Preparing for inspection

The trailer has not been plugged into a vehicle since Fletch delivered it 3 years ago. I guess its not surprising that only 4 of the 20 running lights work. The left blinker and tail light works, but not the right. The backup lights didn’t work at all. The picture below is how I found it when I took off the lense – do’ya think thats why? There is no socket remaining on either side. I’m debating whether to jerry-rig (as opposed to jimmy-rig) a closed unit that I found at Northern Tool or re-wire a socket.
Backup lights

I made a list of the bulb numbers based on the owners manual for running, tail/blinker, backup, and license plate lights. I was able to find them all at Advance Auto (bought a few at Camping World since I bought out the entire stock of running light bulbs at Advance).

    When I tried to replace the running light bulbs, the plastic prongs that hold the metal conductors in the base crumbled on at least 4 of the 10 bases, the rest look like they’re about to disintegrate. The edges are also crumbling and I think there’s only a few more times I can pull off the lenses before they’re destroyed. I decided to splurge and get new LED running lights from Vintage Trailer Supply. I’ll take some photos of them being installed and functional (hopefully) after they arrive.

    The Northern Tool light didn’t fit in the mounting base.
