    I am borrowing a friends T2000 so I'm unfamiliar with the fuse panel.
    I have lost my trailer lights. I cannot find any fuse for the trailer lights. I found trailer aux but that's not it.
    This happened once before and my friend replaced a fuse. I would ask my friend except hes on vacation and I can not reach him at this moment.

    Is there another fuse panel other than the one under the glove box?

    Every KW ive ever drove didnt have a fuse for trailer lights... They had relays... Look like a little grey or black cube about 1 inch aware. Should be several on firewall under dash. Near your left foot. They unplug like a fuse but have 3 or 4 prongs instead of 2. My experience was that most time they just needed to be wiggled a little and lights started working again.

    Well I made it back to my shop with the 4 ways on. I found and switched out the trailer relay, that wasn't it. That one was in the glove box
    Going to look for more in the places you guys mentioned.

    My w9 has a trailer power fuse link beside the washer fluid bottle. I would check both ends of pigtail too.

    No fuse panel in the side boxes under the bunk in the T2000?

    Thank you everyone. Sorry I didn't get back sooner. The problem turned out to be a wet pig tail. It had rained heavily and where the cord plugs in ( on the truck side) was flooded. I tried drying out the pigtail with water repelling spray but I think it was too wet for that. I ( borrowed) an electrical line from another truck and everything worked. I have since let mine thoroughly dry out and it's working fine now too. It's never happened before when it rained but we did have an unusual amount of rain and wind
