We installed one of the Curt receiver hitches and its supposedly Subaru appropriate wiring harness in our 2010 Forester.
Then we replaced our old trailer lights
with all LED Tail/brake/signal and clearance lights
. Now we find that the trailer tail lights
glow dimly whenever the trailer is plugged into the car.
All the time. Whether the car is running or the lights
are on or off and even when the key is removed.
As long as the trailer is coupled to the car the LEDs glow. To the tune of 0.1 Amps thru each tail light
wire and 0.2 amps thru each brake light
. Or 14 Amp hours per day.
Obviously, we would not be wanting to leave the trailer coupled while camping when it is like this!
Our question is :
Has anyone else had this happen?
What did you do?
Thanks for any help
