    LED marker light caught fire

    When moving trailer around the yard the other night, the LED marker light caught fire and the plastic housing had 6-8" flames. I used the extinguisher out of the bow tub to put it out. Trailer wire was warm, but no fuse blew in tow vehicle. Trailer was plugged in for no more than 10 minutes and this was a day after launching in saltwater. I was an early adopter of LED lights, so these are likely 10-12 years old and this one hasn't worked the last 8 or so years. Not sure of brand, it is marked ILC202 and has a molded in logo on back.
    I suppose the lesson here is disconnect or replace LEDs that are not working. I had added clearance markers to fenders for better visibility from the front and didn't bother with these poorly placed side markers.
    Glad it didn't happen on the road.
