    replacing standard taillights with led lights on my trailer

    I have a ford f150 that does not have led lights. I have an Imagine 2018 25RL and thinking about replacing all the exterior lights with led lights. Will this cause an issue with the electrical system?

    It might. Flasher solenoids expect a minimum resistance to work, and LEDs have far lower resistance. When I upgraded my Jeep to LEDs I had to add resistors to each lamp circuit.

    Will not effect the truck at all.

    As long as you leave at least a couple of standard incandescent bulbs on the tow vehicle you should be able to replace all the other bulbs with LEDs. The first answers is correct, the blinker module looks for resistance, by leaving a couple of standard bulbs on the tow vehicle the blinker sees that resistance. I found that out with my Ford.
