Default trailer lights

Im going to get right to the point.

(i did the blinker mod by the way so please chime in if you think that has an effect on this)

Trailer hooked up to truck.
truck lights OFF
(trailer) Blinkers, and brake lights work

With truck Brake and blinker on, The trailer lights blink opposite of the truck. (left truck, right trailer and vise versa)

Truck Lights ON

Blinker, Brake, brake and blinker
The trailer lights will just blink left, right, left, right, left, right... you get the point.

Would a bad ground be the cause of this? or do you think its the blinker mod that would cause this. I havent pulled a trailer since ive done the mod. But the last time i pulled my boat, atv trailer and ice shanty they all worked great

well the opposite blinker problem just sounds like you have the wires reversed...the blinker mod shouldnt have an effect on your trailer

well undo the blinker mod and see if they work normal...the flashing side markers might be throwing it off
