    I have a problem with the lights on my trailers one trailer only the brake light work and on the other the brake and running light work. When I hook up to the other truck all the lights work. I checked my fuses and I'm thinking it has to do with the seven way. Is there a way to check the seven way to make sure it working. Thanks in advance

    You need to go to NAPA or some other automotive store and get a test light that looks like a ice pick. Ground it and stick your wires to find the problem. Then tape where you stuck it.

    check you grounds on the trucks and trailers..... most trailer light problems that aren't immediately obvious (burnt out bulbs, broken wires etc) are usually a grounding problem....
