By float I mean do not ground to chassis. The plug is getting AC. Everything else grounded to the chassis runs off of AC.

I got a 12v light coil and ran it through a trail tech regulator rectifier before the led lights. LED lights will not run well on AC and will burn out quickly. This is 12v DC coming off the reg rec. Do not ground this circuit to the chassis. Mixing grounding of AC and DC is a bad idea. Simply route the black wires back to the reg rec. So float it. Meaning it is not grounded, but the circuit is complete.

For my tail and brake lights I just got cheap bulbs off amazon that had the same base. The headlight is actually intented for a tractor. I dont have the link anymore but its friggin bright as hell. Do a little searching and you'll see which brand I'm talking about.

In a nutshell. To run led lights, get a 12v light coil. Use a reg rec to convert to DC. Float the circuit.

My rig had worked solid for about a year with no issues.
