Marker lights not working , 2011 slingshot

I purchased my 2011 Slingshot about 2 years ago . This spring when I took my cover off and took it on the road in early May, I noticed that several marker lights are not on. Tested all the fuses in the SUV and in the camper and didnít find any problems there. It is even more strange because one or 2 marker lights occasionally are on at times then off at other times. Clearly , it seems to me like there is a problem with the wires powering those lights. The turn signals and breaking lights in the trailer work fine. There seems to be no other electrical issues inside the trailer. Please help. Where do I start, how do I access the wiring ?

Probably a poor connection at the individual lights. Clean the bulb connections first then check the ground connection at each light. Wiggling the bulb in the socket may do it.

I would start with checking the bulbs as they sometimes get corrosion on them causing poor contact. Just pull the lens and check the bulb. If no light then try a different bulb.

There are special LED bulbs that last the lifetime of the camper. They are permanently connected to the wires supplying the electricity
