If your looking for protection for the trailer connection there is several ways, one is to use inline fuses for each of the trailer wires or use auto reset breakers. Or you can buy one from Modulite. Modulite

That's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Which one are you going with?

I would think that would be more of pain than buying a $50 module? Or is there a quick/simple conversion kit out there?

I pull a lot of trailers that don't belong to me so that's not really an option.

Switching to LED's won't help with shorting wires on a trailer. Modulite protects the truck's electrical system from shorts on the trailer.
