      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Need a light connector for a Shorelander

Recommended Posts

I had a tire blow on my trailer at highway speed. It blew the fender off and the wiring. I can't find the bayonet plug that actually fits the clearance lights. Does anyone have a clue as to where I could buy some? It is not the blue or red style you see everywhere.

You might try calling shorelandr.   When I called them (some years ago) they were very helpful.  

Second choice would be take it to a good auto parts store.  I bet they can tell you what it is and sell you another.

 That should be a very common two wire plug. 

most trailer manufacturers should be able to help.

I work for towmaster  and I know are parts store

could help you out.  But a auto part store should be able

to also.

Thanks, I'll try Shorelander. Perhaps they've changed this. My lights have 2 individual plugs, not a single unit but I'll take whatever works.

I'm so lucky this happened just outside of the Pine City single lane construction  bypass, same for whoever was behind me too.

Bummer, unless it is cheap.  

 

Looking at those connectors again, they look like stuff I have seen at Fleet Farm and places like that as "bullet connectors" in the automobile electrical wiring area, with all the wire and crimp on stuff.  

 

I looked on amazon because it was easy, and got these pictures....

Trick will be to get right size...   But they are cheap.  They also come waterproof with heat shrink.  If you get desperate you could replace both sides....  The kits come with male and female typically. 

I bet any autoparts store sells them as well.

The connector I posted is most definitely the right one. (for that style light)

I've installed dozens of them.

Pretty sure Fleet farm has them too.

If you are in the metro area and willing to pick it up I will be glad to give it to you!

It would be far less work and cost to replace one pigtail than a whole harness.

OK, I will defer to you since you know.  I figured since your picture was ignored that somehow that wasn't the right one.   So I took a whack at it. 

 

Maybe next time.....

I didn't ignore the pic, you may have missed my post stating that I have individual plugs for each wire. I assumed that type of plug was not applicable for my trailer. Apparently Shorelander has changed the connection. All the crimp plugs I have seen at automotive stores, Northern, or Ace hardware have been too large.

 

I appreciate the help and the offer but I'm in town near Oakdale and I'll run out there to Fleet and pick one up.

 

It's amazing that such a small part can be so difficult to locate. My Shorelander manual doesn't show any electrical wiring nor list any of it as a part number.

 It's your choice, I'm only trying to save you some time and money.

  What I think you are not understanding is that this is a standardized plug that is used on many light applications and will fit yours.  It is actually the recommended plug more so than two single ones and is more corrosion resistant. 

 But again, it's your choice so whatever you decide is great!

For cripes sake!!! Wire it over to the plug like Macgyver is showing!!! This is a 5 mn job that shoulda been done bada bing!!! If not that way, any electrical repair shop or box store electrical dept has bullet connectors the size you need...I have an entire tray assortment of them!

RSS, that was why I was going to Fleet Farm - to get the plug - I get that it's changed. I guess you didn't understand my harness was not exactly like what was posted and I was a little hesitant to drop more money until I understood what was going on. I apologize for not being omnipotent. My guess is this one piece style is a lot easier to plug in and out and perhaps more water proof.

 

BTW, the bullet connectors posted don't fit, I've actually tried them. I have trays of them too.

    • I have it staged and ready to go on the shore and probably could push it out by hand. I have what looks like 4 inches of ice.
    • I think he meant Clutches. Does the sled come with clutches?
    • Preference.  120 is towards the rare side.  I do 129.   Great deal on Anova circulators at anovaculinary.com (and probably amazon as well)  I have the cheap one, bluetooth 800 watts. Anyway, here is a writeup about cooking salmon.   A few degrees make a big difference.   http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2016/08/sous-vide-salmon-recipe.html Get one and try it.  You will love it.   Makes cooking nice stuff easy and reliable.   They don't cost a lot.   Right now the Anova  is 109 for the bluetooth one and 129 for wifi.   Control it manually or use an app on your phone.   I just do it manually.  
    • I don’t think this would fly with most of the people I eat most dinners with but it just might with two of the better cooks I know. I’m one who prefers my food cooked JUST enough instead of killing it all over again.  This interests me.
    • Doesn’t everyone have spare crutches in the shed?
    • after it comes out an rests it is another story, in my book... it's sweated out...   and the smoke is good on ya!!!
    • the 120 bothers me....
    • Hey roony I seen that in the meme thread;!
    • Great read! https://www.outdoorhub.com/reviews/2017/11/22/k-drill-auger-milwaukee-tool-m18-fuel-drill-ice-fishing-game-changer/ With the 9amp Red lithium batts it's a ice gobbling machine!
    • When you start slicing some up see if your hands get the smoky  smell on them. Part of the reason I ask is when you get summer sausage from a good meat shop like Schmidts down in Nicollet, MN,  it dose not leave the smell. Just makes me wonder if they use liquid smoke to keep the batches more consistent flavor wise and the skins clear of the smokey smell.
