I think I either need to purchase and install the chrome trim rings or return the marker lights I bought for some that have a recess in the back for mounting the wire. What do you think?
I have installed that light on Airstream units before. Once you take the old light off you will see one wire. The one wire on your light in the picture will attach to the one wire on the trailer. Use a small butt conector and push it inside the trailer. You may have to carve some of the sealer out of the way as the butt conector has to be inside the trailer. Do not lose the wire inside the trailer!!!!!!!!You will have to use a sealer to seal the wire hole and the mounting rivets. I would use spread rivets. It will ground when you attach it. You will want to make sure the wire takes up as little space behind the light as you can.
It can be done to where it is as close as a "hollow back light" can be done. Most people I have talked to about this light do not want to mess with the sealer inside the traler. I has to be sealed whatever light you use. It has to be sealed at the wire, the rivets, and around the whole light base.
