Trailer tail lights

Is there a seperate fuse for my passenger side trailer turn/brake light? I dont have the original manual and all the fuses "look" good. The brake light works on the truck but nothing on the trailer. I traced back as far as I can being dark and only having a flashlight but nothing is making sence. I cant imagin the factory ford wiring harness just going out over night.

Why does this stuff always happen just before a road trip?

I don't know, but it happens to me too. I think it's just trailers. They never work.

The harder you work, the luckier you get

You don't have to be the best to start, but you have to start to be the best

Another thread says it's fuses 6 and 7 in the box under the hood. Don't know if the years are the same.
