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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
