Running lights Don't Work!

Question

Aholzerland311

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 ?

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
