Parking lights staying on (common to Fords?)

I was cleaning some corrosion from the 6 pin trailer plug; everything was "off", but I thought there was a small spark.
Now the parking lights stay on, unless I kill the chassis disconnect switch above the door.
This also disables the step, but I can live with it until a proper fix can be achieved.
The unit is a 2000 Thor class A, 35', Ford F-53 chassis.
Any help or experience with similar?

Are you talking about the MH end ?

Were you using a wire brush ? The bristles conduct electricity.

The lights may be backfeeding from a hot pin, to the tail light pin, in the trailer receptacle.

Also, many times the wires come lose inside the connector.
