Question Switch for running lights on BOLER 17'

Just wondering if anyone has instructions on how I can switch my running lights on, on my 17' Boler, when the trailer is disconnected from the tow vehicle using the on board battery or converter?

If you have a charging circuit from your TV then just use a wire jumper from that connector to the running light connector on the plug from the trailer.

Just connecting the terminals at position 1 and 11 o clock on your umbilical cord will do it.
I suggest you use an automotive in-line fuse holder....otherwise, there won't be any fuse protection on the circuit.
(under "normal" circumstances, the lights are fuse-protected by the tow vehicles fuses.).

Thanks! Solution worked

Thanks to Bill, Joe and Brian. I tried the jumper on the plug and it worked fine. I really just wanted it to add to the festive look (of an already pretty festive look) of the trailer while parked on certain occasions. Don't think This trailer charges the battery from the converter so I don't think I'll be using this feature if I'm on battery power alone.

Another thing you can do is put a two prong blinker for a car turn signal in the plug and the lights will blink.

The flashCube does the same thing.
