  1. I have been problems with the light of the trailer. Had some module changed. It did not make any difference, still does the same thing. I have bought at least $200.00 of changing the light on the trailer. Took back to my dealer they checked out the harness, claim I do not plug it in tight enough.
    Thanks for the information Diode Circuit. My trailer was doing it on one side also.
    My dealer was or should I say really is not sure what it is or how to fix this.
