Need trailer help today! Trip tomorrow :(

Pulling a camper to Florida. The thing worked a few days ago when I brought the trailer home, but when I loaded it back up today, the running lights decided not to work on the factory trailer harness. Everything else works though: brakes, turns, backup.
I took a tester to it and the top left pin (designated running lights) isn't providing power. Is there a fuse for that? Anything suggestions on where to start?


If I can't get that wire working right, is there another wire I can tap off from easily to rig this thing up for now?
Will tapping the 12+ to the right of it work ok? (I know they will always be on)

Thanks! The box is under the driverside dash, but that was it! I need to get another 20a fuse. Unfortunately, there's probably a reason it blew. The camper is pretty old, so maybe the shielding rotted or.......


Thanks for the quick help! I really didn't think the truck had a seperate fuse for trailer wiring. lol

On the factory rv style plug. you should have 12 volt keyed power on the trailer battery charging circuit. Looking at the truck plug it is lower right from center pin.
