I think the reason is since the coast guard had to relamp them offshore they were made to relamp themselves but the bulbs are 1000 hours each so thats 4000 hours total and there is an photocell so at 12 hours a day that cuts it to 8000 hours before service. this is transistorized with a revolving bulb assembly and a relay coil that advances as soon as the bulb is opened kinds like the assembly inside an 8 track player.
