Crazy Boler Wiring Problem

We FINALLY got a chance to pull the Boler out and hooked up the wiring to test it, and the weirdest thing has happened. When we signal right, the left marker lights blink too (very dimly, but clearly) I think the opposite happens, as well. Also, the right tail light/signal light is dimmer and slower to come on than the left one. We know absolutely jack about wiring. Does anyone have any advice about where we should start looking, or what the problem could be? I hate to see my baby sick! We moved last summer, so we she has not been out since the year before that, but she was just fine when we put her away.

First rule of thumb with alec tric wiring issues is to check ALL you ground wires. Sounds like you may have some wires crossed somewhere in the harness and most likely at the plug connection to the tow vehicle.....

Any one else have other ideas???

I had the same stupid problem, you should check all of the grounds. Actually I just rewired the whole thing.

Definitely a bad ground somewhere. Check all your lighting wiring, and especially all grounded wires for loose connections or any corrosion, particularly any wire terminals that attach to the frame.
