If you have a blown fuse, normally there is a circuits issue in the circuit being powered by the fuse.

So, if you do find a blown fuse, be sure to buy a pack of replacement fuses so that you can have spares on hand.

Also, one should really go through each of the typical 3 circuits - i.e. tail and clearance lights; left turn and stop lights; right turn and stop lights.

If you do find a blown fuse, you likely have a wire with worn insulation that is shoring out intermittently and blowing the fuse.

Best wishes.

If you do need to do circuit checking and wiring and lighting work on your boat trailer, it is so much easier and much faster, if you can have the boat off the trailer in the water somewhere as you do your work on the trailer.
Take wire, fuses, insulation and tape with you to the body of water where you normally launch your boat. Then, with the boat off the trailer and in the water, you can quickly go through your trailer and deal with its issues.

Even if you decide to rewire the trailer and put new light fixtures on your boat - as long as you have your tools and test equipment with you, it is so much quicker with nothing on the trailer.

It ended up being two fuses. #67 and #73 under the hood next to radiator
#67 got all the lights back on and #73 then allowed the blinkers and brake lights to start working.
