    Both are part of the trailer wiring circuit. Check the truck connection wiring for short to ground. Also, if you have towed a trailer, your trailer wiring maybe bad also, forcing a back feed that will cause a short to ground also.

    I find the vast majority of trailer wiring problems at the connection point or on the trailer being towed.

    If your electrical foo sucks, find a friend that knows or expect to pay through the nose while some dealer fiddles around with it.
