Hello from Canada

Hello. I just bought my first pop-up tent trailer. Second hand, 2009 Palomino Pony.

I'm hoping this site is the correct place for me to come for help and advice.

Being as new as I am I really have very little idea how to operate the trailer.

I have had a class iii hitch and electric brake connector installed. I have checked all the running and brake lights and everything is good.

My first issue is I cant get the interior lights to come on.

Enough for now. Just wanted to make sure I'm in the right place and letting you know my level of inexperience.

Thanks ...george

Hi and Welcome to FRF.
Suggest that you ask your popup-specific questions in the Tent Camper and Popup section of the Forum.

Welcome from Wisconsin. Popups usually have a kill switch located somewhere to kill the power to ceiling lights when the tenting is folded in and the roof is down. If yours has a tilt up kitchen area it could be behind there and might be stuck. On our 2004 Fleetwood high wall popup the switch was located so when the rear bed was slid in it would cut power to ceiling lights.

yep, popups have a kill switch, usually plunger type, to disconnect power to the interior lights. on both my two popups, it was a white plunger switch that was pushed down when i flipped up the sink cabinet. that activated power to the lights. it's a safety precaution in case an owner doesn't turn the lights off, when lowering the roof down.
