Sometimes an intermittant problem such as this is caused by the blades in the RV plug or the connections on the truck receptacle become loose or spread apart. There are several versions of the plugs. Connect the trailer to the truck and have someone watch the lights as you move the plug around in the receptacle. If you are getting intermittant lights, take a small screwdriver and adjust the plug and/or receptacle contacts so they make better cotact with each other.

I would guess that when you sprayed the rusted socket you shorted that one. Re-check all your fuses.

And if it was that rusted, it may have failed internally. Time to get out the volt meter and see what is what.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
