Thanks, but the fuse cover under the dash is gone, so no diagram. I did post some diagram pictures I found online, but someone posted that those diagrams are not the right ones, so I have no clue what fuse controls what. But Herk linked to an online help post that indicted the trailer fuses are under the hood. I am going to check that when I get home.

wait one min. I believe you say that the camera is working or am I mistaken. Because if the camera is working then it is not a fuse. You cant have POWER TO THE CAMERA AND HAVE A BLOWN FUSE JUST NOT POSABLE.

Nope, no camera. No nothing.

Did you check for power at the tail light terminal on the 7-way? Use a voltmeter or a 12V tester - either will work - and just go from the terminal indicated above in this string to a ground. If you have power to the terminal, then problem should be in the TT. Unhook the camera and see if the lights come back on. If so, camera is the issue, or at least the way you have it wired in.

I already unhooked the camera, so whatever damage I did is not fixed by removing it.Do I set the voltmeter to volts DC? So I put the red probe on terminal 3 of the 7-way, then the black probe on a piece of metal on the chassis for ground? A reading of zero indicates a blown fuse? Otherwise it should read 12?

1. Turn on the lights in the TV
2. Set voltmeter to DC
3. Touch the red probe to terminal 3 on the 7-way of the TV
4. Touch the black probe to ground
5. You should see 12V on the meter
6. If no voltage shown, turn on the TV ignition and turn on the flashers
7. Now check the other terminals in the TV's 7-way and you should eventually find two of them with pulsating power to match the flashers. If you don't find that, then either your ground is no good or the 7-way is not getting any power from the TV

Have you checked the box that your trailer wiring harness is attached to they put fuses in there as well. Just remove the cover and you should see 3 to 4 fuses they are made to blow before a power surge can go to the trailer lights causing more sever damage.

#7 pin check on TV

To check the #7 pin you could put your volt meter on 20 volts and stick the black lead to metal on the bumper of the TV (for a ground) and the red lead in the #7 pin hole.
If you get 12volts it is okay. If the backup power is on.

We had same type issue with a Wildcat. Turns out that there was an inline fuse hidden behind a panel where the battery disconnect is located. We would have never found it, but a quick call to Forest River helped solve the mystery. There were three or four other fuses back there, but there is no documentation or labels nothing to indicate their existence.

Easy way to hookup a rear view camera.
Buy a wireless transmitter and receiver. Walmart.com has good prices for this.
Each vehicle needs to wired separately. Mount the monitor in the cab and use your cigarette lighter for power. Wire the receiver in the truck.
Next mount your camera on the rear of your camper. Run a power cord from the camera to the camper battery. Use an inline fuse. Run the cord under the camper and use wire ties to secure them. Mount the transmitter on the outside. Connect the transmitter to the camera and power it from the power cord on the camera.
Good luck
