I read this thread with interest. It is an example of the rules:

Write everything down

Mark it

Don't ever trust to memory

Measure twice before cutting once.

Working with electrical circuits for a local aircraft company, I learned that you never trust anyone else's work, always double check. Electrical things go together easily, it is when you turn the current on that you discover you have problems. "Houston, we have a problem." Check again.

I was told when I took delivery of my trailer, to not worry when stopping for an hour or two, but for parking overnight, always unplug the trailer or it will draw the tug battery down.

As far as dragging the plug end, I have two systems:

1 - I physically attach the plug to the trailer

2 - My Brake controller will not show "c" if the trailer is not hooked up.

Happy Trails

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
