    New to pups, have a 2013 flagstaff my TV is a 2010 ram 1500 2w. On our last trip we left and all light worked fine. When we did our light check to return the camper right (pass side) would not flash. all other lights on camper and truck work fine. I new i cursed myself as my wife and I had just commented on this being our first catastrophe free trip :)

    Yup. Check the bulb first.

    Swap the two bulbs (left and right). If the problem moves to the other side, buy a new bulb. If not, wiring issue with the green wire that feeds the right brake/turn light.

    My bet is the wiring. If any of you have seen the wiring done from the factory. :shocked:

    Try wiggling the connector between the truck and trailer. That fixed an intermittent connection on our rig.

    If you disconnect the tv do the turn signals work on the tv? I’m thinking you have a bulb out on the truck.

    Not sure on Dodge/ Ram, but check fuses on your truck. GM has separate fuses for trailer lights (tail, lt turn, rt turn, etc).
    Edit: just noticed you said it was good at the trailer connector, so disregard

    It is a two filament bulb - one filament could be burned out (the brake/blinker) and the other could be just fine (the tail light).

    Corrosion was the culprit when it happened to me. A spray can of electrical terminal cleaner and I was good to go.

    Start with these in order..
    Bulb
    Light ground point
    Trailer connector plug, could be corrosion on the turn signal lug.
    Truck fuse

    Should be quite easy to figure out..
