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.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
