Taillight Converter for 1998 Honda Goldwing Towing Trailer with Combined Stop/Turn Lighting


I have installed 2 different converters for my trailer I have all functions on input side but do not have any turnsignals on output but I have both brake lights on the output have used a 2 to 3 and a 4 to 3 converter


Expert Reply:

Since motorcycle lighting has separate brake, tail and turn signal lights, but trailers combine the stop/turn signals onto a common circuit for each side of the trailer you need a converter that can take in the separate brake light signal and merge it with the turn signals for the trailer.

The Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732 will take in the separate stop and turn signals from your Gold Wing and combine them on the output side, on the green wire for trailer right-hand stop/turn and the yellow wire for trailer left-hand stop/turn. The bike's taillight wiring bypasses this converter since the trailer wiring already has a separate circuit for that function, typically carried on a brown wire.

A video for this item is included along with a helpful article that covers all types of trailer wiring.

A circuit tester like # PTW2993 makes it easier to correctly identify the wire carrying any given signal.
