Well, I was checking up on the lighting on my 1985 pop up for a camping trip. Trailer hadn't been used in a while and I wanted to make sure the lights were working. In the past, a thump was needed to get a few working, but yesterday I wanted to avoid the thump, so I went through checking contacts and bulbs. Just better this way.
The tail lights appeared dim, I thought. I have never had a grounding problem with this trailer. I take off the lenses to check for dirty bulbs or dirt inside the lenses. Nope. Not that. I open up both tail lights to check to see if each of the bulbs have the same brightness. I even swapped out with a new bulb. No change. (scratches head) Hmmmmm? It must be that it's in the brightness of the day.
So I thought.
Get home do the honey this is what I did on my trailer thing and it dawns on me - I had been wearing my glasses which transition automatically to dark in sunlight. (smacks palm to forehead) The tail light bulb brightness was muted due to my tinted glasses.
I will go back today and double check sans my glasses.
