I installed the bushtec hitch and isolator several months ago. All the lights worker properly.
Today I hooked up the trailer and could only get running lights.
I traced the problem down to the Bushtec isolator.
All the wires are "hot" going in the isolator but only the running light is "hot" coming out.
I don't have either turn signal or brake lights.
I have a couple of questions.
Any idea what may have "ruined" the isolator without blowing the fuse?
Would it be totally unwise to wire around the isolator?
Can these isloators be bought at any local type stores (auto parts, etc)?

I don't know what type of warranty Bushtec has on the isolator but if all else fails I contact them next week.

Call Bushtec, they should be able to help you. Your dealer or the local motorecycle accessory dealer should have them in stock if he sells trailers. The shop where my wife works installs them (your choice of brand) when they wire the bike for a trailer. The one on my Valk IS that was traded for the wing worked great. Was nor a Bushtec, but plan on putting the Bushtec hitch & isolator on the Wing.
