We're working our way through a remodel / refurbishment of our 1968 Sovereign
, and I've come to the topic I know the least about - electrical - particular 12 volt
wiring. People keep telling me it's simple - I have a very steep learning curve with this 12 volt
I am looking at replacing the rear license plate light with an LED bulb as I need to replace the entire light assembly anyway. So, I bought a replacement light assembly from Vintage Trailer Supply. On some blog, a person said he replaced that light in that unit with the LED unit in the attached picture. So, I bought one, primarily because it was a waterproof LED light. Can't get ahold of that person to ask any additional questions though!
My million dollar question - the light replacement I received from VTS has one black wire coming out the back - as the original did. The LED light bar replacment has a red and a black wire! My confusion - what do I do with the red wire - or is this LED light not a suitable replacement for the bulb that is there?
As a second question, can anyone give me any guidance as to where I can buy just the black gasket that goes on the back of this light assembly? I am hoping to repurpose the original license plate light holder that was there - but - that rubber gasket is completely shot! Would love to find a replacement for it!
Thank you for any help you can give!
