I started getting my Scamp
16' Deluxe ready for the summer and have a couple of electrical
issues I need to solve.
1. At the end of last towing season my driver's side turn signal and tail light
were not working. I've checked all my ground wires starting with the brake controller, trailer plug and at the tail light
fixture. Now the tail light
works but the blinker doesn't. Any other suggestions? (yes I did change the bulbs)
2. I am replacing my interior 12v light bulbs with LED's. When I started this
project I discovered that I had no 12v power at all. I thought I must have left something on so I plugged into shore power to charge back up. After an over night charge still no power. The 12v lights
and pump work when the trailer is on shore power. What is the next things I should look at?
The good news is that during my research on these problems I discovered that whoever wired the trailer towing plug had just spliced one on to the end of the wire. At first I thought this might very well be my problem with the tail light. I properly connected a new plug and I'm sure that fix will save me some future headaches that the spliced wires would have caused.
Thanks for your help!
