When put in reverse all lighting system wentout


I take it that we're talking about a trailer hook up? Sounds like your ground is not quite good enough.

1)make sure you have the wiring done correclty. it's easy to cross wires
2)make sure your trailer lights are grounded to the trailer 3) make sure the trailer is grounded to the vehicle and then to the trialer.

When you put it in reverse you are also stepping on the brake, probably. It could be that your brake light and poor grounding is causing the problem, not going in reverse, could be....

Water system in my Coleman pop up not working


Make sure you have a water regulator connected to the water source before connecting it to your RV or the pressure could blow out your plumbing. The force of the water coming from the faucet can be too much for any RV and a regulator can be purchased from RV dealers, camping world, and even some Wal Marts carry them.

When you say that you have power up to the camper, do you mean power through the pigtail/wiring harness with the tow vehicle connected?

The trailer harness wiring is the only way to power these exterior camper lights, i.e., through your vehicle. There are no fuses within the trailer for the exterior lights. These lights are only fused from the tow vehicle's fuse box. So either the connections in the trailer harness are open, or they're open at the tow vehicle connection.

Do the turn signals work on the tow vehicle? If yes, then the only other thing to check is the turn signal flasher in your tow vehicle. A heavy duty flasher is recommended.

From the trailer, yellow, white, brown, red, green, is connected to your vehicle backup, ground (frame), right turn signal, left turn signal, running lights, respectively.

The trailer's blue wire is for an electric brake connection to your vehicle.

The trailer's small black wire should connect to the vehicle's hot, 12V lead for the interior lights. The large black wire at the trailer hitch is for charging an RV battery on your trailer, if it's supplied with one. Of all of these wires, only the large, 12 gauge, black wire goes to the 25 amp converter, which is fused, for the inside lights of the camper.

I hope this helps.
