Driving at night, should there be rear lights lit on the trailer?

Yes!

 

Do the turn signals work on the trailer?

Power for all lights comes through the 7-pin connector - is it tight? - are your tow vehicle lights on? Do the brake lights work properly....

The rear lights and side lights should be lit anytime you have your headlights turned on. Brake lights obviously when you have your foot on the break.

As told to me by LHC, Last check I do is turn on headlights and turn flashers on. Makes it easy to see if all filaments are lit. Then I turn flashers off but always drive with headlights on.

Jim&Clare and Librarianocnj,

 

Thanks. Our Casita suffered a merciless beating on March 17, 2016 in a record hailstorm (stones as big as tennis balls).  All plastic fixtures on the exterior were shattered. We had to cancel our plans for the Bluebonnet. I am taking it to LHC this coming week to be repaired. I’ll be sure to be off the road when it is dark and hope I don’t get a ticket as I drive down to Yantis.. The AC and the fridge still work, as do all interior lights, but the exterior is a disaster.  

 

We plan to be at the Bluebonnet this year hopefully.

Wow!  Bet you are glad you don't have an Airstream.

 

Larry will fix you up.

See you at Bluebonnet!

You still need your brake lights and turn signals working on the trailer in the daytime.
