Ummm, I've tried all these things; and actually tried all the other combinations - just in case I'm misreading the keyway. If the weather ever lets up I'm gonna test for 12V with a meter.

I first used the above autozone flasher (LL552) then upgraded it to another "Best" flasher, $11. Neither worked.

I'm guessing that I either have a too loose connection or no power - for whatever reason.

OK I braved the elements and found that I have no 12V at the plug (I checked all pins, just in case). Then I verified that I do have working 12V lights inside the trailer.

When I opened the battery compartment I found one 30A fuse - it was fine. Separately I found a single black wire tied into the positive battery terminal ...

?which I assume is the other end? Are there any hidden in-line fuses?

Great Cheap Mod.

I picked up a Novita 552 flasher for $2 and it worked right away. Made up a jumper and it worked great also. Thanks fellow campers!! Cool Cheap mod.

Not sure how long the 552 will last as it says its rated for only 4 bulbs. It does flash slow, like a heavy duty flasher.

WRASCAL - If you have been randomly shorting out all the other possibility I can almost assure you a fuse has got blown somewhere. Now your SAFETY LIGHTS will not work when you hook them back up to the truck trailer connector. You need to get things back to normal again and in working order... The #4 blade/socket will have 12VDC on it either coming from the trailer battery or the truck battery when the ignition key is on.

The only SOCKETs you should have been playing with is the #3 and #4. These are the two sockets separated by the raised key on the trailer connected that is connected to the trailer side that plugs into the truck 7-way connector.

Holding the 7-way connector coming from your trailer in your hand will look similar to this photo...


This is the 7-way trailer plug end like shown in this photo


Here is another view showing the trailer end of the 7-way connector plug


I think you better get everything back to normal working condition with the trailer cable connected to your truck and make sure all of the safety lighs on the trailer is working normal...

Running out of ways to explain it haha...

I thought thru this before I attempted all connections. There's only two connections that can do anything: power (4) to pins 3 or 6. Neither light lite up. Attempting to connect the other combos will do nothing/hurt anything.

I'm thinking my black power line is open somewhere, either with a fuse or bad connection. I'll chase it down once the weather turns sunny.

I'm glad others are now able to enjoy this.

Hey Roy, thanks for the beautiful diagrams. I bought a cheap flasher and got out the solder gun and soldered a couple 12 volt wires to the flasher and a couple clips on the other end. Just plug it in and it all works fine.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all.

Tis the Season to be Jolly, so am bringing this thread back to life.

Merry Christmas.

Although I was never able to get my lights flashing (and I've not come across any errors with normal driving lights and/or battery disconnects, etc., I've decided that perhaps my trailer plug is looser than others and so I'm not getting a good connection to the flasher unit. As everything works while on the truck connector I'm leaving it alone.

In the CG we're at most the trailers are flashing, so to set ours apart we crank the stereo up real loud. When walking around at night it's so hard to find out trailer, but with the outside speakers blareing it's much easier. We also have a 6500W contractors generator that we use to run the lighs. for some reason we keep bellowing the braker fusse. The generader helps big time.
What puzzles me though is sometimes we come back to the trailer and we have a flat tire on it. I've checked all the valve stems and they seem good. Probably take the trailer to an RV shop and have them check it out.

I would check for knife punctures in the sidewalls. Unfortunately, those can't be fixed. You'll have to buy new tires.
