Running lights Don't Work!

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was hoping for some advise. It sounds like this is the place to go. I have a 2006 Shorelander trailer. Saturday night my running lights wouldn't go on. The brake lights and signals worked fine. I hooked the harness up to another veichicle and the same thing happened. I can't believe that all the bulbs would have burn't out. I unhook the lights and let them cool before backing the boat in. Any idea's????

First thing I would do is check your ground.

You need to start by checking the brown wire on the trailer side for power. It doesn't matter where you start. I would start near the plug and work my way to the back. Eventually you will find the spot where the circuit is open. More than likely a broken wire or a wire that has severely correded somewhere.

It shouldn't take you long at all to find. Good Luck!!

Check your ground and power as suggested. You may also want to check the fuses in the box under the hood. I had that problem and it ended up being the fuse, which I didn't even know was there.

If brake lights work you have ground, I would start with fuses first then as mentioned the brown wire from truck connector to end of trailer. Do you have LED lights or standard lightbulb ?

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
