Blown Fuses for Right Brake/Turn Signal

I have a 2013 Tracer 3150 BHD. I continually blow the trucks 10amp fuse, and loose the right brake/turn signal light on my camper. I know the problem is in the camper. It did the same on my old truck, 2003 GMC, and continues to on my brand new 2015 Chevrolet. Obviously there is a short somewhere. Any suggestions on where to start?

Not trying to be a smart axx but start at one end and work your way to the other. could be in the plug or light or somewhere in between . shorts can be a pain to find

I'd start by inspecting the wire harness from front to back as much as possible. Then I'd unplug the lamp(s) from the fixture and see if it still draws too much current. If it does, then I'd remove the fixture from the wiring and check again. If that doesn't fix it then you'll have to follow the wiring completely from one end to the other to find the short.
