I am trying to find a replacement lens cap as I have none. Can any one look and see if theirs has a number? The original was on a flat base, was circular and stood off the platform. The dealer wants to know is it:

Peterson M440 or some number and letters…

Thanks so much!

Pam

Good luck.

Pam, I ordered two of these, but have not yet installed, from the same store Vintage Trailer Supply, $5.65 each. They look the same, but they expect to have the ground from the screws, so I will hard wire a ground to them. I am planning to see if I can just swap the lenses but haven't had the time. They look like perfect matches.

Pamela, just cause you asked nice, and the rain was holding off for a minute. I ran out and popped off the old, and put on one of the new lights. Fits just fine, but you have to replace the base as well (it is included, but the new lens is just a hair larger so it wont stay on the old base). I was able to move over the old wires easily, I was also able to use the same screw holes, just had to rotate 180 degrees from my first try. The new ones come with a rubber gasket, my originals had no gasket, and water came out in my hand when I popped off the lens.

They visually are just the same as the originals.

Go ahead order a pair.

Mike

Mike,

cool...you got on top of it so fast!!! (makes me look bad...)

My lenses just came in for the 110 150's...cool awesome fit. Mike-did you get the red or amber? (for the small lights?) I have one cover left and it looks like it once was amber.

It looks so much better with the original lens caps-I am glad that I didn't replace them with the walmart cheapies.

Pam, I ordered red for the top (I think all lights at the rear of the trailer need to be red, amber/orange for the front) and they look perfect. Before you have to ask I replaced the side lights this past weekend. Vintage Trailer Supply did not appear to have the right size, but I picked up two red and two amber lights from Lowes. Once installed these look perfect as well. All are wired up and look like they have been there forever. FYI I wired the top rear lights as well as the side markers as driving lights. I considered wiring the top rear as turn signals or brakes but decided to leave the wiring as originally intended.

I'm not that fast, it has been raining here almost non-stop for the past six weeks. I ran out because the rain let up for an hour or so. I looked at cheap replacements and just was not happy with the way they would have looked.

I suspect that I may need to add a light over the license plate, I think the original tail lights had a clear lens on the bottom of the drivers side tail light.

Is the license plate light a requirement? interesting question. I didn't think about that problem...

It is in Massachusetts, but then again we like to make laws in search of a problem.
