I recently purchased a Featherlite bumper pull that has some damage to the front and left side from getting side swiped. I’m having trouble finding parts for it, specifically a replacement running board and the diamond plate on the front. I’m in the Knoxville,TN area but am fine with shipping parts if needed. Does anyone know where I could order parts needed? Or if anyone knows of someone in my area or close that could fix it I’ve called 10 places today and I’m at my wits end.
Also none of the interior lights on the trailer are working but exterior are all fine, how should I go about fixing them?
If someone could explain how to post pictures on here I can post to get a better idea of the damage.

i am not sure if a good auto body/restoration place would be of value.. and you can call Featherlite to see if they have the parts. I had to get new hinges for my 1999 trailer. I went through a dealer, though, which is OK because I like and trust my FL dealer.
As for the lights, hook up your trailer and start your engine, turn on your truck lights and see if that turns on the ilghts in the trailer. My lights in my 1999 FL and my 2014 Sundowner do not work unless the engine is on and the lights on the truck are on. But I found on my 2015 Ford Super Duty 250, I have to add a fuse to a relay in the fusebox so that the interior lights will work without having to start the engine. I remember when we got the truck I saw an extra fuse in the glove box. Well, that is for the interior trailer lights. I had to research that on the internet and found it out on a Ford Forum. I haven't put the fuse in yet because I have not had to pull the trailers since I found that tidbit of information, but I will do that next time I have the truck in for DE fluid replacement. That will make life a lot easier not having to have the truck running to have the lights on.

I did some googling after posting this and found out it was a fuse missing under my hood! I put one in and got the lights working. I don’t have any Featherlite dealers around me but maybe they could ship the parts

Good Morning! We aren't a Featherlite dealer, but it may be possible that the exact running bosard you have is no longer available. But there are certainly substitutes out there. The ATP (aluminum treadplate) on the front is a generic material. So getting materials shouldn't be an issue. We are in Shelbyville, abdout 3 hours from you. If we can help with parts or actual repairs, feel free to give our Parts or Service folks a call or note. Parts@Selecttrailer.com or Service@Selecttrailer.com. Better or worse- in our industry you are a local customer, even at 200 miles.
