Adapter for led trailer lights may need to be added to your RV in order to make the lighting system work. When the original lights for this trailer stop working, you need to change them to an adapter to solve this problem. Here’s how to do it.
Adapter For LED Trailer Lights
Most of these problems begin with a loose connection between the led lights and the RV-specific truck connector. It doesn’t have anything to do with whether the lights are LED or not. The solenoid and back-up bulbs for both the turn signals and brake lights operate off the same center terminal on the truck connector bus. It may be that your truck connector on the trailer is just not compatible with your RV 7 connector on the rear of the RV.
The first thing to try is to unplug the accessory. Normally the truck connector will remain in the same place, but you may need to slightly rotate it to clear the socket from either side plant trailer. If that did not work, you can try removing the wires. Sometimes the wires are very snugly wrapped around the socket, so it may not be possible to pull them all out by hand. In that case, the next step would be to find a soldering iron and heat the wiring insulation off of the bulb.
Once you’ve done that, you can insert the new lamp into the outlet on your vehicle. You need to make sure that the bulb is secure, because if it isn’t the wires won’t attach and you will be left with a dangling wire. If the fixture is too loose then you’ll need to use the bad ground wire to connect the other end.
Test the light to see if it works fine. If it does not work right away, remove it and try again. This can be done using the same type of light that the RV has. Again, if this doesn’t work, try the wire connection from the factory and hook up the leds there.
Finally, if those steps didn’t work and you still have the dangling wire, there is one more thing that you can try. Many vehicles come with a crimp that goes into the hole in the back of the truck. With a screwdriver, try inserting the back of the light and making a connection with the crimp.
It should be tight enough that the LED won’t be able to bend or slide through the hole, but it shouldn’t be tight enough that the cable won’t be able to come out. With the right adapter for led lights, this last step should be able to get your truck back on the road and lights working!
