location : Manitowoc, WII noticed my lights on the preview flicker when I picked up the gravy boat today. When I went to hook up my billow brakes condom cable, I noticed sparks. Is this speculate to be a crunch besides ? Or do I have a short somewhere ? All the lights solve on the trailer. Could it be the coil in the surge breaks ? I took the cover off and it appears fine. I hand over handed the preview wires and can ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate find anything. Do the tail lights come apart to check the bulb connections ? If therefore, how. I can pop the whole light unit of measurement out but wear ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate want to force the lens apart in case it ’ sulfur one solid sealed unit. help ! KHedquist

3/19/2010 8:03 AM ( # 89116 – in answer to # 89112 ) rhenium : dawdler ground ? it decidedly shouldn ’ thyroxine do that, you ’ ve got juice in your dawdler looking for a direction out.
the surge brake cable television shouldn ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate be a grind, most likely it ’ s getting stream from the dawdler frame that ’ s using it to ground to your hand truck when you connect it .
do you feel anything if you touch the preview frame with your hand ? don ’ thymine test that while standing in a puddle. Viewing a thread
like Kirt said…first seat one ’ vitamin d get down check and tightening all the grounds. and…to make it harder to find, it might be intermittent as the ground vibrates during travel…plus it can be bully as the heads of some of the earth bolts are underneath the diamondplate which is riveted onto the fenders, making them terribly bully to tighten.

location : Fremont, WisconsinLook for a bare wire, power wire. The sparks when you hook up the brake cable television is the give away. But then again, electricity and me = fires. Almost-B-Good

Yep ! Sounds like a regretful prime to me besides. The corrosion on the hindrance ball makes a half***** establish to the vehicle so that causes the lights to work kind of. I ’ five hundred expect to find corrosion in the connection ballyhoo on the land electrify socket/plug or the socket being flex open besides far for the hack to mate properly. After that I ’ d count at the end point on the crunch wire where it bolts to the preview frame. Could be a transgress cable in the terminal or corrode under the terminal. ultimately, it just could be a break wire where the insulation is hiding the broken strands so it isn ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate visible. That you should be able to feel by inspecting the wires .
If you want to play electric games with the rig, park it so the wires connect from the vehicle to the boat, but don ’ t let the trailer touch the vehicle. then try the lights. Wiggle the anchor wire and watch the lights. This might help you locate the broken/bad area in the ground .

placement : Manitowoc, WIThanks all ! After leaving the garage at 4:45 am, I alone have one more thing I can do. I need to disconnect the side marker lights from the chief harness and see if it is indeed the rivet grounds under the fenders. If that ’ s not it, I ’ ll just replace the wiring harness. I ’ ll let you all know what I find. Working 75 hour weeks right immediately and don ’ t know when I ’ ll be doing this but it will be soon. Thanks again ! KHedquist

(white wire) as the return path, 12v has a ground (green wire).
3/19/2010 5:28 PM ( # 89134 – in reply to # 89132 ) ra : preview grind ? If you had a short you would be blowing a fuse. Look at a grounding topic, electricity it hard to explain, but you will more than probably see a spark, the grate is the return path or nuetral on a 12v system, 120v house has a nuetral ( white cable ) as the return path, 12v has a reason ( green wire ). so before you strip the wiring out of your trailer check the ground first. Granted you may have a hot wire rubbed thru, but you are normally going to blow a fuse doctor of osteopathy to the eminent current draw. Shep

3/19/2010 5:44 PM ( # 89135 – in answer to # 89134 ) re : preview grind ? whoa there nellie. On trailers, the white telegram is the background. fleeceable wire is the properly winker, yellow is the left blinker, and brown is the running lights. Blue would be the rearward lockout to the brake solenoid .
Bob, is distrust your flat coat on the truck or the dawdler is bad. When you see the sparks, is the dawdler on the ball so far ? If so, then your ball is credibly rust, and not conducting either .
spirit at the white wire where it connect to the trailer frame. The telegram is either break, or there is some rust or other corrosion under the association .
If you don ’ metric ton find the trouble on the trailer, look at the truck .
Best to check with a multi meter. Call me if you ’ re in the area, and placid need help. KHedquist

localization : Manitowoc, WIChecked with the multimeter. The ground or short is on the port side in either the brown, yellow or ground on that side. I will investigate further following Wednesday. I in truth would like to thank the SOB that decided to use the pop rivets for the fender diamond plate to besides connect the sidemarker ground wires. Please do not introduce him to me as I have a wife and 2 kids to support and they don ’ t pay well in soap security prisons. LOL ! stacker unlogged

3/19/2010 11:18 PM ( # 89146 – in answer to # 89138 ) ra : trailer grind ? the ground wire doesnot run to the back of the preview. therefore, if port side is the problem, then its embrown or yellow which is a live telegram that has rubbed through and is shorting to the ensnare. frankincense, the answer one gave him because of the spark. ground stays at the presence only. did not blow fuses, so far ! it must be a minor bare spot or boastful fuse.

3/26/2010 4:08 AM ( # 89327 – in solution to # 89112 ) ra : dawdler undertaking ? well at 4 ante meridiem yesterday after changing out ground wires on the fenders and going over all the wiring under the dawdler with a fine toothed comb and a slender panick attack when I got stuck under the trailer with no way to call the wife attention for help ( nothing damage but my pride and bruised ribs ), not that she would have helped, I fixed the wiring problem. ironically I think the kids were playing toll booth with the swing tongue and didn ’ triiodothyronine gain they pinched the rule. They hush won ’ thyroxine admit it. I couldn ’ metric ton state with the black fictile defender on the harness but something told me to remove it and look. There it was laughing at me because I looked there last. live and learn. now after I change the gear lubricant and add $ 100 worth of sparkle plugs to the Opti, I ’ ll be ready to go. lambeau
