Re: MY14 DIY Trailer Socket Wiring

Anyone know where the instructions say or the dealers like to wire the white/earth wire to? I want to minimise the amount of things I pull apart.

90% sure mine is not earthed properly, the lights on the trailer only work when it's actually on the ball.

Try this. Earth is bolted down in the left rear quarter.

It's not a matter of "like", there are standards. You can see them here Wiring Diagrams - Products - Narva

Definitely a faulty earth. It may actually be wired correctly but the connection is faulty somewhere along the line, most likely at the plug. A multimeter would be useful to find the fault.
