Recently I barely hit my shin into a Harbor Freight trailer light and it slightly broke the plastic holding the light to the housing. Somewhere on the highway it blew off entirely.

One day I'll find sturdy LED trailer lights and mount them at a point less susceptible to impact, wire it with speaker wire rather than the garbage Harbor Freight junk, and place it in conduit to keep it from dangling and getting damaged. Only then do I have some small confidence the lights will be reliable.
