Each element that you disconnect affects the voltage significantly considering the LED tail lights at the most takes 0.5 amps each. There should be no loading affect so you have a high resistance connection on the positive or negative that drops the voltage with an increase in current leaving the trailer with the remainder voltage. Basically, the voltage divider rule with the unknown high resistance connection being one leg and the boat lighting being the other.
typical led tail light draw:
Tail light: 40 milliamps
Stop/Turn: 460 milliamps
Out of curiosity, did you find the problem?
No and the Dealer looked at it and basically said,
Its Bright now....
I just shook my head, :-(
Just like i took it in for the Check Engine Light no codes, nothing found on the computer
Told them about the way when we surf goofy the Dash GPS is 1.2 MPH off all the time, it shows 11.6 mph when we are really going 10.5. Nothing found, i was told the guy water tested and filled both sides and drove it and it worked fine. BS because i didn't even have the Goofy bag hooked up due to testing the gravity games. Was a big Dealer Let down to be honest.
Not sure what route to take, i will prolly do some more testing this week when its hooked tot he truck on the hitch. Only thing the dealer said that was encouraging is they think it could be a ground wire, a bad wire or something but since the trailer lights are bright its not high on the priority list at this time of the season...
I realize this is very thin....but, is there a difference between when the trailer is dry versus after it was recently splashed?
Dump the dealer and take it to a trailer shop..

As far as the GPS. Do you surf on a body of water that has a current. At those slow speeds it will make a difference.
What i Did Monday on the river was just set it to RPM like i did in the 08 LSV, set it to 2900 RPM and it held just fine, i dont get why its reading off, in the River i would expect it too, on the Lake it shouldnt. IDK like i said still working through that one LOL.
Dave, Havn't tested it yet, im not done playing with it just backed off for the moment as May 18th i have a Dealer Event my boat is in and i dont want any issues before the event.
I still havnt called Boat Mate to check on their ideas but i will be after the event.
Right now all my focus has been getting my boards delivered, Soul Craft and now i got a Doomswell, getting my ballast figured out. Should be good this weekend, just got my Enzo sac in today. Will be on the Lake this weekend testing and hopfully have her all dialed in.
Only problem is i only have 1 enzo bag, they have been back ordered for some time and Wake Makers made sure i got one when they got them in.
Find yourself a electrical tech or engineer as they enjoy tracing out circuits and after doing a lot of this stuff it takes very little time. If I was closer........
