Nice, easy fix.
It's not uncommon for the receiver to fail, possibly due to water leaking in via the sunroof.

it's surprisingly dry inside of the light unit

certainly haven't had any leaks myself during a car wash and some pretty heavy rain

Get used to it, it's 30 years old, French, with worthless electrics and a complicated hydraulic system that powers everything that matters . . .

. . . and it's French!

What could possibly go wrong 🤔 :roll:

Nice setting for a meet, is it Blyth?

Good to see you are using your Xm and that blue one looks really nice, the mid tone shows off the lines and detail, but yours being dark has the more sinister look.
Unsurprisingly the blue one has a dual electrics towbar, it was almost mandatory when they were new.
iirc, the Xm was Caravan Club towcar of the year due to the short rear overhang and hydractive suspension making for extremely stable towing.
