That looks like an antenna on the side opposite the wire. Did the previous owner install something? Wireless backup camera? Remote leveler with receiver in tow vehicle?


Yes, it does have a small antenna on the side, the camper is brand new, I'm the first owner, the light was already there when I bought it. No remote leveler, I installed a backup camera (Furrion) but its antenna is on the camera itself in the back.

Oh, yes, the trailer indeed came with a tire pressure monitoring system, I have not installed it yet, so perhaps that's why I can't find mentioning of the light in any other manual [emoticon]

I have to say, trailer manuals are the most generic type I've ever seen, it's not quite like your TV manual that shows function and name of each tiny component, I'm enjoying the learning curve thanks to you all [emoticon]

Trailers are, very much, a collection of parts put together kinda randomly. Hopefully you have all the manuals for everything that came with it, but you will never get one manual for the trailer that covers everything.

Think of it like having a manual for your house. Who knows what fridge, freezer, stove etc. would be installed.

Precisely. I have the manuals for all appliances but for the trailer itself is available just online, but it's too broad because it applies to a whole category with different configurations and there's so much "if equipped" language in there. I'm really, really glad I found this forum, it would have taken me forever to figure things out on my own. Can't thank you all enough.

Very true and quite normal on the fishing forums I visit.
Unfortunately on this site we have a few crotchety old folks looking to tee off on their prey. Lol

Funny, I have had more issues with a couple of crotchety younger folks that have actually belittled me because I am older than them.

Hi all, just an update, I came back from camping last weekend and popped the "battery disconnect switch" that came standard in the RV, so far so good, 5 days later when turn the switch on the battery charge indicator shows 100% charge.

I'm sure you know this but I'll say it anyway. The indicator will show 100% if the trailer is plugged regardless of the state of battery charge. The charge indicators are only a crude indication of actual charge. Be sure to use the disconnect switch as soon as possible after parking so that the maximum charge is retained. It does sound like you are successful.
