Three of the rear top trailer light bulbs are not functioning. anyone know where we can get replacements and what the part # would be? I see nothing in the Bigfoot owner's manual about any replacement bulb part #s. If someone has part #s for any/all of the trailer lights, that would be most helpful, thank you!

I assume we're talking about the clearance lamps here. Often, the same style is used on the front, back, and both sides, with the only difference being the colour of the lens - that's the case on my Boler.

There is little chance that the lamps are custom Bigfoot items, since no one making trailers would bother doing that for their tiny production volume. I found a nearly exact match for my Boler (although a different brand) in most of the RV stores. The bulbs to fit them should therefore be common.

Next, are we talking about lamps not working, or just the bulbs in them? For the bulb, I would just go to an auto parts store with a dead one and start comparing. The complete lamps might only be found from RV, truck, or trailer parts suppliers.

Val, can you post a closeup photo of one (lamp and/or bulb)?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Hi Val,
My owner's manual listed all the replacement bulbs, and a supply of extras was one of my first purchases. They are standard automotive bulbs and you should be able to get them at any auto parts store, here in Canada I got mine at Canadian Tire of course (and a few that they were out of I found in the auto dept. at Wally World, which should have been my first stop)

The list:
Bulb # Type
1141 Kitchen, Overhead & Porch lights
1003 Hitch
1895 Exterior marker / clearance
1156 Back up
1157 Brake & turn

HTH

Lainey, your BF owner's manual must be much more detailed than mine. Mine is only 2 double-sided pages without any specs whatsoever. Weird, because all the other owner's manuals seem complete (for the toilet, AC, etc.). So thank you for sharing--I printed the list out, will add it to the BF Binder and take another copy to find some new bulbs!

Thanks, Brian and Lainey!

Now that I look at the ones in the document center, mine is the same as the second one, 20 pages. That should be the appropriate one for your model year also (Mine was made in late 88, but it's registered as an 89... )

Excellent, what a great resource...thanks! I will print out the Owner's Manuals and go from there.

I noticed that ours is listed as an 88 but was built in June of 87.
