Not to clear about your question Eddy, do you want the hitch lights to flash with the turn signals or not?

I am no Guru but I will give my 2cents worth whenever I get a chance.

Use your test light and find which wire in the harness causes the test light to glow when the brakes are applied.Connect the two wires and like God said, "Let there be light" provided there is a good ground or should I say earth.

I wonder if God said let there be brakelights?

Keep on Winging

Does your hitch cover have a trailer connector with it?

My bike is wired with a round connector, and I had to buy another one from an RV dealer so I could wire up my lighted hitch cover. Now it is a 'plug and ride' set up.

The trailer plug is rolled up inside the fender behind the side trunk. Then I took my test light and found the signal light is separate from the break light . YES YES YES I learned some thing today . The bike is not wired like a car . In A car the break light uses the same wire as the signal lights ,but on the bike they are separate and this makes it easy to hook up. NO WONDER YOU GUY,s were giving me a hard time. rightly so .IT,s TO EASY that way .I thought maybe I had to go back to the brake switch.
Taffy your sense of humor is is ,let me just say its from the other side of this WORLD!!!!! and maybe it should stay there.....HA !!! HA !! HA!!
Thanks charz you were bang on.
