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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
