Ice Castle running lights

Recommended Posts

So heres the deal. I go to plug my trailer to the truck and I keep blowing the fuse under the hood? It is 1 year old and the truck is new. I plugged into the spare trailer and it works just great. any ideas? its all sealed up so i don't know what to even look at. any help would me great.

Thanks in advance,

open up the plug and make sure all the wires are tight and none are touching each other.

Sounds like a short on the fish house running lights. Wire shorts can be tricky to find.

Since another trailer with the truck is fine suspect your issue is in your 1 year old fish house.

GOOD LUCK!

Its the fuse on the truck under the hood that pops when i plug the house in. I did take apart the plug and it looks brand new no wires touching and everything was good and tight. I did however find a tail light that looked black so i will get a new one tomorrow. Could that be the problem? If it is a short on the trailer that will be a real problem.

yep can be a pain. My brothers shack did the same thing. Not a Ice Castle, but another brand. We figured that the person that owned it before him ran a screw through a wire somewhere. We ended up rewiring the whole thing from the hitch to the backlights with new wire. It now lays along the inside along the edge of the wall.

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
