Short in Running lights

every time I turn on the TV lights it blows the fuse for the trailer lights in the TV, I assume there is a short somewhere in the trailer. Any tips on how to track down where it is???

Do you have the original umbilical cord on the trailer? If yes, then it's wired according to the then current Airstream standard, not the current umbilical wiring standard. That's the best place to start - verify the trailer plug is wired correctly.
