running lights

Me again,

When I turn on my running lights, the Argosy lights come on but my trucks back up lights also come on. Any thoughts? Power is correct to the strip.

Thanks, Gary.

The center prong of the 7 way plug is the reverse lights. You must have the running lights in the trailer cross wired to the reverse lights. When the running lights are on it powers the center prong of the plug turning on the reverse lights on the tow vehicle..

Thanks for the quick responses. You were right. We rewired the plug and everything works great now.

Thanks again, Gary.
