Contents of the Proplite™ shipping carton:

  1. One (1) PropLite™ Fixture with attached cable.
  2. One (1) PropLite™ Trailer Cable Harness.
  3. One (1) PropLite™ Mounting Bungee.
  4. One (1) PropLite™ Installation Instruction Sheet.
  5. Two (2) Trailer Cable Socket mounting screws.

Installation of the PropLite™ on your boat and trailer should take 20 minutes or less. Follow the ten easy steps below for the complete process.

Step 1

Mount the PropLite Fixture on the propeller of your boat using the bungee supplied. If the bungee is loose, tie a knot in the middle of the bungee. If it is still to loose, tie another.

Step 2
Route the PropLiteFixture Cable in a simple and direct way, to a point on the trailer frame that you can easily reach for connection. The best route provides easy access but keeps the fixture cable contained to prevent dragging or catching during towing.
Step 3

Check to make sure the Trailer Cable Harness wires will reach to an appropriate location for tapping into the existing trailer wiring harness.

 
Step 4

Mount the Trailer Cable Harness Socket with the screws provided at the frame location chosen in step two. It is best to mount the plug in a manner that will allow it to self-drain (pointing slightly downward). Be sure to check the plugging and unplugging space required before mounting. Also, be sure that when the Fixture Cable is plugged in that it does not hang down where it might be hit by objects passing under the trailer during towing.

Step 5

Connect the white wire on the Trailer Cable Harness to ground. This may be a white wire on the existing trailer wiring harness or you may connect directly to a clean spot on the frame. Use the supplied Wire Tap Connector to make connection to the existing wiring harness.

Step 6

Connect the brown wire on the Trailer Cable Harness to the tail-light/side-marker-light wire on the existing trailer wiring harness. This wire should be brown in color on most newer trailer harnesses. Use the supplied Wire Tap Connector to make connection to the existing wiring harness.

Step 7

Connect the yellow wire on the Trailer Cable Harness to the left-turn/stop wire on the existing trailer wiring harness. This wire should be yellow in color on most newer trailer harnesses. Use the supplied Wire Tap Connector to make connection to the existing wiring harness.

Step 8

Connect the green wire on the Trailer Cable Harness to the right-turn/stop wire on the existing trailer wiring harness. This wire should be green in color on most newer trailer harnesses. Use the supplied Wire Tap Connector to make connection to the existing wiring harness.

Step 9

Secure all loose wires to the frame using Wire Ties provided.

Step 10

Connect plug from PropLiteFixture Cable to the mounted and connected Trailer Cable Socket and check function of circuit. Check for illumination with running lights on. Check for brighter illumination when brake is applied. Check to make sure the light doesn’t flash with either turn signal, with or without brake applied.

Tips and Tricks
  1. If you regularly use a transom saver, you can secure the fixture wires directly to the transom saver. Leaving your PropLite™ connected to the transom saver when it is removed for launching.

  2. Again, if you use a transom saver, you can use the PropLite™ in place of the rubber strap (around the motor housing). Use two shorter bungee cords and crimp the bungee hooks shut on all but the one used to fasten the assembly. This way, you remove the transom saver and PropLite™ in one easy step when you are ready to launch.

  3. We have found that one of the best mounting areas for the Trailer Cable Socket is on the top of the trailer frame cross member. This is best done with the boat off of the trailer (so… take your battery operated drill to the marina with you next time).

  4. Underneath the carpeted running boards of your trailer is another great place to mount the Trailer Cable Socket. You will need to use longer wood screws for this installation.

  5. Before calling or returning for warranty, plug light directly into your vehicles trailer light plug. This will verify if light is defective or installed incorrectly or if there is faulty trailer wiring
