I have a 1976 Boler
1300, and I'm working on replacing the incandescent light
bulbs with LEDs. Yesterday, while plugged to my vehicle's 12V via the 7-way cable (I don't have a battery
for my Boler
yet), I tried a LED BA15s in the left rear socket, and it worked perfectly. The right rear socket still had an incandescent light
, which also worked (but dimmer). The two interior lights
also worked, as well as the porch light
A few of my side marker lights
were defective, so I decided to change the four GE 55 bulbs with new 12V BA9s bulbs while I wait for LED bulbs to arrive. After installing them, the tail lights
don't work anymore, nor do the red side marker lights
(the ones closer to the rear end of the Boler). And I've noticed some weird behavior... When I put in 12V LED lights
in the interior of the Boler
(two), when I switch them on the porch light
dims... And vice-versa.
Another thing. My yellow side marker lights only work when I switch my towing vehicles lights off. If I switch them on, nothing in my Boler works anymore on the 12V (even the porch light).
Now I realize that the GE 55 bulbs are 6V bulbs. Is that the way to go on a 12V circuit???
I was wondering if anybody has had anything like this happen....
