    Be careful Gedd, you may just run into the Easter Bunny, and I'm sure he'd probably want to throw rotten eggs at you. :waving:
    To answer your question, no way will we be working on Easter. There's plenty of days in the season to work, no need to work on a holiday.

    Other than snow removal, I haven't worked since fall so I'm certainly not going to start on Easter.

    I'm still trying to get my trailer lights working properly... I think a poltergeist took up residence in my trailer over the winter, because I sure can't figure out what the problem is.

    Jodi, I sure hope thats you & not Matt in that costume. BTW, I think it very unprofessional to work on Easter, Christmas, or most other holidays 7/4, Labor day, Memorial day, Thanksgiving or New Years day. The only exception I could maybe see would be snow removal, which must be done no matter what (at least the commercial accounts).

    BG - you kinda shock me... always preaching being professional, and still working on Easter. Wouldn't it bother you if you were having family over and the painter you hired threw a drop cloth over your Easter dinner to paint the dining room?? Oh never mind, you'd whack him w/ the shovel, then have Chico dig a hole in the back yard & bury him.

    Happy Easter!

    Darryl,
    Start by checking the wire harness on your truck only to see that it is okay. Then start checking the individual wires w/ a test light (make sure your trailer is on the ball and that you have a real good ground). If all else fails, just re-wire the trailer (brown running lights, green right turn/stop, yellow left turn/stop, white ground to trailer frame).

    Sorry to get off topic guys.....

    Hmmmm, in fact I didn't have the trailer on the ball. I just pulled up to it and plugged in. Everything works except when I use the right turn the running lights flash too and I get a weak flash on the LEFT side of My truck. I did clean up the ground and all the plug contacts. Thanks for the info.
