Yes, when you have LR wiring a wee trailer flashes on the dash when you indicate. Thumbs Up .. strange at first as I was used to a buzzer Do it now ! Your a long time dead !!

You will see a towing symbol when you use the indicators. Also you can tell it knows its there by the revesing sensors not sounding even though there is something there.

If you dont see that behaviour it might be because the trailer/caravan/float has LED lights rather than bulbs.... the stupid computer cant detect that there is something there unless its using about 20watts of power. The fix for that is a resistor wired in accross the indicator circuit to use a bit of power and tell the vehicle there is something there.

RNSLIG there is an easy fix if you've the inclination which allows the functions of the Gods of Freelandia to work their dashboard, and reversing signal magic. You can have a look here http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic32548.html?highlight=led+trailer
Good luck and God speed. Statistics, where one can be one, two.
