How many LED lamps can you run on a trailer circuit?

Postby videographer » Fri Jun 10, 2016 10:28 am

Hi all. Building my foamie, it's going well, gotta start thinking about lights. Got my taillights working last night, and would like to have some marker lights around the top of the rig. I'm working on the assumption that since LEDs have such minuscule draw compared to incandescents that this shouldn't be a problem, but what are the limits?

If it helps, my current tow vehicle is a 2008 Kia Sedona minivan. Any info appreciated!

You could light it up like a Christmas tree and be fine.

I have 5 incandescent side marker lights per side on chubby plus the standard turn and tails and no problem with any of my 4 tow vehicles.
