Boler 1976 tail lights

Hello all,

I have intact tail light covers which I would like to use. At present my right side double contact bayonet is working (turns on, brake, signal) but my single contact bayonet is not working. On the left side double contact bayonet is only turning on.
I have searched through the posts here but cannot find answers to a couple of questions so here they are.
1. What is the original tail light assembly for the Boler 1976.
1. Thoughts on what could be the problem to troubleshoot.
1. Has anyone replaced the wire harness with LED while keeping the original covers? If yes, do you have any links to share or instructions of what you did?

Thanks so much!

Sheila, I had a 1974 Boler 13 and currently have a 1979 Boler 17. Both had original "wedding cake" style round 7" taillights. Each taillight had one lightbulb socket with two positive pins (one for running light, the other for turn signal and brake function). An 1157 style bulb was used.

In both trailers, I replaced the original taillights with 7" LED bus taillights. That said, some people have inserted a sealed LED tail lamp into the original "wedding cake" shell.

If you want answers regarding problems with your particular taillight fixtures, post some photos of them.
