Running lights Don't Work!

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was hoping for some advise. It sounds like this is the place to go. I have a 2006 Shorelander trailer. Saturday night my running lights wouldn't go on. The brake lights and signals worked fine. I hooked the harness up to another veichicle and the same thing happened. I can't believe that all the bulbs would have burn't out. I unhook the lights and let them cool before backing the boat in. Any idea's????

First thing I would do is check your ground.

You need to start by checking the brown wire on the trailer side for power. It doesn't matter where you start. I would start near the plug and work my way to the back. Eventually you will find the spot where the circuit is open. More than likely a broken wire or a wire that has severely correded somewhere.

It shouldn't take you long at all to find. Good Luck!!

Check your ground and power as suggested. You may also want to check the fuses in the box under the hood. I had that problem and it ended up being the fuse, which I didn't even know was there.

If brake lights work you have ground, I would start with fuses first then as mentioned the brown wire from truck connector to end of trailer. Do you have LED lights or standard lightbulb ?

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
