Rear lights

Recommended Posts

Any idea why my rear lights are on? Disconnected from vehicle; connected to 30 amp at campground. Running lights and all other exterior lights are off....

Mine does the same thing when water gets in the tow connection. I now have a cap I put on it and does not happen anymore.

We have had a problem in the past with our trailer lights coming on.  We found the problem to be moisture in the 7 pin plug that connects to tow vehicle.

Ours does it under the same condition if water gets in the connector plug.  Shake the water out and lights extinguish.

George didn’t know there were caps for 7 pin connector. Where did you get one ?

 

Amazon or Camping World.

This is the cheap cap I use. I need to repaint it because I don't like the blue.

Can’t you just hang the plug vertically so water can't get in? It is also necessary to seal the entry into the plug housing, using silicone sealer. Water goes in that opening too.

 

That is what I do and I have never had that problem, but maybe I have been lucky and it just hasn’t happened yet.

 

Plus I live in a dry climate.

We thought that would be the answer too but, at least in the subtropics, the lights still came on.
