    Equipment Tail Lights and Turn Signal/Flasher Lights

    I need some expert opinions.

    I am putting lights on the rear of my TKV-20. The tractor is set up so that Red is tail lights and Yellow is flashers or turn signals, one side lights up solid yellow, the other flashes the direction I want to turn.

    1. Should the red tail lights be on the outside.
    2. Should the yellow flasher be on the outside.

    my flat bed trailer had the orange trailer signal on the left side to flash--then the red one was running light-and doubled as the brake light

    so my vote is for the left side to flash-ok

    The final result. Flashers to the outside. Thanks for the replies. That’s what I wanted but sometimes I am the only one that agrees with me.
