Color Coding

I'm looking for the wiring identification coding for my 5th wheel Flagstaff it has a seven pin TT to TV. Trying to trace down a clearance/running lights problem. I'm not ruling out a potential ground problem but need a start. I do have a TV tester (cheep), it shows that power is avail. I don't have clearance lights most of the time and stopping to unplug and re plug over and over is worthless. However they will come on while driving and sometimes when hooking up they will come on. Help!!!

I would start with the plug. Open it and make sure all screws are tight against the wires and have good, clean connections. Then I would check the plug connection on both TV and TT for corrosion or anything that may be obstructing the connection.

If all the lights are affected, brake and turn, check the ground wire.

Cheap check... Booster cable frame to frame between.

X2...If its not corrosion at the connectors and you have a molded plug check the wire connection where the cable at the other end (meaning there may be a junction box under the front of the trailer where the cable connects to the trailer wiring). It might be a bad connection at that point.
