Nash 17K turn signals.

The left turn / flasher / brake light doesn't work on our Nash. I know the problem isn't with the truck since the 7 way port on the truck will operate the left signal on another trailer. I've cleaned the 7 way connector on the Nash hoping for a simple fix, but no. I'm assuming it's the light assembly, but can't see a straightforward way to remove it. Also is there an online source for Nash parts? Thanks for any help.

Your lights are a little different than mine, but I think both are similar in installation. The outer piece is a snap on bezel. Gently pry out to remove, then mounting screws are accessible. Your appears to have a small bead of sealant on it.

Tail light wiring

I removed the old tail light & installed a new one, but that didn't solve the problem. Apparently there is an interruption somewhere in the red stop/turn wire inside the trailer. Anyone have any information about the path of the turn signal wires?

We have no generator in the compartment built to hold it. If I remove the rear panel inside that compartment, will that expose tail light wires?

I think you are going to have to do some more troubleshooting. I know you said your truck 7 pin connector works on another trailer. I have my 5th wheel, a gooseneck stock trailer, and a hydraulic dump utility trailer( all trailers have 7 pin pigtails). On the truck, I've got a 7 pin connector (factory) on the rear bumper, and one in the bed near the rear wheels. The bed connector works with the gooseneck and the dump trailer, but not the 5th wheel. The 5th wheel works great on the bumper 7pin. I've changed connectors on the truck , but the results are the same. I have not changed the pre molded 7 pin pigtail on the 5th wheel. I just plug the 5th wheel into the bumper 7 pin.
You may want to try calling Nash and see if they can help with wiring diagrams. I would also double check the grounds and crimp connections. Good luck, hope it turns out to be something simple.

When you changed the light did you check to make sure you where getting power back to the light? Doesn't sound like you did. I would think it unlikely that there's a problem with the wire between the light and where the pigtail attaches to the wire going back to the light. I would check that connection where the pigtail wire hooks to the wire going back to the light and see if you have power there. If you don't have power there then the problem has to be in the trailer's 7 way plug.
