Hi guys not sure what's going on? Have a 2020 F250 7.6 and just bought a 2021 Enclosed trailer and there is 12 volt light's inside that run off the + 12 feed line in the trailer plug on the truck. Its at the 7 clock position looking in to the plug on the truck. I check the trailer its perfect and truck should be to? 3,500 Miles but the 12 Volt feed from truck work's and does not?? Like its on a timed relay?? What turns that feed on and off?? I confirmed with a test light no power there? Then it will have power?? HELP LOL

Thank you

Does it only get power when the headlights are on ? I’ve heard of some trailer wiring issues and not getting power when DRL are on/off.

The system requires a power draw on the 7-way and then holding the brake pedal for about 3 seconds until your dash registers "trailer connected". At that point, the vehicle will deliver the 12V power to your trailer connector and not before. I recommend using a circuit tester to test for the 12V power once you get that "trailer connected" message on the dash. That 12V power will be on the 1 o'clock pin location on the 7-way so the corresponding wire will need to be probed to test.
