Question Fuse Block - trailer harness

I have a '08 Tuscany (4076)... I damaged the 7-pin trailer plug when I drug it going through a low spot. I have since replaced it and wired the replacement just as the original had been wired. Now I do not have power to the new plug for stop lights and/or turn signals. I suspect a short must have occured and blew a fuse. Is there a seperate fuse block (or inline fuse) for the trailering harness? I have checked the fuses located in the Battery Control Center compartment (outside compartment in front of front wheel) as well as the house fuse panel located in the bedroom. What am I overlooking?

i have to laugh a little...i did the exact same thing on our first big trip heading into the weigh station
there is a frame harness interface up high on the passenger side that the original plugged into, its on the frame about 1 foot or so in.
plus under the "HOOD" up front is another fuse block...yes i know, no mention of it in the books. check the fuses there.
also in the E-bay under the drivers seat accessed from outside there are several black boxes with fuses..not just one big one on the rear wall, i know you probably checked them...but that is the only other place for power feed to the harness
pull the fuse and ohms check it and the check the relays in the same area.
also there is one under the dash far left side forward, near the trailer harness breakout connector
hope it helps

There is a fuse compartment where my shore power cord is stored, along with
the transfer switch. It is black plastic, 6" x 8" or so. It contains the
fuses for the tow harness. There is a schematic inside the cover.
I have a 2008 Tuscany 4076. Hope this helps.

thanks macadnphyl, i figured that box was just engine management...
learned a new one today

I went out and pulled the panel off the areins box cover, my f/l book is cryptic
however
connector 3 has 8 wires
and under the cover its even more confusing

the HOT out appears to be position 3h (ign out tow)
could have just said + out
funny thing is this connection box does not the brake feed for trailer brakes in it....the connector is under the dash, but where o where is the power for it on a fuse block .
anyway
the pin out is as follows
3a rev tow
3b extra
3c extra
3d extra
3e r turn out
3f marker out
3g l turn out
3h ign out tow

Thanks to all... got my problem solved today. Driver's side, rear compartment. Yep, the one that contains your shore power cable. You'll find a little black box... remove the screws and work the cover out from under the wires. There they are - the fuses for the trailer harness (They are labled inside the cover). I had two blown and quickly solved my problem after finding them. This is a Freightliner item so not any mention of it in any of the Damon material. Again, thanks to all.
