When I hook up my WW toy hauler to my f250 my WW sometimes shows "no trailer connected". it happens more than 50% of the time and I also notice that I have no turn or brake lights on my right side of my trailer.

To add to my WW issues, when I turn a particular light on my interior light panel mytrucks reverse lights come on.

Has anyone experienced these issues? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd start by checking the trailer plug and truck plug socket for burnt/melted/bad connections. And/Or the trailer harness for a short/open.

What do you mean by short/open? Please excuse my rookie questions.

Just look over the Harness for cuts(possible open)or spots that are worn thru allowing 2 wires to touch(short).

I'd pay particular attention to the Harness plug looking in it carefully for melted bad connectors.

Just some easy stuff to check first, and a common area for problems.

WW's have terrible brake wiring. Best option is to run all new from the connector back.

The reverse lights are also connected to the rear patio lights. There is no relay though, so if your truck doesn't have a relay (Fords do, other's don't) the patio switch will backfeed to the truck.

It could be a dirty connection. Try some WD-40 or some LUBE.

My 2006 CL4005 had all of these issues, and at the time I had a 2005 Ford F-350.. I never could correct the issue win the trucks reverse lights coming on, and it didn't happen all the time. The trailer brake controller flashing ended up being grease on one of the brake magnets that shorted out the connection. The rear lights/turn signal was a frayed wire that had been pinched when the suspension ran into the wire bundle that was never attached correctly.

I just crawled under and inspected all wires were good to go. I inspected the rubber grommets on the axle that the wires were run through and those were fine as well.

I also confirmed that all of my trailer lights are working except left blinker and my truck 2009 f250 sees no trailer attached. Therefore I cannot utilize my trailer brakes or controller (stock controller). Could I have grease on the magnets as mentioned above and what do I need to do to check that?

Thanks guys.
