Trailer plug accessory power F-350 7.3 2001

My truck has the factory trailer wiring plug, but there is no power to the aux power terminal. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker somewhere? It appears to be the orange wire that feeds the terminal, I checked all of the fuses in the fuse box under the hood on the drivers side, all were ok. I use that power source for the electric jack on my boat trailer.

Might just have to run a new wire back there if you aren't having any luck, how far up can you trace the factory wire?

I only looked at the plug and saw that there was an orange wire going from the harness into the plug. By that time is was 11pm and I quit. Will look some more tonight.

Read the owners manual. I think you have to add a fuse to make it work, just like the trailer brakes. It should be one under the hood in the power distribution box.

My truck didn't come with the owners manual, but I will check the fuse box.
Thanks.

Smile Hi Guy's

I have a manual for my 99 f-350 and it shows it should have a 30 amp maxi fuse. The location in the box shows number 16. It is the trailer tow battery charge wire. Hope this helps. I know when I wired my travel trailer plug mine didn't work either. I replaced the fuse and things were good to go.Hope this helps. Just remember my manual was for a 99 just be cautious.

I checked the fuse and it was ok, then I turned on the ignition, and it worked.
I feel pretty stupid! But on my Chevy that terminal is hot with the key off.
Thanks for the help. All is good now.
