"What Lakota said. From the various wiring problems I have fought I would start by making sure all the ground connections are good and that the trailer and tow vehicle are hooked together with a ground wire."

Pulling my hair out--4-Pin trailer wiring

I have a partial pop-up camper trailer--just the frame and bottom remain (also tires, hitch tongue, etc-it pulls fine).I'm trying to get it ready to register and use, but have run into wiring problems.  I got a brand new OEM compatible wiring harness for my van, and it was easy to attach, the ends plugged into the matching parts inside the taillights, all color coded and labeled.

Looking for advice on transforming truck camper...

...into a small trailer. 

I'm selling my truck and buying a van, so I don't need the two camper projects I've gathered.  I only have one set of jacks, so if I get rid of the '68 Frolic, and keep the (approx) '70 Real-Lite, I was thinking of cutting off the cab-over bunk, and slicing off the two feet at the back that currently has no floor and fixing it up and attaching ti to a trailer frame. 

I could leave the two feet on the back, it'll have the trailer floor…
