Trailer Lights

I just picked up my camper from storage. None of the lights work, (brake, turn signal or running lights) but my trailer brakes are working. Is there a fuse in the truck that could be out? Any suggestions??

Check your owner's manual for lighting fuses and/or relays. My '01 has separate fuses for truck lighting vs trailer lighting.

First, test for power with a test light at the plug on the truck.

^^ What he said, I thought the same thing, ended up being the ground on the trailer got rusted over winter, no ground, no lights. Fix ground, all good!

Had this before. Under the hood there is a fuse that has blown. I can't remember the exact one and I'm offshore and can't go to my truck and tell you the exact one sorry.
