Marker lights keep blowing fuse

My marker lights keep blowing the 20 amp fuse towing with my new to me 2007 f250 6.0. Same problem with my old 2004, so FR was wrong it is not my truck, any ideas?

Is it the marker lights on the truck or FW that go out? Place a fuse directly into the trailer plug, it may help in determining which area the problems in. If the lights on the FW stay on and doesn't take out that fuse the issue is the truck.

Your a Hard man to Find! Yes get a resetable breaker or you will Never keep up changing fuses while trying to locate your short! I would start by checking ALL the places You and Your Little Buddy (Drilled/Changed/Installed all your Mods)! You Only have until March to find the short! Youroo!!

Good chance a screw punctured a wire. You will have to trace wires and check each light. Dealer may have a pulser box to find the short.

Glenn bought a new truck and still has the same problem. I guess that clears Ford and the truck aspect of the issue.

They stuffed insulation in your cap because it was caving in correct? Wondering if they shorted a connection there.

First place I'd look would be the trailer pig-tail plug, then work into trailer from there.

Clearance lights

I told Glenn to check his rear clearance lights across the top of his Fifth Wheel in the rear for water. I had the same problem, discovered the rear top clearance lights were full of water.

Drilled a small hole in the bottom of the red lens to let the water drain out. Also caulked the top of the red lens to keep the water out.
