I have wired up both stop and tail lights and also R/H side reversing light into previous blank lights and have been ok for 2 months
Towed trailer last week and noticed that both Stop light globes have blown
Checked wiring and is definitely globes that have blown
Tail lights and reverse ligts are OK

I remember reading that it may be necessary to wire a relay up to these

If this is the case can anyone enligten me to the procedure for doing this

Otherwise I will just replace globes and see how they go next time

Thanks in advance

I have done the rear lights on a few Patrols mine and a few in the club and I have not used a relay on any of them.Check the earth wires also are you using good globes (lots of cheap ones around)

On mine it was the blinkers that kept on blowing when towing.
I increased the fuse from 10 amp to 15 amp (from memory) and every thing has worked fine for 3 years now.
