Running lights problem

Okay forum people I need some help.
Left Des Moines last Wednesday evening and drove 125 miles and spent the night in a Walmart campground. Got up before dawn the next morning and took off and started blowing fuses in my tv for the 2010 Flagstaff 8524 RLS 5er running lights.
Replaced 5 fuses and they all blow after a few minutes. Luckily I don't usually tow during dark hours.
Oh, did I say that the 5er is 3 months out of warranty. It looks like the extra year warranty I bought from FR does not cover electrical.
When I change the fuse and don't plug the 5er in the fuse is fine. As soon as I plug it in and turn on the lights it blows.
Is this the trailer or the truck. Where should I start?
