While returning home last week I had a blowout on my 5th wheel that damaged the wiring passing through the wheel well. The wiring was spliced and I have all lights except running lights and tail lights (turn brake 4way all work).

I have a 2013 Chevy 2500HD diesel and have checked and replaced the fuse (#25) under the hood but still no running or tail lights.

What do I need to check next to trouble shoot this issue?

Thanks!

Check to make sure that when the wires got broken a connection up or downstream didn't get pulled out.

No test light or voltmeter?

I believe the fuse on the truck you are looking for is in the fuse box on the side of the dash on left side between dash and door.

OP Here

I tested the 7 pin plug on my truck and have power to the plug. It looks like I will have to drop my underbelly and trace the wire to find the issue.
