Did you replace your bulbs with LED ones? This could be your problem...

You can install a truck or electronic flasher, but you might still overload your multifunction switch. [turn signal switch]

Why didn't we have this problem with our other TV, which was a 2000 1 ton van? It didn't have a wiring package either, and Frank wired it just as he did this one.

The boss just told me that the little utility trailer does the same thing; so clearly it is not a problem with the AS, it has to be something with the TV........

(He could have told me that in the beginning!)

Too little data

Based on what both what little I know about Fords, and what little detail you have shared about your new TV, I'd say Frank did not wire it the way Ford intended a towed load's electricals to be wired.

Personally, I'm surprised there are no comments from Ford weanies monitoring this thread who own late model tow vehicles they wired themselves.

Ultimately, I think the presence of LEDs is ultimately going to figure into this at one point. RLuhr had a problem with his TV in the vein of this thought.

Finally, WTH is Frank?

Modern technology, plus, we gotta have something to talk about.
