Replacing boat trailer lights
The time has come to replace the trailer lights on my boat. The trailer is maybe 15 years old, the screws on the lights are rusted up, the bulbs are corroded so bad that the glass broke from the metal base.
There are a couple of boat stores in Jasper Texas, but none of them were open on sunday. In order to get the lights fixed before an upcoming river camping trip, my wife and I went down to the local wal-mart and bout 2 replacement lights.
After opening the package and trying to mount the light, I discovered the lock washer is so small, it slips through the hole in the light mount.
Well dang it, now I have to go to the local hardware store and buy some larger washers. The bolt on the back of the light measures right at 1/4 across. To make sure the washer is going to fit, I am going to buy washers with a 5/16 hole in them.
I bought the washers tonight, they measure 5/16 hole X 1 1/4 across.
