Question Trailer Tow Parking Lights Fuse?

Hello,

I have a 2014 gc and my pia of a jet ski trailer has a short again and blew the fuse in my jeep. Found the fuse its a 20amp in spot F29 under the hood with all the other fuses. Now comes the fun part, the auto store i stopped at said they never saw one this size before and did not have it. Went to the jeep dealer, nope they told me to drive to one 10 miles away to find one that they had it in stock.

On the fence about this car and this just adds to it. wtf would you design it with this fuse this way, must be a way to make more money for jeep.

Anyways, does anyone know of any places that stock this or suggestions? Cannot get to another jeep dealer today so thought I would post it to see if anyone had any tips on places to get it. Can't wait to see the cost lol. My trailer did this to my honda, but thankfully that fuse was standard one you could buy in any store.

I bought a pack of mini fuses in the sizes the Jeep uses at Pep Boys.

I'm not so sure that the "fuse" you mention really is a fuse at all. I had exactly the same issue as you, only to find that the fuse had reset.
I think it is some kind of circuit breaker.

Two dealers - totally clueless. Hmm we don't have it was their response
Peep boys
Advanced auto
Auto zone

No one had them said they have not seen them this small. Guess I call jeep customer care again.

It's a little stupid that their own dealers cannot find the part.

Have you checked to make sure that yours is not working?
As I mentioned above, I had the same issue with the same "fuse", only to find that the thing had reset.

Yes.

I verified no light on my plug adapter after my lights would not work on the trailer. I pulled the fuse and can see where it's not connected.

Going to redo my wiring on the trailer as I think there is a short somewhere. But stil need spare fuses.

Ok. Sounds like they don't like a short circuit. Mine was just overloaded.

Since some are having an issue understanding the problem decided to take some pics. This fuse is not the size of the ones in the stores. It is slightly smaller. Of 608 of the manual f29.
