Re: Trailer light genius needed

A trailer light tester is a nice thing to have. A voltmeter is pretty essential too, but the tester is better to verify the lights since the voltage jumps up and down. A tester is a great tool to have since converters themselves can go bad when hooked up to bad trailer wiring so it's nice to eliminate that first.

But at least one of the problems is on the trailer side. It sounds like at the least you have the turn signal and taillight wires mixed.
