I recently bought a boat & trailer boat trailer. While tinkering on it, I realized that the license plate on the trailer does not have a light on it. Can anyone recommend a waterproof one, or have any other suggestions for this?

Not sure if that is a requirement. Take a look at every farm trailer that you see.

If the license plate is mounted under the trailer tail light it should illuminate it. It should have a clear spot in the plastic to shine through onto the license plate.

Thank you for responding. Relocating the plate might be easier than adding a light, great suggestion.

If that's the case, the previous owner must have put the tail lights on wrong. Left on right & right on left.

I see that on utility trailers and travel trailers but all my boat trailers have had separate lights for the license plate. That is because the taillights are recessed. The light on my Champion trailer was out and I could not find a clear one. I had an extra red one laying around so I just used it. It illuminates the plate fine. If the OP feels the need for one tit would be easy to add.
