After digging around on another forum I found the answer thay may or may not already be answered here. For that I will post what I found in case some of you ever get this problem. It appears the wires that run the lights on the truck i.e. tail lights, stop lights, parking lights etc. all have separate wiring from the front fuse box to the end of the truck then just branching off of those wires at the rear of the truck to run the trailer connections. I'm reserved as to if I like this design but it is what it is.
Turns out each is fused in this case from the fuse block under the hood in the engine compartment. 10A fuse small red one was blown. I changed it and used my test light to test the trailer connections in the rear and now I have power that blinks in sequence with the right turn signal. I also put the test light on each side of the fuse to test it there and it also blinked in sequence with the right turn signal.
The other post at the other forum confirmed this in other ford models.
After reading it I could not contain myself, I had to make a 2AM run to go get fuses and test this out for myself. I'm so glad i do not have to splice into the other wires to make my trailer connection work.
