If we want to be technical they are Tail, marker or clearance lights or lamps.
I don't believe there are any fuses for them in the trailer but there should be in the TV. If those are good and if none of these lights are working check connections at both sides of plug wiring, trailer junction box and all grounds. Since that is the circuit with the most bulbs a weak ground will effect it first. JM2, Hank

Look under your hood at those fuses. I believe those go along with the plug.

Lights are controlled from the brake controller via the 7 pin. There are no individual fuses for the lights. You say the plug is good, but some contacts can be bad. I know..

Make sure the battery switch is turned on if you have one. One if the pins in the plug will have 12V on it. Get a pinout for the plug and a jumper wire and jump 12V to each of the other pins and check each light function. This will also establish if you have good grounds on all of your lights.

I had a 7 pin plug(trailer end) go bad on a trip. The TV message said trailer disconnected and I had no trailer brakes, but all of the lights functioned normally.
Trailer manufacturers use the chapest plugs they can get, usually Bargman, which have some incompatibilities with some tow vehicle plugs. It took mine two years to act up.

If you haven't fixed the problem yet and you have no blown fuses, I recommend checking the running ugh circuit with a voltage meter at the 7 pin adapter on your tow vehicles. If you have voltage there, then the problem is in the trailer plug or trailer wiring.
If. You have no blown fuses in the tow vehicle and no voltage at the 7 pin adapter, then there is a wiring problem in the tow vehicle.
I would start there.

Sorry, everytime I guess what the poster talking about my replies are wrong. I know what tailights and vehicle parking lights are. Hopefully the truck connector was checked with a test light.
