weekly trailer wiring question

3 posts in this topic

Last fall my trailer lights would work if it I tightened two cable ties around the connectors. Otherwise, if I hit a bump the lights would go out. I was going to be handy for a change. Went out and bought Trailer to Vehicle connector. It had the three male and one female leads like the existing one. I was ready to cut the old one off when I realized that there was an extra brown wire on the one attached to the trailer. I figured I would simply cut 'em off one at a time and splice the new one into place. This extra wire is confusing me. Any insight would be great. Thanks. The cable ties are cheap and seem to work, but this shouldn't be that hard to figure out. thanks

Brown is the running lights. As long as there are four connectors and not five you'll be fine. I'm guessing that that manufacturer split the brown wire at the connector so that it could be run down both sides of the trailer.

airjer is correct. the brown is for the runniing lights, just connect both browns from the trailer to the brown on your new harness.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
