Turn signal stays on towing headlights on

Georgetown 300 when towing a car and head lights on RV the right turn signal comes on and stays on. With head lights off it works fine. There was no wiring touched on the RV when tow was set up. When no tow works fine with lights on.

I imagine that it's the same thing with the parking lights on. You're talking about the turn signal on the towed car, right?

Sounds like either the receptacle or plug connecting the towed car isn't wired correctly. Seems like the wire for the parking lights and right turn signal are switched.

With head lights off all works great. Headlights on and no tow it works fine.

sounds like the ground wire in the towed item is on the wrong pin. I had that happen in a borrowed trailer and everytime I put on the lights the trailer brakes would slam on. the only way to tell is activate all functions from the plug using test leads and a probe
