Trailer wiring question 2.... side markers

Question

BoxMN

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.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
