    Cableguy these images are amazing. I have a question on the trailer wiring diagram for the flat four pin diagram. Maybe you can clarify, I don't have the best vision but I am looking at the part where you have to have three red marker lights on the back of the trailer if it is greater than "x" inches wide. What is that value? It looks like 60" or 5 ft but I can;t tell for sure. What state is that the law in? I am building a trailer for use in colorado and I am wondering if I need those. Its not a big deal, so maybe I should put them on there anyway just to be safe. Thanks for the help!

    I forgot to ask one more thing, I figured since it looks like you know alot about trailers you might be able to help me. The trailer I am making is 6 ft wide and 8 ft long. I am thinking about putting 4 totzl marker lights on it, with addition to the turn signal/brake lights. So If I add the three more markers on the rear that makes for a total of 7 markers and 2 main turn and brake lights. Would this total amount of lights cause a problem with the power output. Basically what I am asking is that will all of the lights be dim since there is so many of them running on a single power supply? I am planning on using the cheap lights from walmart that have conventional automotive grade lightbulbs. Would it be better to use the more expensive led kind since they will require less power. Or would I be better off running two power sources one for the drivers side of the trailer and one for the passanger side of the trailer in order to provide enough power for all of the lights. Thanks for your help!

    I got my trailer 1/2 re-wired, but I think I'm going to do it again with a better plan.

    2009 factory auxilary cable?

    My owners manual says there is an auxillary cable on my 2009 3500HD with the factory installed trailer brake controller that I need to take to the dealer to have hooked up. I need this cable to charge the deep cycle battery on my dump trailer. Does anyone know where it is and what is the magical trick that only the dealer can do?
