Electical problems?

I have had my truck for about 6 months now. I bought it used, and it had a clear oasis report. Things look a little odd where my fuses are, and lately I have been getting a trailer fault alert for about 3 minutes randomly. It will beep and say trailer fault over, and over again. Yesterday, I was driving and my horn just started to go insane. It was honking for a good 5 minutes before it stopped. What is going on?! 2005 F-250, SCT tuned, exhaust, intake

Stop pushing the middle of the steering wheel.....

I don't know what is going on with your truck. Do you have pics of the "weirdness" going on at the fuse block? I bet somebody has wired some stuff in there and it's shorting out.......

Dang, that sucks. Sorry to hear that. Did they steal anything? If they tore up any wiring that could be the cause as well....
