Side running lights

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the side running lights (led) do not work, but the front and rear work (hazard, turn, brake work)? My TV has a way of checking to ensure they work and it states it does. Iím sure this function works on the TV because it does this for a car hauler I own as well. Are the trailer fuse box and camper fuse box independent of each other?

Appreciate you alls help!

I would think you have a bad splice in the marker light wiring.

The taillights, front, rear, and side marker lights are all on one single circuit powered by the TV. The hazard, turn and brake lights have nothing to do with the marker light circuit. As merlinhomeauto stated you apparently have a loose connection/bad splice going to the feeds for the side marker lights. Sounds like you may need some assistance from someone who better understands the wiring system.

After reading my question, I can see how it is confusing, sorry about that. Simply was asking about the camper exterior trailer lights have anything to do with the electrical panel inside the camper and I don’t see a correlation between the two, which should have been obvious to me because the trailer lights power comes from the truck.

I appreciate you alls input on this...

Does anyone know the 7 pt plug’s color for the side markers? I’ve googled around a bit and best I can see is brown wire. Going to try and find the loose splice (I hope that’s all it is) tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

This is for future people who have a 2018 29.5 bhds. There are indeed two separate circuits that work the running lights on your trailer. They (manufacturer and/or dealer) forgot to connect them to the main lead that does the front and rear lights.

Kind of like he said... but the slice wasn't bad, it was nonexistent!

Glad it is resolved and thank you for letting everyone know.
