Ah yes, thanks for the replies. It makes sense that it would be the main supply wire now that I know each one should have its own local ground. I will check it out, starting at the front. Thanks for your help!!

Hey guys this was an old post but I thought this might help. I just ran into a problem with my Forest River 292BHDS bumper pull camper. I ran across this thread in my search and while it was not the answer to my problem I thought I would share what I found.

I had an issue where my running lights would not work. Turn signals and break lights worked but no running. I read all these threads, followed advice and found this; I checked the truck plug and fuse as suggested, both fuses good. The plug would kick power to my tester with turn and brake, but running would not turn light on tester. Both fuses in the truck were good. I applied 12v power to the camper directly with a battery and leads, I could make the turn and breaks light up but when I plugged the leads in the running light terminal, no luck. I then traced the wires to identify what color went where which brings me to this post, many images on google show different color wires for terminal locations. I found that my male plug on the truck and female plug on the truck most have shorted out. I can apply power to the green wire on my camper and lights turn on, but 6" away the plug will not provide power.....The problem was the plug not the fuse... So here is the color code I found;

2015 FOREST RIVER 292BHDS BUMPER PULL

WHITE- trailer brakes
BLACK- power
RED- right turn
BROWN- left turn
YELLOW- reverse light (capped off in junction box attached to frame under driver side near propane tanks)
GREEN- running lights
BLUE- ground

Hope this helps someone in the future!!

And yet your wires are still incorrect.

Hi,

I had that happen once, and discovered that a "critter" had taken up lodging in my underbelly and decided to snack on my wiring.

Hope your solution is easier to find than mine was.

FWIW.

Be sure to get back to the forum so that we may all learn from your experience what caused the problem and where to look
