Uh oh. You're going to be on the ignore list now too...

Now, let's talk facts. We all know it was Couch's, not FR, that messed up the wiring on purpose.

There is nothing wrong with the brochure stating that the flood lights are activated with the reverse lights. Look in the junction box where your Bergman cord connection is made. There should be two yellow wires in if. Make sure they are connected. Check all grounds as well.

He knows Bob. He's cracking wise because northstar has been complaining about his trailer not matching the brochure/FR website specs forever... I was also making a funny by blaming Couch's as he complains about them even more than about FR. Many of us are just tired of hearing it so making a joke out if it adds a bit of levity.

My 2015 lights are back up activated when I shift into reverse lights come on. I put new mattress on my bed dropped it down to 2nd set of holes works great.

Thanks , no problem with the tv or wiring , just so you know kulas . i've checked them with the switch but was told they did not come on with reverse by the DEALER . i will check here in a day or two when i hook up to head to Co . so i guess the dealers just continue to make up stuff , not wanting to get into a dealer bashing session , just asking a question or two if that's ok , some people just don't care if their lied to

Oh, ok. NS: I was under the impression that you were hooked up to your rig, put 'er in reverse, and the lights didn't come on. But it sounds like you're going by what the dealer said (which we all know can be total crap, Gospel, or anything in between.) I bet if you hook up and check this feature, it works.

In fairness, a lot of dealer salespeople don't know jack spit. For instance, I originally ordered my 30HFS-5 with a gray exterior, and I paid an extra premium for that. But when it arrived at the dealer, it was white. I was told by my sales guy, "They stopped making it in gray for the 2015 model year." (I had ordered it in March of 2014, so we were going off 2014 specs and thought I'd be getting a '14, but it took them so long to make it that it came through as a 2015.) Ok, I say, I'm SOL. Then 2 months later I go to Hershey and see most of the 2015 XLR line on display there in gray. Needless to say I was less than thrilled. I don't like being lied to. If you f$*#ed up, admit you f$*#ed up. I think there's just some defective gene in salespeople that requires them to lie periodically. Or at least talk out their butthole.
