How do I trouble shoot a wiring problem with my trailer?

The first step is to isolate whether the problem is the tow vehicle or trailer.  This can be done by hooking a different tow vehicle to the trailer and checking the operation of the lights. If the problem still exists, the issue is the trailer. It is best to inspect the plug first as problems can originate here due to the wires being strained in the plug. To determine if a light module is bad, exchange it with the opposite side of the trailer and observe if the same light does or does not work.
