Just to add to the above post. The isolator must be connected to the battery or other power source. It then uses the signal from the lights to trigger relays that use the power source to light the trailer lights and not the bike's wiring harness. This is how you avoid a Can-bus error.
Also the color code for the wires changed on the '18 bikes.
