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.

According to Shorelander I will only be able to buy the right side harness and rewire that whole side.

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 never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
