    Is this your own numbering system? If it is, then this is the official one

    LOL, nah it doesnt give any smoke at all, just the engine is getting a bit tired, i was talking in another post that im gonna rebuild it but i have to put it off for a while, gotta save the $$$........

    as for the numbering system, yes its my own numbering system, because you see, my electrical skills are about as good as my luck with women, absolutly hopeless.....lol

    hmmm, that link is good, ill try to wire it up by the numbers, then ill test it on the trailer, ill soon find out if the trailers wired up properly too because i never used to have a right brake light on the trailer but the bulb is not blown....

    as for the drawing, well i was suffering from a bad case of extreem boredom....and a simple picture of a trailer plug turned into....well......yeh......lol

    for sure we'll have to orginise a trip on the water one day for all the
    boat-towing frogs.

    Hi Owen,

    This will make it clear to everyone.

    From the federal department of transport

    Standards Bulletin Vsb1

    http://www.dotars.gov.au/transreg/vsb/vsb_01_b.aspx

    Section 10 deals with wiring.

    It is now almost universal for lightweight trailers to use the 7 pin flat plug,
    I recommend you go with the masses and change over, then if you need to shift other trailers you won’t need an adapter

    take special note of the numbering in the flat pins, they do not go 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.etc.

    Ranger.

    If you couldn't be bothered dealing with this job, consider getting an auto electrician to do it.I had a towbar wired up two weeks ago for $45, including parts.The dude used a flat plug, by the way

    cool thanks for the useful links everyone...

    i have wired it all up and it all works, and while i was at it i replaced the crappy boat trailer lights with some nice bright LED combination lights, like the ones you see on the back of semi trailers (what a coincidence, my dad works at a trailer company!!! )

    now people will accually be able to see the lights in the bright sun, AND they all work when i turn them on!

    AAAAAAAAAAND, i will remember to unhook the plug now, ive never forgoten with the box trailer, but this boat trailer has been nothing but trouble up until now, as far as lighting and electrics goes....lol

    Just a neat trick I tried years ago after I ripped out several plugs I used the spare pin and a sonalert complete with cheap relay when I turned the ignition on with a trailer hooked up the sonalert wnt BEEEEEEP until I pressed a reset button to turn it of. Its worth the trouble if you are using a trailer often.

    If you are intersted I can draw up the circuit for you let me know

    Cheers
