Here is a thread with the same question: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f447...ghts-7469.html

Also, several members use this technique to light their trailers up while camping.

Nice thread and very helpful for lighting when camped in the park. Not sure about the statement concerning walking around to check lights. The '73 has fiber optic device for the rear brakes and blinkers. No need to walk around if these have been properly inspected for operability.

I read the post last night but I'm not capable of using my TV, the trailer is completely gutted, can I just take a 12V battery in the trailer.

You could take a 12 volt battery, connect the negative post to the frame of the trailer and connect the positive to the running light line in the TV connector. That would test the lights as well.
