I would check voltage at "PARK IN" for the MB signal. If you get voltage there, then make sure all fuses are good on the controller. If there is no input voltage, then I would go to the plug on drivers side, above spare tire, toward rear of vehicle. I have added a pitcure of our wiring diagram of the harness. I would be leaning more towards a short somewhere in the output circuitry though. If the "RUNNING LIGHTS" shows a voltage of or around 1-1.5, instead of 12+, there is a short in the line. I can also send this as a pdf if you would like to pm me your email.

I just got to a printer and the image is not clear, is there somewhere I can download the original pdf file of the controller?
The "Park IN" voltage you mention, is that on the board? I have 12 volts at the two lugs coming into the controller, just got nothing out where the running lights plug attaches. I'm assuming the plug itself is the output to the trailer wiring.

send pdf to peterfinurke@gmail.com
Is "Park IN" on the controller? I got under my MH & found plugs on right & left sides that are coded brown, look like running light outputs.
Do you know where the connection from MB to FR would be? Which of the 3 plugs on the controller is input from MB, i.e. top, left, right?
thanks Peter

The connection points for most of the wiring from MB to FR is in 2 plugs mounted on the crossmember behind the spare tire.

Still having problems just got back from Oregon Star Party and could only drive in the daytime...
I REALLY get the feeling this is a loose ground wire, the lights will come on now and then but not for long and do not blow any fuses
Now back... I'm going under to have a look

Can someone post the PDF file on the controller. I have checked & cleaned the 2 plugs over the spare tire, but now I need some guidance in tracing voltage.
Thanks Peter

I got the first attachment which was not a PDF file & when I tried zooming in, it was too blurry to read the text.
No PDF received, I am on the road, so that may be a problem.
Thanks Peter
