No left turn signal on trailer plug

I have a 96 F250 with no power to the the left turn signal post on my trailer plug. Tracing back up the wiring harness to the pigtail, I have no power at that point either. I am wondering if I need to run a new wire all the way back to the front of the truck, or whether I could just remove my left rear tail light cover and splice into the wire there and run it to my plug. I am not sure if I would be affecting any fuses or electrical capacity by doing so. I really don't want to have to try and find the break in the wire between the pigtail and the front of the truck.

I had a similar issue and it was the fuse in the distribution box under the hood.

Wow! That fixed it!! How stooooopid do I feel! But, for those facing a similar problem, the reason I did NOT even consider a fuse was because:

1) The left turn signal on the truck worked fine.
2) All the other trailer lights worked fine.
3) I did not consider that a fuse would affect only that post on the plug. I guess it may serve other posts on the plug that I do not use.

Anyway, something to remember. Thanks for the advice and responding to my query. You saved me a TON TON TON of time barking up the wrong tree!!!
