Need towing wiring help fast..before next weekend
 
Tonight I decided to replace a trailer marker light on the back of my Featherlite car trailer. Trouble is, I must have blew a park lamp fuse somewhere. I have all the lights working on the Jeep,but the trailer wiring plug doesn't have power to the back. I have turn, and brake lights in the plug,not park light power. Since there are 3 of the damn fuse boxes,where would I look for the blown fuse 1st? The owners manual is so stinking helpful,I would like to congratulate the bonehead for making it user friendly...NOT! I have a tractor pull next Saturday and would like to resolve this ASAP..Please help a moron back on his feet....:D

Yes it all worked just 5 minutes before I started to replace the LED rear center lights. I traced all the trailer wiring and it's good. I must have either kicked a relay or blew a fuse while I removed the one light.When I traced it back to the Jeep, I had power in both the 7 plug and 4 plug for brakes and turn signals.I just didn't have the park lights. That led me to believe the fuse could be blown. I looked in the owners manual and they list them but don't show it in the fuse box too well..I'm gonna dig into it later this A.M. Thanks for the great help! Been real busy getting home things,garage things done that I haven't been replying on websites,just turned into a lurker for now. I knew someome could and would be able to help me out here..

Thanks for the help as I finally figured it out.Don't know why Chrysley didn't just print up a readable fuse box diagram. I started out under the hood and located the 3 red fuses for parking lights. I pulled each one and visibly inspected them.At first,I didn't see anything wrong in the area they normally burn out in.I replaced the left and right park lites and thats when it got screwy... Seems the fuse that must have been in the towing light fuse holder was bad. I replaced it with a spare from the box.Upon inspection of the bad fuse,it did something I have never seen before. It burnt out real close to the prong in the fuse and actually made the contact tang loose, But...It's all good again.I really appreciate the guidance. Now,if only I can catch up on my jobs around the house so I can hang out on the net..Thanks again!
