in all fairness how do you tell when its been removed if it was a caravan club 7 pin which we dont test anyway or a 12 pin that we do?had loads taken off after failing the plug in test cos theyre generally on a multiplug on the loom,off,pass,plug it back on when ive finished cos whatever your tester shows 9 times outta 10 its working anyway,utter waste of our time

aint a fail for it missing,damaged/exposed wiring?yup.p+a would be my guess till they fix it.how can not being able to plug it in at all be a pass but a foglight not working on your trailer socket tester is a fail?hey i didnt write the regs.....

hi guys just after some clarification. if a trailer electrical socket has been removed but the tow ball is still fitted is that any reason for an advise/fail?, i cannot seem to find any info in section 4.10 so am fairly certain no but it intrigued me nonetheless.
