    so i don't have time to get trailer wiring all hooked up on my rig by friday, but i might want to tow something that day. is there a unit which will plug into my existing tail lights such that i can just mount some lights which run directly off of the tail light wiring onto the trailer?

    I was able to find a plug that went inbetween one of the connectors for one of the tail lights. Then it had a the flat 4 connector to connect to a trailer.

    there are adapters that clip right in to your existing wiring harness. you can get them at most auto parts store. no wiring required, just unclip the harness back by the bumper and insert the adapter.

    you beat me to it. check out reese or draw tite. they call them T-connectors

    Or just use vampire clips. The colors are the same.

    Guys, what he's saying is that the trailer doesn't have lights and he wants to know if there are some magnet type lights that can quickly be hooked into his wiring then just put the lights on the trailer.
