I'm in trouble.

At least I hope not. I have a 91 Scamp 16ft, I ordered replacement brake lights(Led) the old lights have red black green and white, the new ones have red black and green Please don't tell me I need the white one because its to short to use again

The white wire shoul d be the ground and on a fiberglass trailer it is very necessary.

Here is a link to the color codes: Trailer Wiring Diagrams | etrailer.com

If you look under the dinette seats and pull up or cut the rat fur where you feel the lump from the wires, you can splice in a longer wire.

Scamp uses the Bargman wiring color code. It should be in your owners manual or can be found here.

If you ordered your lights from Chuck he usually gives the color code for his LED lights on the invoice or just send him an E-mail.

Just splicing on another piece of wire probably will do it.

Ok, I figured out the green wire is the running lights, so since the new lights didn't have a green wire I now have break and turn signals, no tail/running lights...lol

I don't run at night so shouldn't be a problem till I can order new lights.

Now the next problem is the rear water fill tube cover, you cant move the holding tank without undoing all the fittings, and its glued in from the outside, I have most of it chipped out but there's still about 1/4 in in there I have to work on tomorrow. Then it's off to Fastenall for washers and caps, Scamp didn't send enough, or I didn't order enough.
