Trailer wiring question 2.... side markers

4 posts in this topic

Don't want to hijack the other thread. Have an 82 shorelandr trailer that HAD original wiring and plug. It still has original wiring, but I had to put a new plug on it. Four-flat.

The old one had 5 wire connections. It has yellow, green, white, brown/yellow and brown/green (I think, can't remember exactly). I also don't know how they were hooked up to the plug, as I loaned the boat and they dragged unplugged plug, so I could not figure it out...

The new plug (for boat) has simply yellow, green, brown, white, as it was made from a simply extension.

I connected the brown/yellow and brown/green from the trailer to the brown of the plug. Green to green, yellow to yellow and white to ground.

Now all works except the side markeers. I must have messed up, the browns?... Any advice before I simply trial and error it?

Thanks much!

The browns should go to the side markers in addition to the running light connection of the rears.

Have you checked the bulbs and the grounds on the side markers?

Right, I kinda thought thats what the brown combos were, but assumed they should both connect to the single brown from the plug. I did not check the lights yet, but prior to the "plug shaving" the side markers were working. I will check them though, to be sure.

Thanks.

Yeah, the brown combos should both connect to the single brown wire.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
