Question Trailer connector

Hi All. I've gone over the schematics from FR and am not seeing where there may be a fuse for the rear trailer connector. I've lost power back there and I'm hoping it's only a fuse.
Can anyone help??
Many thanks!

Try this. Don't know where the blocks are but at least you may find the fuse you are looking for

Thanks niedobry1. That fuse is for the turn signals but, what about main 12V power to the plug?

On my GT when I was blowing fuses due to a short and lost power at the 7 way connector at the rear, I think they found the fuse was located in the fuse block up front in the engine compartment.

Based on the link that AD2 posted, I think it might be fuse 17 under the steering column. If not, just take a test light down there and check them all without pulling them individually.

The confusion has really set in, LOL
The chart AD2 posted is for a 2015 F53. Looks as tho' the fuse locations change randomly.
I now have a 2014 30DS but, after some investigating I find that my chassis is a 2013 (build date 8/13).
I have diagrams for a 2013 and 2014 and the fuse locations are the same for each year.
#17; Body builder radio feed, 5A
#22; Trailer tow turn signals, 20A. I pulled this fuse and it's good
Now, #16 shows it's for, Body builder battery (+12V) feed.
I haven't pulled it yet but, could this fuse be the one? I'm going to check it next time I'm at the coach but if anyone has an idea, I'm listening (can you tell I'm not that up on electrical stuff? LOL).
Appreciate all the help!
