Question running lights not working.

Thanks for everyones help on the breakaway switch. There turned out to be a wire disconnected from the breakers in the front. Now the clearence and running lights don't work. I have turn signals and brake lights but nothing else. Is there a fuse in the trailer or should I be looking for a blown fuse in the tow vehicle. I installed an electronic brake controller and that is working great. I am thinking I must be overlooking something simple. Thanks in advance for your input.don't know what I would do without Airforums.

In our case it was a relay in the tow vehicle that caused the same problem. Found it in the TV owner's manual (F150). About $12 and I got a spare to carry just in case.

Run a wire from the +12 volt terminal on the camper umbilical plug to the marker light terminal and see if they work then. That'll help you figure out where the fault lies.
