    OK i have a inexpensive rotator caution light that i bought from TSC two years ago this is the one that looks similar to a tear drop, anyway the light bulb went out and i replaced it with a standard automotive style bulb (the bulb is a small style 1156 or as on the package 97 bulb). So here is my problem it just does not seem to be as bright as the original one and i can't seem to find if a higher watt bulb, the one i took out had this on the side 12V20WATT. So are these bulbs different than a standard automotive bulb, and where can I get one?

    Go back to TSC and ask them, they should be able to help you better. Or maybe if you get a blue vision style, if they make them. I'm not sure if they do.

    Yeah they a bit different, but Napa or Carquest has them, may need to order, but they carry them. Might be 5-10 bucks though. Take the old one with you.

    There a brighter light out put bulb, mostly for head light and fog light aps, but I have seen them for blinker and marker lights also. Oh yeah stop rubbing in your snow storm. All we got out of it was ice and rain. We have an inch or so of sluch on the ground, good enopugh to push one of the accounts but it doesn't count. :cry:

    We got 2.5 inches during the day (started @ about 9:45 AM - 11:30 AM) so we had to plow while business were open and i hate that, but you have to take when you can right.

    firelawn, you need to get into the salt buisness. I was bummed by the lack of snow we got after all of the forecasts we were given over the past week. While we only scraped a little snow and sluch we have salted 6 times since last sunday. I know it isn't the same as a good clean snowfall. Your stuff gets trashed but it is good easy money! Lets hope for one last blast !!!

    Yeah i could tell you were just messing around, and i hear you about forcasters. I don't know if you watch any of the local ones like (wnem 5 weyi 25 and whatever chanel 12 is) but i like the way M Toragrossa from 25 does his forcast, the guys from news 5 still need to learn how to read their computer models.

    Magna your right but I want to get a beater truck when I do this. This next year I will probably be doing the salting thing along with all the other plowers out there. I just don't want my truck to rot away, its still a nice truck and I want to keep it that way for a while. I do a little salting but its done by hand. I lost a-lot of money this year and it wont happen next year, SALT SALT SALT. lolpayup

    Nothing today and it looks that way for awhile, which is fine. My wife asked me if we were getting any snow tonight because she did not want to get stuck with all the company coming over tonight for the UFC, as far as joking I'm easy to get along with as it looks loke you are too.
