Where is the Running lights fuse?

I had 3 running lights that were working intermittently. All three had bad wire connection at the light. While taping the wire on the last one I accidently touched the housing with the bare wire blowing a fuse somewhere. I need some help locating the fuse for the running lights for my '74 Sovereign. I have the original Univolt and have checked all the fuses and all are ok. My service manual mentions a "mini fuse" but doesn't say where it is located. We are headed out to Yellowstone for two weeks on Monday so I sure would like some help locating this fuse. Any help will be appreciated.

As far as I know there is no running light fuse on your trailer. They depend on the fuses in the TV for protection. So, that is where I would look for the problem. The running lights, stop/turn and backup lights get their power from the tow vehicle, not the Airstream electrical system.

In my 1979 Safari, the power for these lights does come from the tow vehicle, but then goes through glass fuses in the fuse block in top of the convertor at the front of the trailer. Check the fuse block for the trailer.

Running lights fuse is in the TV

The fuse is located in the fuse block for the towing package on my F150 & not in the fuse block in the cab of the truck. I assume this is to separate the TV lights from the trailer lights since my TV parking lights didn't go out. Thanks for the Bill & idroba.
