7 pin tow connector fusing

Regarding 3170DS... I assume the 7 pin connector at the rear is fused. How is this fusing done and where is it done? If the 7 pin connector really only taps into the existing wire harness for the rear lights then maybe the fusing is the factory fusing? There is also the accessory power line. How is that fused?

I just installed BlueOx TOAD brake light system, the one that comes with two light bubs and a four wire harness, on our van. Everything works fine, but I was thinking that none of the three powered wires (left, right, tail) are fused. So, I figure I better have some idea of how the fusing is done on the RV side and make sure to carry a few spare fuses.

I have not wired in the accessory to charge the TOAD battery but will if I notice that the van is losing charge after a days worth of towing.

Thanks everyone...

the fuses for the 7 pin connector are under the hood in the power distribution box. if you have the owners Manuel it will show you the locations of the fuses and relays.
