Took apart the two ends to find the ground was loose on one. Fixed the ground and plugged in to MH and Toad and right turn made both tail lights flash!

This was late last night, rain and darkness set in so I moved inside. Using a 18 volt battery from my drill I fashioned a continuity test and found two wires were connected to wrong terminals on opposite ends. Humm! So now I'm wondering was that done on purpose to match how the toad was wired.

Changed the wires to how they should be and read up on toad wiring this morning before stepping outside just in case I have to redo the toad.

Plugged in cord, everything works correctly. Now how did those wires get crossed? I can understand that the ground might have rattled loose, but the wiring changed is different.

Steve after seeing your bill for a lightbulb I couldn't even bring myself to laugh. Did I ever tell you how much I love RVing! Lol
I think bats were involved...

Thanks Gary, we have done the 101 with the bypass through SF in a 40' fifth wheel and the 40' MH towing. Went over the GG bridge both times. No problem. I just put the turn signal on and start moving over, hee hee!

We will be staying at the Petaluma Coast Guard Training Center, 12th through 15th - leave 16th.

Sweet! So glad she was on this side of the pond and close enough for the visit Dave! Sometimes the rainbow is brighter than others. This is a very bright day!

It is another scorcher here in Vegas. Been napping this afternoon. Looks like it's been quiet here too...
