    Look for a bad ground connection

    Check the trailer plug wiring.

    Pull the bulbs and check for power at the socket. Check all connections in the rear of the truck for water or corrosion.

    On every vehicle that I buy, new or used, I open all connectors and put a dab of silicone grease inside. Never had a connection related problem after doing so. Well, providing the connections weren't all corroded to hell to begin with.
