Is It Okay if Roadmaster NightHawk Tow Bar Light Strip is Partially Lit Up


I recently hooked up our 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to our Roadmaster Nighthawk tow bar to take it on the first test run. The wiring was done by a local shop. When hooked up all lights worked fine, however when we got home and unhooked the Jeep the Rugged Ridge LED tail light remained dimly lit when the vehicle was turned off. After a while only two of the small led were lit on each side but they have not gone out after some hours. This problem has only occurred after we hooked to the motorhome. The tail lights do have a resistor. Can you help me with a solution to this problem?

So LED diodes do not take much amperage at all to activate. If there's any circuit bleed through on the circuit the LED will partially light up. This is why the lights of the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain # RM-676 are activating partially. It won't harm anything for it to do this, but if you want it to go away easiest solution is to unplug the tow bar lighting.
