dhaig Posted March 22, 2022 Share Posted March 22, 2022 I am adding a rear mounted enclosed cargo carrier to our new LEII. The cargo carrier has a 4-way male connector and integrated lights which can provide lighting functions typical of a trailer (tail lights, brake lights, directional and flashers). Although the tail lights on the LEII will be visible with the cargo carrier mounted, I would like to also have the lights on the cargo carrier function as well. I will also need to relocated the license plate mount and its light to the rear of the cargo carrier. This seems relatively straightforward, by extending the existing wiring under the spare tire cover. Has anyone added a 4-way lighting female connector and wiring harness to the rear of an LEII to provide lighting on a cargo carrier or bike rack? I have not yet removed the rear wall panel in the basement to explore for the tail light wiring on the LEII. Assuming I can locate wiring connection points, how do I route the wires out the rear of the LEII to the cargo carrier? Fishing the wires through the route taken by the license plate light wiring through the spare tire mount looks very challenging. One approach may be to route the wiring for the rear 4-way female connector into the front of the LEII where the 7-pin connector cable enters the cabin and determining connection points, which I believe would be under the front dinette seat. Then run the wiring for the rear 4-way connector under the body to the rear, fastening the wiring to frame members. I am confident this has been done before. I will appreciate hearing suggestions and lessons learned.
