No running lights ..

Ok .. heres the delema ... all the lights work properly on the A122 Aframe except the running lights when plugged into my tow vehicle, a 2008 Nissan Frontier. The correct relays have been installed in the Frontier, along with the plug and play connectors for the 7 pin outlet. I had the 7 pin tested, and all works well, so my problem lies within the trailer.
Basically this trailer is built on a Rockwood Premier PUP main body, with a few modifications to allow the different roof configuration. Where do I start first ... im at a total loss when looking for this issue.

thanks in advance .. d-mo

I'd start with your connections on the trailer. I had a couple loose ones that I fixed and problems went away. You can also get a voltage meter and pull the light bulbs to see if you are getting voltage at the light.

If all running lights do not work, look at your ground connection on the trailer's frame if voltage is present at any light.
You may need to drop the belly covering to access the ground screw.

I kinda, had the same problem everything worked from Virginia to Oklahoma. In Oklahoma I discovered that my running lights were out. Found my 20 amp fuse was blown in the truck, I put a new one in and they worked for maybe 30 miles and then it blew again. I took it to the dealer they said it was my trk. I took it to FORD and they said it was my trailer. I can only think that it will hit a staple some where and blows the fuse. The dealer said it was impossible to fix or find. I went to Napa and bought a auto resettable fuse and installed that. The dealer has been trying to figure out what to do for the past year. They said they will call me after FR tells them what to do. All my break lights and turning lights work just fine. It is just the running lights aggravating problem. I guess it will never be fixed. I camp on and forget about it. Not saying you should but I kinda gave up.

I know this post is old but FYI, rats chewed through the green running light wire at the the rear of my trailer.
