first unplug, blow on both connections and then plug back in, this fixed my 1 turn signal not working. Next check bulbs, if still out then you need to check the output from the TV, if that is good, check the output at the light.

Make sure you have your connector pushed up into the outlet firmly. Do your brake lights and marker lights work?

Spray both sides of connector with wd 40. This will help make contact. I always apply die-electric grease to both ends to eliminate corrosion and make a better contact. Available at most auto stores.

If the turn signals on the tow vehicle are not working replace the fuse in truck. If TV signals working then probably bad connection at plug. Many times lights not working are due to a bad ground connection at light.

Check the fuse box under the hood. There is a fuse for the right side and the left side is these are no in than you will not have turn signals. The dealer is suppose to make shure thse are pluged in on their PDI bu a lot of them miss them

Exactly. No light at tow vehicle check fuse at TV. Lights at TV but not on trailer check ground connection then fuse at trailer. I have found on other types of trailers that ground was the culprit.

We are having a similar problem with our 2011 Zinger 19ft. The brake lights and turn signals do not work.

When we open the truck door or turn on the headlights to the truck, the taillights on the camper come on. However, the lights do not work when braking or using the turn signal.

The turn signals works fine on the truck. And we know the bulbs aren't burned out because they come on when the TV headlights are on.

Seems to me some part of the connection is working, but it's not working completely.

We store our trailer at a U-Haul facility and while there someone stole the spare tire. Is there something the could have stolen or broken free during this process that would contribute to this problem?

Thanks for your help.
