the hot pin is on the truck ? should be for charging batteries on camper if pulling a camper

You should still be able to use the same wiring for a utility trailer that pin is omitted when the male plug is wired correctly, from trailer to truck.

On trailers that have battery to apply brakes when trailer breaks away from tow vehicle, that hot lead would be used to charge the trailer"s battery. Common on horse trailers.

The pin is hot in the truck,yes. I figured it might be for interior lights in a trailer or something,like a dome light in the stock trailer.

I can't figure out why the turn signal started working when I fixed that wire though? Coincidence? I moved something else and it started making contact while I was messing with it?

Doesn't make sense that it would feed to a ground somewhere does it,and complete a circuit?

hot wire n a 7 pin trailer hookup is for accessories or to keep the breakaway battery charged on a utility trailer.

My thoughts on why the turn signal started to work after you fixed the other wire are, Because you moved the wire around that go to that turn signal. I think all the wires in the plug need redone if you have been pouring coke in there to get them to work in the past, They are all going to need redone, Could be why the brakes don"t work also. I know that is where I would be looking.

Roy! that is toooo much information. Sure is a colorful sheet though. I hope rrlund is better than me at reading wiring diagrams. I am somewhere between dumber, and imbecel level. Can't spell good either.

I believe the one wire that stays hot in the plug on late model vehicles is for pulling trailers that is equipped with anti-lock brake systems. These trailers require a hot wire to feed that system at all times.
