Turn Signal

The turn signals and tail lights on the MH work fine, by itself

But i have a problem with the connection to trailer/toad

The 6 pin cord shows that all the three wires (Brown, Green and Yellow)
are shorted to the ground (white). So the turn signals in my car (separate wiring than the car's) is not working

I traced this back to the short

I must have blown something somewhere....

The cord itself is fine - i take it out and no pins are shorted to each other
There is continuity on all 6 wires, end to end

Where do i start looking in the MH to tackle this?

Disassemble the MH plug and inspect the wiring. Often a stray strand of wire is not inserted into its socket. This one strand of wire can cause what you describe. While the plug is apart check every wire for continuity to ground, even ground wire to MH frame. A poor ground is the most often cause of 12V issues.
