    Where do I find a trailer wiring harness for an aluminum triton?

    This used trailer I just got has a 4 pin flat harness, but there's 6 wires coming into it. One of the wires is broken right at the harness. Anyone come across this before? Where can I find a replacement?

    Thanks!

    Ordinarily trailers are wired up so that the frame of the trailer itself is the "ground". The Triton's don't do that, so the extra wires you are seeing are "ground" wires. The *broken* wire could either be one of those ground wires or it could be one of the turn or brake wires. If it is a ground wire, you could just splice it into one of the other ground wires and then seal that up good with some silicone or 5200. If it is one of the turn or brake lights that would be more of an issue. You could probably just get a regular 4-way connector and splice all the ground wires together. The other thing you can probably do is just contact Triton and buy a new harness.

    Tritons use a 4 wire harness, the extra 2 wires are a second ground and a second brown (headlight lead). You can use a standard 4 wire harness, just have to splice wires are the side markers on the tongue and at the back.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    I'll probably just get a new harness from Triton. The broken wire is green, I've got a side light out and a very weak right turn/brake light. The trailers 16 years old and I'm sure could use a rewire anyway.

    Thanks again.

    Thats the cheapest price I have seen on those lights.....well worth the money.......best bet is if you have problems with trailer lights is just replace everything......few hours and a few dollars,led lights = years of no problems......

    I have no issue rewiring the trailer, it's just grounding to aluminum to I'm not looking forward to. I have no experience there.

    I dont think there would be a problem just putting a ring terminal on the white wire and screwing it to the trailer frame.......

    Why did i think I couldn't ground to aluminum? So it's just like a normal galvanized trailer?
