I don't know whether it is to do with higher or lower amps flowing (I think it is higher because ther are extra bulbs) that slows the ordinary one down, just as a failed bulb speeds them up.
Don't forget you also need a visual or audible warning specifically for the trailer indicator and I believe that the special flasher is able to register the loss of a bulb when towing _________________ Bristols should always come in pairs.

Hi, the last couple of cars I have put a tow bar on, have fitted a bypass relay unit, these use the rear lamps as a signal so don't load the existing car wiring . They have the flasher buzzer built in, only cost about £15.
