it should be a 12 volt.
i'd take the bulb to a RV supply store (most Wal-Marts will have them) and make sure i was getting the right bulb but it should be kinda hard to mix up.

You might have a better chance going to an RV store than an Autoparts store. Describe your trailer and they'll recommend which bulb to use. You don't want to risk using a bulb that gets too hot for that circuit. Usually older trailers used the "running light" replacement bulb (I forget the number), but these days there are higher intensity bulbs that look the same and you don't want to burn anything because these can get pretty hot.

trailer lamp....... bulb

Look carefully at the lamp you removed and notice the base and the small pins location. These lamps are very common and are found at many stores. If possible do a Google search for 12v small lamps/bulbs, and maybe you could use a different lamp with the same base but more or less lumen/candle power. Buy a few extra lamps. If possible, spray the socket with WD40 and put a dab of electronics grease on the base too. Frank Idaho
