Right Side Tail Lights Dim Using Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs
Right turn signal with lights on will not operate. Right turn signal on its own operates dimly but so does the left. The right brake light does not come on when brakes are pressed. I have rechecked the wiring and ground and am perplexed. Wondering if it could be the bulb socket. Please help !!!! The left side light works fine in all modes.

In regards to the Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs part # RM-155, I know you said you checked the grounds but the issue you are having points me in that direction. Therefore, I recommend you ground each light base to a new bare metal surface. If this does not fix your issue then inspect the filament inside the bulbs as well. Finally, if all is good here then test for voltage at the wires just before the bulbs as less than 12 volts would indicate you have a wiring issue.
The 1157 Incandescent Bulb part # 30-90-157 would work as a replacement and will be good to have on hand.
