Agree check the bulb. however you said the running light is working. But that doesn't tell you the brake light is working. The brake light, and the turn signal light is the same bulb. has 2 filaments in one bulb.


tail light is one filament. Brake and turn is the other.

OP: Did you check for fuse in the truck? Each function has a separate fuse.

Do yourself a favor. Run new wires and change your camper lights to LED fixtures. The total bill if you do it yourself can be as little as $60. I personally solder all of my connections and use heat shrink tubing to seal everything up.

Turns out it was broken wire at a plug that was about 3 feet from the 4 pin connector. It was wrapped in electrical tape so previous owner must have done a band-aid fix. Bought a new plug and everything is working. Thanks for all the help!!

Glad you got it fixed. And thanks for coming back with an update. I'm sure I'm not the only one who periodically checks threads he's made suggestions on to see the outcome. [emoticon]
