Answers :

There are a few fuses for the trailer tow adapter.

1st, is theodd location on the 97-98, engine mini fuse panel has a 20 A fuse forthe stop / turn lamps. Have seen it covered in tape from the factory onsome 97-98 MY trucks.
This is on page 142 in the owners 1997 manual, all the revisions for the 1998 owners manual I have seen do not include this fuse box for some reason.

This is a picture of the Power Distribution Box, additional relay box and engine mini fuse panel with the covers off. The 20A in the upper right panel with the red base, is the trailer stop/turn fuse.

The others :
1. Power Distribution Panel / engine compartment fuse panel
Fuse #1 - Trailer tow back-up and tail lamps
Fuse #16 - Trailer tow battery charge and stop/turn lamps
Fuse #28 - Trailer tow electronic brake

2. Instrument Panel Fuses ( cab fuse panel by hood release )
#23 - trailer tow battery charge relay
I was having a power problem on my 1998 Expedition EB running my trailer lights from the rear trailer plug. I had running lights, but nothing else going to my trailer. After checking fuses in the cab(all good), I went to the engine compartment and found that the large 40 amp fuse (Power Distribution Panel / engine compartment fuse panel) 4th one down from the left was the culprit. Changed it, now it works as it should. When you have a situation like mine, make sure you check all fuses and relays before doing any rewiring. This usually the problem with these tow packages.
