Re: The Towing thread

Thanks for all the replies to my query. I have got things a but arse up as I was starting to suspect! The car is in ATM getting sorted. The sparky has re explained it all.... the no 2 pin is for reverse and has only charges in reverse. The float manufacturer has wired the plug the way float and caravan makers do, and would work with an older car. Apologies for my mistake in the first place!!! 😳😳

Yeah the good thing about standards is there's always someone bastardising them so we have plenty to choose from. :sly:

Re: The Towing thread

I wish this forum had a like button la FB!! Have had a few good laughs at the posts. Picked the car up this afternoon and all is finally good😊😃 The auto electrician went through everything he'd done, including relocating some wiring the dealer had had done. The spare tyre was bumping up and down in it as was directly under it. I can't see any evidence of work being done which is great. If anyone needs a recommendation around the Mornington Peninsula was PM me for details. Oh , and the break away unit was shining brightly 😊
