Most rigs the emergency (hazard) wiring does not go through the steering column wiring for turn signals. If emergency flashers work, then problem could be near or in column. If they don't work then it is more apt to be in wiring beyond column.
Where is your emergency flasher switch?

The switch is on the column under tturn signal arm pulling the flasher switch or signaling right blows the 10 amp fuse for the flasher

That is similar to my GM chassis.
That tells me we(you) are somewhat back to checking all lights for a shorted socket or wiring issue.
Does your rig have a wiring compartment under the driver's seat area on the outside of the rig? If so you maybe able to locate wires to isolate problem.

Not easy in respect to the frustration and time but not costly born and raised in southern California 66 years ago that probably accounts for my not figuring out things that quick thanks again
