FYI:

If one should consider Bolers as having "innies," than Love Bugs definitely have "outies."

I think you're pretty awesome Roy. Don't listen to any of the rumors going around about you! Especially the ones started by me ;-)

I'm not in Cali. I'm a BC boy all the way.

Thanks Neil,
Who'd of thunk that Boler California was BC. I never was good at Geography.

On the boler American, the predecesor to your trailer there was a round light above the reflectors on the sides. You can get something like that in LED's too.


Then I could see something similar to this type of bolt light being used beside your main tail light and near your side lights wired to your signal/brakes.

Roy, I'm in beautiful British Columbia.

Cathy, if you don't have a princess auto try checking a local truck shop. The lights look very similar to the ones you find on the back of semi-trailers.

Princess has a web site and I found the lights on sale there as well. ... the actual light on my camper is 4" as stated and the total diameter including the black ring around the light is 5 1/2". It looks to me like it will work but the existing ring around the light is attached with rivets. no holes in the led from Princess. can I drill holes in the new light and rivet it where the old one is now. Is that the way they are usually installed?

Cathy, Princess Auto is a Canadian business... pay attention to shipping costs! You may find what you need on this side of the border or even locally. As Neil mentioned, try a big truck shop... even a big truck stop... they have stores inside and I've found all kinds of LED lights at the TA Truck Stop close to my home. Once you have one in your hand, that will help you decide what you need to do to mount it at it's necessary location.

Thanks for the heads up. I just found several after a search. even Home Depot. I wouldn't have known what to look for if not for this thread. Thanks so much to all.

Yes they will, and Chuck ships to Canada. But every nickle spent in shipping costs takes away from buying product.. or a better grade of product. SHHHHHH don't tell anyone I said that, I work for a worldwide transportation company!
