UGH. That's all I've got to say now. Hoping the wiring is easy to trace out under the rig. Haven't crawled around under there yet.

Just wanted to say the problem has been solved.
After last night I suggested we probe each light outside and measure the voltage coming to it to see if there is a problem. My stubborn husband insisted we go have it looked we did...and...the first thing they did was probe each light to measure voltage.

Long story short - it was the upper 3 lights on the back center of the rig. the guy took the fixtures off and the lights just fell out (little or no wiring attached). In looking at the wiring, it was the original manufacturers wiring, but very very short. We're assuming that day on the assembly line they were running short on wire or cut ours too short, wired one light, then had to "pull" it to get to the other side thus disconnecting or making the connection on the ones in the middle very shoddy. Over the past couple years and vibration they finally came off.
Problem is now fixed and we are good to go!

Glad to hear. Also surprised you could get it looked at so quickly. Most people have to wait days or weeks. Did you take it to a dealer?

Rockfordroo - we have a small mom and pop company around here that does hitches, brake systems, "toys" for trailers and campers. Not a dealer.
Small hole in the wall, but fantastic hard working knowledgeable guys working there. The kid knew exactly what he was doing and had it troubleshot and fixed within 45 minutes. We told him we'd be using them from now on! (same company that installed my electric brake)

My husband called them yesterday when they opened and he said bring it on down.

Thank you very much for coming back and letting us know what it was and how you got it fixed. And you learned something about electrical in the deal!

Also, thanks for letting us know about the fantastic service you got for the local shop.
I think you should post the name of the business here so that people can use them if they're in the area.

You could also write a review of them in the reviews section.

Not a bad idea!

I'm from Western Mass and the company that helped us out is Cap and Hitch in W. Springfield. We've had 2 experiences with them and both have been fast, thorough, polite, and they've gone way out of their way.
Great Staff and lots of experience.

They will be the first people I contact going forward for any questions or issues!
