"After much trouble-shooting (with a friend) he tried turning the screw in the light covers (where the ground is connected) and both of them lit up when the screw was wiggled.)"

Bobbie, take that screw your friend wiggled to get the lights to work, make it and corresponding connection nice and shiny with some sandpaper. Do the bulb and socket also as long as your in there. I personally coat all electrical connections with die-electric grease before reassembly

Thanks, I've done that before but maybe the grease would keep things working longer. The trailer does spend half the year parked on Puget Sound so gets a lot of salt air (though not much rain this summer.)

I automatically run new wires, and install led taillights with marine adhesive heatshrink on all connections as soon as I buy a trailer.

After that, they work for years. In some places of the scamp where they had scotch locks (evil things), I had to cut out over a foot of wire to find clean, I corroded wire, and that was inside the trailer.
