Signal light wiring

Hello ... I am working on a 2006 Eagle 301RLS. I am having issues with the signal / brake lights. Can anyone tell me if there is a junction box for this wiring and if so, where can I find it?

You should find a "junction" box or wiring terminal for your hitch harness somewhere in the front of the unit, most likely in the area near the battery compartment.
I found out this from a previous post. Read the threads on that post and hopefully you'll have success. Either way, let us know your results.

Thanks ... I did remove the battery box/slide and it did give me access to a lot of wiring. Unfortunately not the connections I was looking for. I am still working on tracing these wires back, but haven't solved it yet.

I've read several forum posts about lighting problems like yours and most start off talking about checking the ground wire. I presume you've confirmed the bulb is good and it's not LED.
Here is a link to our forum's best search engine.

Also confirm from your 7-Way plug that there is power running to that socket. There are two plugs in the 7-Way that when crossed all the running lights turn on... best to short it with a fuse.
The color code for wiring harnesses per eTrailer.com
  • Green: Tail/running lights
  • Yellow: Reverse Lights
  • Brown: Right turn/brake light
  • White: Ground wire
  • Blue: Brake controller output
  • Black: Battery hot lead
  • Red: Left turn/brake light

I know the ground wire from the 7-pin connector to the frame is good - there is good continuity there. I used a power probe tester to check that I have a working clearance light circuit and that the brake circuit works. I think my next step is to test the signal light wires for continuity.

On mine the box is at the end of the cable that has the 7 pin plug on the end. It is screwed on the front of the frame at the back of the A frame. Yours may be in a different place but that big 7 pin cable should be traceable to a junction box somewhere.

1st part of the mystery solved... didn't find a junction "box" but did find where the 7-wire cable connected with the various wires. I had to remove one of the aluminum skin panels beside the pin box. Looks like mice made a nest in there and chewed some of the wires.
Can anyone provide a link to a wiring diagram? Thanks

Success at last. Found a spot where the trailer wires go through a hole in the pin box. The rubber grommet that was supposed to protect the wires was gone, and contact with the sharp metal edge had cut 4 of the 6 wires. Mystery solved - I'm back in business again. ��

Thanks for the replies

Glad you found the problem. Sometimes it takes a little detective work, combined with skill and a bit of luck.
