Karavan trailer light help

9 posts in this topic

A brake light went out in my '04 Karavan trailer while I was up at Cass Lake. I opened it up to replace bulb before the drive home to find two bulbs within a clear plastic waterproof housing. The housing had water in it which fried the bulb I assume. I had to break the thing open with a channel lock to replace the bulb.

Anyone know where can I get a new one of those bulb housings? Can't find anything online or in my trailer owner manual.

Thanks in advance for the help.

This summer I worked on a Ranger trailer for someone with the same type of tail light and I had to go to the local marine dealer and order the waterproof bulb assembly.

I think it cost about $15.

It may be helpful to get the serial number off of the trailer to make sure that they order the correct replacement.

I had mine go out late last year and I picked up a replacement from Absolute Trailer Sales. There is a good chance that a trailer store will have what you want, not just a marine dealer.

I had the same problem. If you buy a new tailight for the trailer it comes with a removeable cover with four screws to change the bulbs. They sell them at gander mtn. or Walmart.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
