Quick check: tail lights when door opens
« on: July 16, 2013, 05:23:00 am »
Was sitting in the toad this weekend when bride opened and shut the passenger cab door. The tail lights flashed when the door shut, tested driver's side, ditto.

Ignition is off, MH is in "use", E 450, 2010, and plugged in to 120V, parked in storage lot.

Can a couple of you try to see if this happens on your vehicle. What i cannot figure out is why would this happen?Could it be linked of the drain of house power (batteries) we have been dogged with on and off for the last two years.

On both our 2010 and our 2012 PC when you open either the drivers door or the passengers door all the running lights come on and stay on for about 30 seconds. This includes the turn signal/brake, the upper front and rear and the lower side running lights. Depending on how often you use the cab doors when parked, it could run down the engine battery.
