My utility trailer wires to the right side were dragging when I got to my camp area, put them back together but my right turn signals on the trailer and camper are not working, just the right side. All other lights work including the truck right TS. Checked all fuses and bulbs. It's just the Camper and trailer right turn signal that don't work. Where should I look to fix the problem.

I know you said that you checked the fuses, but did you check the trailer turn fuse? Most of our trucks have separate blocks. Since it's on the camper and the trailer, but not the truck, I can't think of any other obvious scenario.

Check owner's manual for location of trailer connector fuses, if equipped in your make and model.
Look at this site. Slide down to the under-hood fuse block diagram.

Dragging wires could mean cut or separated wires somewhere. Run a temp wire from the truck to the trailer light to confirm. And just because the truck light works that doesn't mean the connector wire is working.

Thank you gentleman problem solved, was the fuse in the under hood power station. Was to easy for me to figure out.

Easy things can be the hardest to find!
