Help!!! Where is the fuse for clearance lights?

I'm wiring into the clearance lights and stupidly cut through a pair of wires at the same time while the lights were on. That apparently blew a fuse but I don't know where. Labels on fuses in the interior panel seem unrelated. Where else will I find it?

Thats because the Fuses for the trailer clearance lights are in your vehicle.

I figured that out before coming back to my computer to respond. I found a blown 20A fuse labeled for T-Tow running lights and replaced it, but still no good. I checked voltage at the 7-pin and there's nothing there. I checked the fuse again and it's still good, as are all the others I can find.

I was having a bit of a crisis because I intended to return my trailer to storage tonight, tomorrow being a work week. I can't do that now but am taking my car for repair tomorrow for unrelated reasons. I'll just have to get up early to drop off the trailer in the AM before going to work.

Thanks for your help.

If your Dodge is like my Chevy, each lighting circuit (running, left, right, backup) has it's own fuse. Suggest you keep checking fuses.

At this point I'm giving up. The brake lights work so I'll just take it to my storage lot and park it in the AM. I'm taking the TV to a mechanic tomorrow for unrelated reasons. I'll let them figure it out.

X2 most newer trucks have 2 sets of fuses, one set for the truck and one set for the trailer.

I finally fixed it. Yes, they were fuses under the hood of the Durango. I thought I had checked the one that finally fixed it. Apparently not.
