 I need to replace the lights on the Ass Rack, the old ones corroded from the salt >:( Are the LED lights saltwater proof ?

Pretty much.  It helps to unplug the lights before dunking the boat/trailer and pulling out first, but my LED's last about 3+ years on average.
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

That's about what I got out of the regular lights, but last trip I had nothing but rusty sockets. I guess I will give them a try. Any brand in particular that you prefer ?

I use my trailer and lights 100x more a year than you do, so take that into consideration.  LOL

I go Walmart ones.  They seem to work just fine.
