycling through each of the trailer light circuits in 5 second intervals allowing one person to easily check the signal lights, brake lights, tail and clearance lights without a towing vehicle or second person to assist.
Use the Select button to operate any individual circuit continuously for troubleshooting or repair.
Internal electronic diagnostics tests for over currents (short circuits) and low currents (open circuits). If a problem is detected, LED fault lights indicate the type and source of the fault.
Save time and money, reduce fines and penalties by testing trailer lights with Light Check.

Increase safety for your family, employees or customers with properly operating trailer lights.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration rules impose more inspections, violations and fines. A non-functioning trailer light could be enough to get you pulled over for time consuming and costly road-side inspection.
