Running light broken off - trip coming

Hi, I was careless backing the trailer into the storage unit and broke off a running light next to the trailer door (2015 27FB). We leave in 3 days for a 2 1/2 week trip to Yellowstone. I am worried that the broken wire might blow a fuse or worse when the lights are turned on.

Any suggestions?

It appears that the power lead is outside the trailer. You could for a temporary measure put a wire nut on it to protect it from shorting out. I would also tape the two wires together so they don't pull back inside the shell.
It would not be hard to find a replacement and install it. It is not a difficult job.

You can pick up replacement at almost any auto, rv parts store or even truck stops.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Thanks for the replies, if the white is positive then I will try covering it and see what happens when I turn the lights on. The ground wire is actually broken inside the trailer so I am not sure what the long term fix will be. we may be going to Ohio this fall!

Keep in mind the legality or illegality of not having all the required running lights working.
