A tricky one I think. When driving with my camper on the back, the electric brakes work well. however, every so often, there is a small click noise coming from the brake sensor under the steering wheel, the little red light clicks on with the noise (and off again) and the amber turning indicaters on the rear of the traier, blink on as well. Any ideas?
Thanks.

Vehicle electrics are a black art. Might be a short somewhere in the trailer wiring.

Sorry Paul I have to disagree with you, There has never been a problem with the Prodigy.

I think you are thinking of the Techonsha Voyager.

Don't blame the controller, it sounds like a short in the trailer wiring between the blinker circuit and the brake circuit. The click could be the flasher relay being activated by the brake circuit.

Open up the plugs and check for bad wiring.

Check also the earthing of the lights on the c/t. That can do funny things.
