BUT: I understood Okie to say that he tested and found power at the pin for the brakes on the umbilical. Perhaps I misunderstood?

where would the inline fuse be for the brake line on a 74 International?

Brake lines are never fused.

The fuse, if there is one, is located upstream of the brake controller in the tow vehicle. It's mainly to keep the tow vehicle's wiring from doing its own impersonation of Chernobyl in case of a short. There isn't one on the trailer.

That's exactly where the missing fuse was in my case. As I originally said, the van was made ready in every way, except for one small detail: no fuse in the position in the van's fusebox that was for the trailer.

What a relief when I found that out. That, and I immediately wondered how the installer tested the wiring...?
