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.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
