Left Turn Signal

Just picked up a used 2010 WPT30WR, and the left turn signal isn't working. I opened the conduit box under the tongue, and the yellow wire from the hitch plug is capped off and not hooked up to anything. There are also no disconnected wires coming from the trailer side that I could find. Does anyone know what color the left turn signal wire is on the trailer side?

The colors may be unreliable.

Here is the pin out for the connector and what I use to keep em clean.

Did you try a new bulb? Sometimes you have to plug and unplug the trailer connector from the TV connector a few times to get a good connection. If that doesn't fix it I would use a multimeter to check the connection on the TV for power. If it's good then check bulb socket on the trailer for power.

I use a dental pick to clean up the contacts, then coat them with "electrolytic" grease for protection from moisture. Making sure all that is good...then on to the multi meter! Your wiring is most likely fine, look for the obvious...be the bulb! lol

Just an FYI. My camper's tailgate light bulbs are corroded into the sockets and can't be removed without breaking them. They still work, but I carry the replacement tail light assemblies in the camper for when they don't.

This is a good point. Does the left parking light work with the lights on?
The same truck fuse works both the left turn signal and the left tail/parking light.

on newer trucks and his may fall into that category. the trailer stop turn tail fuses are separate from tv. so if theres a short in the tt the tv still works ok .
