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.
