Trailer lights Receptacle on a cub

Anyone ever put a receptacle on their Cub so they can power lights on a trailer / wagon?

I been kicking around the idea of adding some rear lights to my hay wagons!

I believe there is such a socket in the parts catalog, but never seen one on a tractor. They were pretty common on bigger tractors.

Below is a page from the 1955 Cub operator's manual, showing the Break Away Connector, and where it was mounted.
I don't see it listed in the 1965 Cub and LoBoy operator's manual. :) ... e%2073.jpg

I put a connector on my 130, several years ago. I just wired up a 4 flat connector, as I did not care if it was original or not at the time.
We made up a light bar, and just hooked it up to what ever we were needing lights on at the time.

I have a round 4 pin connector on my Cub and my 40 H for pulling my firewood trailer.

Just don't forget to put a fuse or circuit breaker in line. I put a cigarette lighter socket on my 184 by the seat (facing rearward) and use it to power LED lights and a 12v sprayer. I put a switch on the dash to make it easy to start and stop the sprayer.

I chose the cigarette lighter socket because the plug can just pull out in case of a possible breakaway situation.
