Rear turn signals

I have a Roadsmith 2013 Conversion. When I turn on the turn signals, the front ones flash very rapidly, but the rear ones don't come on at all. Any suggestions as to the fix?

First place I would look is a bad ground.

Hyper flash normally means that there is not enough resistance from connected lamps. Normally one of the bulbs is out or not connected or grounded, as dwarf mentioned. First check the rear turn signal bulbs to see if they are good.

As discussed above - rapid flash means a bulb ain't working - either because it's burned out, or a bad connection/ground.


Change the rear bulb with a known good one - then go from there.

When cars do that, it usually means that either a bulb is out, or a week flasher unit. Not sure on a wing.
