light boards
« on: Sat 9 Mar 08:17 2019 »
Hey guys, my bro in law was getting a road worthy done for is boat trailer that he was selling, and was told by the guy doing it that the light board was no good (it worked perfectly). He reckoned that light boards were to be used as an emergency substitute only when your fixed trailer lights malfunctioned. Sounds to me that he was trying to drum up some extra work by repairing the old fixed lights. Any ideas ? I have used lightboards for as long as i can remember.- cheers

He's full of crap, and should be reported. The only reason light boards draw attention is if the VIN doesn't match with the registration. (some people swap the boards from trailer to trailer)

refer to Qld transport website and ADR's.

I use a light board and have for the last 10+year,but probably risk a fine for having no trailer lights between taking the board off to launch and re fitting it post recovery, even on the ramp or in the car park.
