Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring When Plugged In Reverse Lights on Trailer Come On


When I plug in truck camper and turn on truck lights the backup lights come on


Expert Reply:

That means you have a short between the reverse light circuit of your trailer wiring and the running light circuit. On a 7-way the pin locations for these circuits are 1:00 for the running light (on the vehicle side) and center pin for the reverse light circuit. Check over the connectors and wiring looking for any loose wiring or corrosion and fix as needed.

I attached a link to a page that has trailer wiring diagrams for you to check out as well.
