ELECTRICAL HELP NEEDED BAD

I have a short and need some help. I am blowing a fuse in my 2003 7.3 it is a 20 amp fuse that is labeled for trailer running lamps and back up lights. I thought I had a bad socket for the reverse lights or a grounded wire. (NO) I thought my trailer plugs were grounded out. (NO) So my running lights work fine everything is ok I blow this fuse when I shift down into drive and then back through Reverse into park. It is happening when I am going though reverse. I put a new neutral safety switch in because if I unplug it the problem is gone. Plug it in bam I wipe out the fuse. This only happens when I am shifting back through reverse into park I also traced all the wires down to the neutral safety switch they all ring out I am at a total loss.

Pull the steering column off and check the wire coming from the shifter it might have worn threw and grounding out.

It's just under the cover,the wire may turn right after it comes out of the shifter.
