Question Tow vehicle light issues

I have a 2009 Allegro open road and a 2013 Jeep Wrangler. I wired the Jeep using the bulb and socket option. I have verified the wiring on the Jeep by powering each pin on the 6 pin socket mounted on the front of the jeep. All turn, brake, and running lights respond correctly. However, when I hook up the 7 pin to six pin pigtail from the RV, I can only get running lights on Jeep and nothing else. First question, does the jeep need to be completely hooked up to the RV in order to satisfy a grounding issue in order to get the Jeep lights to operate correctly? If not I am looking for suggestions or advice on where to start troubleshooting. It appears that there is a pin assignment issue on the RV. I am using all the parts supplied by Blue Ox. Nothing homemade. Thank you.

The lighting system you are using is the same as I am using on my Ford Ranger. That is the use of a separate bulb installed in the tail lights of the toad. A ground is required and I did go through the same issue you had until I actually wired in a ground through the plug. Problem Solved!

I also picked up a 4 to 3 wire converter from one of the auto supply stores for about $15 to allow the turn signals, brake lights, and tail lights to work correctly.

Thank you for the reply. You have to excuse me but I am a little electrically challenged. How did you run the ground through the plug and where did you use the 4 to 3 converter?
