    Bow light (red/green) bulb replacement-gctid385214

    I noticed that my red light is out up on the front of my boat. What kind of bulb does it take? Can i get one at an auto parts store? I guess i will replace the green side at the same time.

    i believe it is only one bulb in there

    it lights up both sides of the lenses

    it was like that on my buddies 1998 2855

    i cant remember what the bulb was though


      Best thing to do is pull the old bulb(s) and get new of the same type.

        Per the coast guard regs, to be legal you will need to replace it with a like bulb. Identical units can come with different bulbs, so you really need to pull your old bulb out and get matching ones. Changing both at the same time is a good idea. Keep the old one for a spare. I keep a miscellaneous collection of bulbs AND fuses that are on my boat. It has been very handy numerous times.
