tail and clearance lights always on??
Over the last couple of days I have done some major electical work on my 74 Tradewind Land Yacht. Now my tail and clearance lights remain illuminated even with the two vehicle detached from the trailer. The only way to get them to go off is to disconnect the battery cables. What gives???
The work I have done recently is as follows:
Replace all of the clearance lights with new ones. The old and replacement lights have one lead (hot) and the fixtures are grounded to the trailer skin.
rewired the 7-lead cable with new ends. In order to install the new 7-pin connector on the trailer end I had to do the connections on the front of the trailer.
BTW, when the trailer battery is connected and the trailer 7-pin cable is connected to my tow vehicle, everything (brakes lights, tail lights, clearance lights, and back up lights) work properly.
Any ideas where I should look to keep my running lights from burning when the trailer battery is connected will be appreciated.
