Folks, the preceding story is true. Just as we went to pull out of the driveway Thursday, my wife said that the left hand brake light didn't work. I tried new lightbulbs, I found that the LH brake/turn terminal from the tow vehicle wasn't giving any voltage, it kept blowing the TV fuse. I was real worried that when I put on the new marker lights I did something wrong, and didn't know where to begin.

Short story, I called pattersontoo, and he suggested the trailer and tow vehicle connectors. Sure enough, that's what is was, the ground had pulled from the terminal inside the trailer connector. Follow Lou's advice and check that first.
