Scare light bulb

I'm in one place and the trailer is in another. Anyone know the bulb type (part or model #) for late model scare lights?

The stock bulb is an 1141. They tend to run hot and melt the lens. I posted a list of lower wattage alternatives here..

incandescent scare lamp bulb

spec'd for #1156, I believe.

an #1141 will fit, but gives only 70% of the light from an #1156, but also runs "cooler" if you have a plastic lens in the light. (some have reported "melting" the plastic lens of the light.)

Happy New Year!

The correct bulb is #1141 which has 21 candle power.

A # 1156 bulb has 32 candle power.

The 1156 bulb burns much hotter than the 1141.

The 1156 for sure will disfigure the lens.
