It’s always somethin’. But we do love old trailers, don’t we! Everything’s been just ducky and I take off to go to the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA last weekend and the tail light LED’s are messed up! They are working, but not like they are supposed to. So I’ve come to seek the wisdom of the Forum.
Here’s what’s goin’ on:
In summary, not all the individual tail light LED’s are on.
In detail, this is what happened when connected to the tow vehicle;
Emergency Flasher: L 4 lites off at 11 o’clock, R 4 lites off at 9 o’clock
Running Lights: same as above
Running Lights w/ Left Turn signal: L same as above, R all lites on
Running Lights w/ Right Turn signal: L same as above, R all lites on
Brake Lights only: L 8 lites off at 12 o’clock, R 4 lites off at 9 o’clock
Running Lights w/ Brake Lights: L 12 lites off at 10-12 o’clock, R 6 lites off at 9 o’clock and 4 lites off at 1 o’clock !
Second test Brake Lights only: L 16 lites off at 9-3 o’clock, R 12 lites off at 12-3 o’clock!
While working the brake lights, I’m hearing a humming wine !? I found the noise at the left electric brake drum with the brake lights on.
So maybe, the drum brake is shot and effecting the tail lights? Or are the defunct LED’s effecting the brake ?
