'66 Caravel

The rear outside lights do not work. The jeep dealership said that it is because the trailer is 6v and it is hooked up to my 12v Jeep Grand 2006 Cherokee????? And that the trailer is a fire hazzard because it is not grounded. I went to the dealership to get the harness and pod for the brakes put in and am on the way to pick it up.

Don't walk, but RUN away from that dealership.

Your trailer is all 12 volts DC, unless someone modified it.

Obviously, the dealer is mis-informing you.

Take the trailer to an RV dealer.

Simple wiring hookup will take care of the lights.

Yes, your Jeep dealer does not know what he is talking about. As Andy said, go somewhere else.
