Running Lights

I wish there was a way to light up those beautiful Running Lights that are on our TH when camped! They showcase the unit so beautifully!

Take a piece of heavy gauge solid copper wire and jump pins 3-4 - 3 is running lights, 4 is 12 volt - this will turn the lights on.

Some will take a flasher unit and put it in between pins 3 and 4 and flash them all too.

Using a jumper wire, connect the Tail/Running Light(green) socket to the Battery Charge (black) socket.

I would suggest using a fuse as the jumper instead of just a piece of wire. A bit of insurance in case you have a mishap. One like is used in the DC circuits of the trailer would do it, maybe 10A.
