The shortest route to Grandma's house is not not take any short cuts.
In the case of wiring, don't take any 'short curcuits' either.   ;D

I bought an adapter at the local autozone similar to this http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Reese-Tail-light-converter-with-60-in-wire-and-4-way-connector/_/N-262o?counter=2&itemIdentifier=182754_0_0_
Had you bought the power module, you would not have to deal with replacing both flashers and the extra load on your fragile J box.

Hope it works out for you.

Just went and looked. The unit I have is made by Hoppy. I ride daily and the trailer is almost always hooked up. It has been working fine for about a year. I am running all led's on the trailer. The only bulbs on the bike that I haven't switched to led are the headlight, the front turn/running lights, the rear turn signals (Electrical Connections conversion kit installed) and the license plate light.

Oops! My bad. Didn't even think of the LED angle.
