Any big box home improvement / general store will have kits.

Only needs to be submersible if you plan to put them underwater.

Kragen auto, or whatever they're called now has them for cheap. Or Northern Tool if you don't mind paying shipping.

If your tow vehicle isn't already wired, you may need to get an electronic converter for the turn signals/brake/parking lights. All of the kits I looked at came with the old style 4 wire harness for older cars without separate turn signal lamps.

Try sourcing from etrailer.com. I've gotten lots of stuff from them. Broad product lines, reasonable prices, good support, and they have lots of how-to videos that have been great in a pinch for me.

Good luck!
