Need help! Trailer lights

Hey guys, need some help here. Just bought my first diesel, a 2008 Crew/long 6.4/auto truck. Love it so far, but I hooked up to my trailer and I have no power at all to the trailer lights. Tested at the truck plug, nothing. No running lights or turn signal/brake lights. Trailer brakes work fine. Is there a fuse specific to the lights? Truck plug isn't corroded and everything seems to be hooked up.

I have an 01 superduty and it has seperate fuses under the hood for the trailer lights. not sure if your truck is the same. check owners manual should list them.

Yep, that was it. I had looked at the fuse panel inside but everything was OK. Didn't know about the one under the hood. Man they hid that thing in there well. My 04 Super Duty only had a fuse panel inside, but it was a V10. Both fuses were blown, popped new ones in and it works like a charm.

Thanks for the help!

Now I have to fix the tow/haul switch.

There are but I dont know about them. They may be in a seperate fuse box? I'm assuming you've checked the wiring and connections at the rear?
