I like to turn on the 4-way flashers: single step verification of left turn, right turn, and both brake lights on the trailer. Turn on the parking lights too and you can verify every light on the trailer at one time.

(trailer wiring is really very simple stuff... all the good magic happens up front switching the same bulb between flasher, turn, and stop functions)

This is just the forum that gets all the questions/answers for all types of FR products, not just Berkshire MH's. I'll be more careful next time and not reply to any more "motorhome" comments. Sorry....

Looks like the original question was in the Berkshire sub-forum.

You are free to post wherever you wish I was just offering a possible reason why TT's don't have this feature since I don't own a TT I don't know what they have just that equipment is not the same.

I'm sure you are all dying to hear how I made out. Well, my left front marker/turn-signal had a loose wire in the butt splice. My right mid-ship marker/turn signal was all rusted. I replaced the light assembly.

Back to my original question; have you all checked your turn-signals, including the marker turn-signals?

I do agree with stevejahr with the following clarifications. Putting the 4-way flasher on, will flash all turn signals (including the toad) and verify the brake lights. Putting the running lights on with the 4-ways, will also activate the tail lights, all markers and the front running lights (everything but the head-lights and fog lights). The 4-ways do make checking more easy.

After being notified by a not so friendly driver a couple years ago, I learned after hooking up the trailer just before leaving I do a walk around making sure everything is where its supposed to be. I turn on my tow vehicle running lights and 4 ways, I check everything again. Then I hit the road. I still find a storage hatch that is not fully secured from time to time. I really felt bad when that driver told me at a stop light that I had no trailer lights, made me feel real stupid ( I never plugged them in, meaning no lights or brakes) luckily I had not traveled to far, just a silly mistake that should not have been made.
