They are normal screw in light bulbs just like regular household ones. The ones that came in thee units are 50 watt, and I would like to get some of them or even 100 watt. They seem the size of a normal 100 watt light bulb.

Home Depot sells the medium base 12 volt light bulbs, but I'm unsure of the wattage. Word of caution, if your lights came with 50 watt bulbs and you upgrade to 100 watts, you just double the current draw. Might want to make sure your wiring, socket, fuse panel can handle the additional load.

Thanks,

yeah, I just called Home Depot and they said they don't carry the bulbs anymore, but I am going to take your advice on keeping with the 50 watt instead of up grading. great advice!

Thanks,

I'm over here in Walton County and I called Destin Half Hitch and they don't carry them anymore the guy said. Boy, they are hard to find. I have found them at RV stores though for any of you looking for some.
