Triailer wire or fuse?

My 07 outlaw won't operate the interior lights on my trailer. I have 2 of them and neither will work so I know it tha truck. But it doesn't show a auxiliary fuse. Anyone know the remedy? I think I read the truck needs to have a wire hooked up

Huh? My trailer's interior lights have always been powered by the trailer batteries not through the truck plug. I've never heard of the truck plugs running anything but running lights, trailer brakes, and your typically stop / turn / etc lights.

My trailer only has a battery for the break away brake system. Your truck should operate all 12v lights on a trailer. My buddy with a 2011 said he had to take his in to get his to work said he's had to on all his ford trucks.

My O8 had a fuse blown in the eng compartment fuse box that caused problems with my trailer wiring. I had to go through some digging to find out which one it was. I think it's the 25a one in the middle of mine if I remember right. That and the ground wire was lose on the hitch. With my trailer plugged in it runs all the light, 12v accessories including the elect jacks. Haven't had a problem since I replaced it.

Not sure if this helps or not but I figured I'd give my experience.
