Fixing things is easy, once you know whats wrong!
So, I've got a utility trailer I let the registration lapse on. Got it registered this week and need to use it this weekend.
Hooked it up to the truck to make sure the lights worked and everything was in good shape.
Yep, Lights just 'barely' worked. Cleaned the connectors, no luck. Checked the bulbs, no luck.
Finally broke out the multimeter and checked. Only getting 5 volts to the lights. Truck connector checks out good. Connect on the trailer checks out good.
Where the heck is this thing grounded? Found a bolt on the frame with 12 volts, bolt right next to it only 5.
Took the bolt off, used a dremel to remove some paint, hooked it back up. 12 volts everywhere.
I wish I had started by looking for where the ground wire was connected to the trailer.
Everything is good now and ready to roll!
