Default Powered Stern Light...

Anyone else have a powered stern light on there ride? I keep breaking/losing the clear lenses over the led while its being trailered, never on the water always going down the road somehow. Just seeing if anyone else has had this issue?

I just had to replace mine this week. $9.XX for the lens from Innovative Lighting....$11.XX to ship it, lol.

They suggested putting a little bit of silicone adhesive on the threads to keep it from unscrewing. Mine was broken however.

Broke/lost mine too going down the road. I bought 2 replacements, tried super glue on the threads this time although they recommended silicon. Its been 2 months now, no issues so far.

Yes I have mine secured at the bottom with the strapping they included. I have an 1/8" piece of aluminum in between the light bezel and the boat to cover up old holes, I wouldnt think that would cause it since the light recalibrates itself after going up and down.

had the same issue..
they told me to sent the light back because they have to replace some clutch inside the unit...
the clutch pulls the light down too far and breaks the lense..
