I've owned a Versa Trailer since 1977. If you take off the ends, remove the fenders, and then remove the sides, you'll see the wiring channel running down both side of the trailer from front to rear. I just bought an LED light set that came with a wiring harness. White = ground to trailer body; brown is running lights to side markers and rear; then Green goes I believe to left rear and Yellow to right rear for Stop / Turn.

Hi,
I rewired my versa trailer several years ago. Go to any place that sells the 4 wire strand trailer wire and get about 40 feet. It is a bit tedious but about a 2 to 3 hour job.

If you run across someone that wants sell their trailer, please let me know. The top on mine is very hail damaged.

Trailer light connections


I have had many people ask about trailer light connection problem and the biggest one I have had to answer is.( When connected and the lights turned on than with the brake is depressed the trailer lights shut off. What causes this?)
The answer to this is simple. You have a bad ground problem between your vehicle and the trailer. This can be solved by looking at your trailer wire connection plug. Fray a little bit of the white wire on the plug. some place easy where you can wrap it with electrical tape when you get done. Take another wire and connect it to the frayed part of the wire. once this is done take the wire and connect it to a part of the trailer that is free of debree,rust,corrosion and some place that will not be subject to coming off or broken. Once this is done turn your lights on and depress the brake. If your lights do not go off than permamantly attach the wire to that location and wrap the wire at were you have frayed it.

If this does not fix the problem than look at the connection on the vehicle. Once again take another wire and connect it to a frayed point on the white wire of the vehicle. find a spot on the vehicle to connect the wire to. than try your lights again. This should work in all the cases i have had to deal with. if it does not feel free to contact me and i would be glad to help you at any time.

Trailer Lights, I have a polarity problem. The LED tail lights on my trailer only work if I reverse the plug-in, any idea on how to fix this polarity problem.


Possibly the person that borrowed your trailer changed some of the wires. Old-type bulbs don't care about polarity, but LEDs do.

I have a Coleman model 7665 about 30 years old. The blower has started making noise and slows, then speeds up, generaly laging. What is the cause?


Hi, your problem is the bearings and electrical windings in this old motor are going out. This is caused by dust, dirt, and the age of this motor. The motor will start to over amp causing it to heat up and slow down and speed up again. The noise you are hearing is the wear on your motor bearings. It will stop completely soon, and not work at all. If you can, you may think about an upgrade as this is a very old unit. Or, you can have the motor and run capacitor replaced. About an hour labor, you would need to call around to several places for a estimate. Try and find a good company with a good reputation to do this. But yes, this is the problem. Good Luck,

Interior lights, appliances work fine when plugged


Check for a faulty inline fuse or circuit breaker at harness attached at front of trailer. Follow positive wire back to trailer.

Entering the panel wired to 2 30 amp parallel circuit breakers. Black to copper 260 wolts Red to ground (same as copper ) 260 volts How do I get 130 volts to each breaker?


DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT WIRE YOUR GENERATOR DIRECTLY TO YOUR PANEL!!!!. You may cause the death of a utility worker if the power goes out and your generator it running. Go get a transfer switch and follow instructions carefully. If you do it incorrectly and cause and injury to a utility worker, you can expect to go to jail or pay a fine that will set you back many years. I can see from your question you have no idea what is going with electrical connections or how wiring works. Hire and licensed electrician and avoid trouble for you and others. This is nothing to play around with or try learning on your own. People could die.
