Midnight in the garden of good and….

….Electrical problems. Which are very close to being evil! 😉 :p

Not what you wanna be doing at midnight(yes, it’s that light here at exactly 12am! ) …

 Wired in new trailer wire plug on my truck(1st time it’s had a current/useful trailer plug since the 80s !). Got all done, works great, then notice I have a truck tail light out. 

Uhuh. Trailer lights still ok. Hmm. 

 Check bulbs, ok. 

Start tracing/probing for power before my splices, and after… at the socket… good past the splices for 4″ I can see, nothing at the socket…

 Normally I’d have ignored it for a day or two till I could trace the 4′ of remaining harness. But I had to be in town to the trooper sub station/dmv in the morning. Uhuh, not doing that with a light out. 😉

 I cheated and spliced in, and ran a new bypass wire for the tail light on that side. 😉😈😇 

I’ll go back and pull the old wire and see about sheathing this one later when I have more time. 

I hatecwiring/electrical/electronic work. Although ironically I find it very interesting and intriguing! And amazingly I’m getting passable at it. Ha!
