Default Side marker/clearance lights single stud mount 2 wire...need help.

Does this light exist?
It seems like all single stud mounted marker lights are single wire...I want to run the ground to the front of the trailer...canít do that with a single wire light.
I donít want to drill any new holes...my existing lights are single stud mounted....what gives?

The one in the link looks like a surface-mount. If you want to run a ground to a single-wire stud-mount light, you can add a ring terminal to the end of a ground wire, and attach it to the mounting stud of the light. The stud is the ground for the light.

The one in the link looks like a surface-mount, or it's got the wrong picture of the item. If you want to run a ground to a single-wire stud-mount light, you can add a ring terminal to the end of a ground wire, and attach it to the mounting stud of the light. The stud is the ground for the light.

I hear ya...Iím trying to keep saltwater from ever making contact with any of my connections. The problem with using a ring terminal on the mounting/grounding post is thereís really no way to seal it off from saltwater.
