no power at 7 pin trailer tow adapter

Recently was using the aux power outlet in the cab and lost power, but cannot find the fuse that powers this outlet. Additionally, I now have no power at the 7 pin trailer light adapter.

Are they on the same fuse?

Thank you

Do you have your owner's manual? If not, download it.

https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp

It lists all fuse and relay locations.

Yes I have downloaded the owners manual, but am not clear which fuse powers this. Are theses devices - Aux power port and 7 pin tow adapter - linked and on the same fuse? There are 2 aux power outlets in the cab - 1 is on a 20A fuse, which has been replaced and is working, however, the other is not working.

The power port in the dash is powered by the cigarette lighter fuse. If that pops, the OBD2 port won't work either.

I think the tow fuses and relays are all in the PDB under the hood.

There are 2 power ports in the dash. 1 has a 20 amp fuse which has been replaced and works, the other power port - on the left - does not work and this is the fuse I cannot find. it may coincidence, but when this power port quit, the trailer lights quit also.

The 2 power ports in the dash are on separate fuses.
