Make sure you put some caulking around the rubber grommet that is a leak source. Don't ask how I know

The Empty wallet, Tears, and Bloody knuckles is the membership fee.

It is like my mahogany runabout, It is a hole in the water into which you pour money

Good tip on the caulk. I was kinda wondering about where exactly to caulk on the lights that mount to the castings. The 3 middle ones in the rear are pretty obvious since they mount right to the flat body surface. Got them all mounted, they do look so much better with the new lenses. I would like to continue on with other replacements to reduce the amp load on that lighting circuit. Its gotta be pulling a whole lot through that switch.

Thanks for your reply though

As far as 10 volts is present in the rear, I would check the factory harness around where they spliced for the trailer wiring, if not there keep working your way forward with your multimeter until you find battery voltage.

I installed two of the new LED clearance lights on the rear, working on other projects. They work great!

I bought the five amber, and three red I need, and installed one of the amber ones as a test. When I went to remove the original amber lens to see what kind of lights I was dealing with (1 or 2 wire) the base of the clearance light (the white'ish abs) shattered. So I was commited to install one. I had the two wire system, and tested with multimeter to see if I could ground through the body. It worked on the multimeter with 20 VDC selected I showed a 13.1V. So I taped off the ground side, and spliced the hot side, and she fit like a dream. i then used VULKEM to completely surround the base. Will install the others when I have time. Until then they live in my project drawer inside the airstream.
