Trailer Lighting Problem

4 posts in this topic

I backed my Shoreland'r into the water tonight and forgot to unhook the lights. frown.gif Before anyone else points out the obvious, I already know that I am an absent-minded (Contact Us Please). mad.gif

Having established that I am an airhead, what do I do now? The rear lights on the trailer worked fine when I left the ramp, but by the time I got home they weren't working at all. The caution lights on the side of the trailer tongue, which stayed above water, still work fine.

The fixtures that hold the tail lite bulbs probley filled with water when you backed into the lake to unload and or load your boat, check the bulbs first, cold water, hot bulbs don;t mix very well.

Thnaks to all for the advice. All I needed was a pair of new bulbs. When it comes to electrical issues I am pretty much an id--I mean, not very smart, or good at it. I didn't know if fixing the problem would be as simple as changing the bulbs, or if I might have more wiring work to do.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
