Wiring a boat trailer isn't too bad, if you were at all interested in trying to do it yourself.

I don't know anybody in the bis/man area to do it, but I did my own a few years ago to replace old lights with  new LED stuff and it was a cinch.

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.

Ok Thanks- I think that is going to be what will happen DIY as they say.  It more about time - but working on this is better than remodeling a batthroom..

It's pretty easy, I had my trailer done in just a few hours.  I'm sure you'll have no troubles.  I used a fish tape from work to feed the wiring through.

Easy to do, just tape new wires onto old wires and pull thru frame. Ground wire is the main culprit 95% of the time of flickering or none working lights.

So I want to say that to rewire (complete ) not difficult but time consuming. Remember to have you partner read y to test thing when it's all getting hooked up.
Few hours is a good estimate. 3-4 with complete rewire, lights, gruods, tail etc.

Did you get it all done with no problems?

If you are in the Minot area, I would do it for $100 and you buy the parts.
