:D All too true. Except the post would start like this...

Hello, I think my light bulb has gone out. Has anyone else experienced this? If this bulb is faulty, what kind of bulb should I use to replace it? There are so many to chose from! How Many hours should I get from a new bulb?

Follow-up post: Well I took all of your advice and selected the GE 3-Way 50-100-250. Man the 250 really kicks arse! :dance:

2-One to change the lightbulb and 1 to post a :popcorn:

2-One to change the lightbulb and one to question whether or not the Union guys were involved.

Sorry...Friday late afternoon...need to find the "It's Friday Time for a drink" thread.

This is just so awsome!

How about 9 to discuss weather it's MC's fault that the bulb in your house blew in the first place & why it should be covered under warranty even though the boat warranty ended 2 years ago.:popcorn:

Life was much simpler before light bulbs or is it lightbulbs or is it lamps or is it LED's??? :eek: :confused: I'm fed up with this thread and moving on and BTW...will those in charge please move this thread to the "Electrical" section. If it doesn't belong there, move it to "Maintenance". It actually belongs in "Maintenance" because if the bulb is blown out and it needs repla...oh, you know.

Yes, but since we all use said light bulb/lightbulb, then it properly belongs in this section for all to see.

Is that the factory ballast? What size ballast is required for bulb surfing and where do you place the ballast?
