Not the PDM but a tail light problem on the Toad

Just had my recalled PDM replaced earlier this month and most all my electrical issues solved and have not reoccurred. However I now can't get the Driver side brake light or turn signal to work on the toad when connected to RV. It was working for the first week of this trip but discovered when going thru this mornings light ck. worked on the obvious things (connection cleaned and checked) this evening put no luck.
Could someone tell me where the fuses for the tow connection be located in my 2019 DSDP and any tips as to what to look for. No I don't have not used a tester on the plug-in yet because I left it at home, I know I know get another one! Told the DW this would be a easy fix, but I am needing someone to bail me out!

Hi - You didn't mention which chassis you are on but if it is the Spartan I believe you will find chassis fuses in the last compartment on the passenger side. Can't help on the Freightliner, haven't had one since about 9 years ago.

This is very funny, the exact same thing happen to me the other day. The drivers side as well. In that the PDM box you have a bunch of fuses, on mine it is a 20 AMP circuit breaker fuse. All fuses are marked inside the cover. I replugged toad in and it worked, maybe I didn't have it plugged in correctly. I will know for sure tommow morning. Hope this helps

Could also be a problem with your towed umbilical plug where the male pins got squeezed together and did not make good contact with the rv female plug. Spread the two pins a hair and the lights came on.

Thanks for the tips, Guys. Those are the exact type tips I was looking for. Will give that a try and see what happens!

Found the fuses, circuit breakers and relays , all checked out OK. Again checked the connections and lo and behold a bent male connector was discovered in the outlet for the umbilical.lesson to be learned, always double check what you are double checking!
