I have a new K-Z Jag 26js. My TV is a 2006 Nissan Titan without the tow package.
The turn indicators work fine when the trailer is not connected to the truck, but when connected the turn indicators work intermittently. Sometimes they work fine, then all of a sudden the blink once then stop. I took it back to the dealer and they checked everything out. Both the truck & trailer work fine indepently, but there is s glitch when connected. he told me that I probably need a heavy duty flasher. But the owners manual does not mention anything about a heavy duty flasher. I have looked under the dash and I can't pick the flasher out. I know there is one there for I can hear it when the tun indicators are on.

Thnks for any help with this problem,

Rick

You may need a tailight converter. Check auto parts stores for "Hoppy" brand.
Good Luck, Jim

The signal flasher works by heat buildup from the current draw of the bulbs. When it attempts to flash more than just the vehicle bulbs, heat buildup is very quick. This results in the trailer and tow vehicle signals flashing very quickly compared to the vehicle by itself. A heavy duty flasher is exactly that. It is made to require a higher heat buildup to operate the current breaker inside. The combination of both vehicle and trailer lights will flash at the same speed with a heavy duty flasher. As gmachine said, you may need the convertor for the trailer signals to operate properly, it is usually included with a tow package.
