Smile LED Backup Trailer lights - submersible?

Hi Chris, I am looking for some LED backup/reverse trailer lights, preferably surface mount or if flush mount, a bracket that is aluminum or SS to prevent corrosion and the light needs to be waterproof down to approx. 3' or labeled as submersible.

I have a couple of surface mounts lights now that claimed waterproof, but on second year, they are going out due to moisture inside.

Anything like this out there?

Having a hard time believing the light manufacturer's are not focusing on backup lights has they have been invaluable for me where I am on a busy road and need to backup into the driveway. Since the backup lights were installed, I get less birds flying by!

Thanks Ryan, but I can only use lights mounted on the trailer near the tail lights due to very tight tolerances when backing in gate. Literally gave only about 1" on bothside. No room for error!🤨
The only place to mount is on lower part of the trailer which goes under water.

I made some lights that clamped to the transom of the boat that had a trailer plug to a harness in the rear. we had the same tight gate scenario

These are the two we sell the most often for trailer backup lights. The 1294162 is sealed/waterproof, the 1326493 isn't listed as waterproof, it might be and we have sold a bunch of them for backup and have not heard of any failures? I have some other lights that are listed as submersible for live wells and accent lighting, but not bright enough for your intended purpose IMHO.
