I reworked the wires on my trailer a few years ago and they are still doing good. I ran contentious wires with no splices all the way to the lights. Soldered all connections and used heat shrink tubing.
I think that was 5-6 years ago. Get the good LED lights and put them up in the air on PVC pipe like this.

that has to be a record for trailer lights.. I hate them. Now, when soemthing goes wrong, I just go out and buy new set...

I have a utility trailer and the Waverunner trailer that needs lights. :censored:

I think I rewire my tandem axle work trailer about every other year but it gets used/abused daily. That diagram kind of works for it because I use a 7 prong RV plug on it...it helps after dark to have back up lights on it and it has brakes too.

Once on an aluminum boat I decided it would save me a lot of money if I wired it with the ground going only to the metal hull - and only one wire going to everything. I figured I would save 1/2 the wire! Then on the water one day I realized what a mistake. a little sea water in the boat & Everything I touched shocked me. Live & learn

BTW Ric - the best I could do on the hog pipe was about $41.00 - would be tough to market @ 3X
