I just got a Bambi 19' and am trying to wire up the trailer hitch. I followed the manual but was concerned about one thing. The +/- 12 volt
pins on the trailer are hot. I wired my tow vehicle to the same pins. So it is hot at the tow vehicle connector. My question is why is the trailer hitch hot and do I really need the tow vehicle connector to be hot too?
I am a bit concerned about plugging two hot connectors together.
