Emergency Flasher Wiring for Trailer

Hello All:

Thanks to information on this forum I was able to find the wiring information to put a brake control in my 2005 Knight, thanks. I also found that either the factory or the original owner had the lights wired to the trailer plug without a converter (4 to 2 light ) so the trailer only had signals but no brake lights, that is now corrected.

So here is my last problem, when I turn on the emergency flashers, it does not flash the lights on the trailer. The emergency flashers appear to be on a totally separate circuit. I have found a power wire for the flashers in the wire harness that the chassis sends to the back and terminates. However if I attach the flasher wire to the brake line after the convertor the flasher quits flashing. If I attach to both individual signal wires before the convertor this will cause a cross connection and both lights will signal when you are trying to get only a turn signal.

I am uncertain where to go from here, I have the power I need, just not sure where to connect it. Anyone else experienced this?

Any ideas appreciated

Hmmmm. Never heard that one before. The flashers should be lighting up the turn signal lights on the coach. I wouldn't advise jumping that hot wire onto the other circuits.

Look at this Trailer Wiring Diagrams | etrailer.com

Yes, it is strange, all 4 lights,(signal and stop) lights flash, but the signal does not show up at where the converter ties into the signal or stop wires. All the lights on the coach are flashing.
