License plate light

We bought a new license plate light fixture to replace our 1985 original which was corroded. There is one wire coming out of the trailer to connect to the new fixture and it is extremely short, with no slack in it to pull it out further. Any suggestions on how to wire the new light? Is there any danger in leaving that wire unattached?

I suggest splicing a short extension wire to it with a crimp connector.
