Chevy silverado lost trailer running lights

Have a 2003 Silverado 2500 PU and I was hooking up the trailer last night. I lost the trailer running lights. It seems that I lost power to the plug at the hitch. I looked at the fuse panel and cant tell which is for the running lights. I found the trailer stop and turn fuses. I see I dont have power to the constant + pin on the plug also.

Ideas?

Fuse panel under the hood. On my 01 it is the left front corner if facing the fender. I had this happen got the test light out , and all . Looked like a retard never thought to check the fuses. Yeah sure enough that's what it was.

Say Rusty Bucket, got a Q for you.

The constant pin on the 7 pin connector on the truck plug. I dont seem to have power to it. I want to use it to keep the trailer winch battery charged and a 12V outlet on the trailer.

Where is the fuse for it and/or what would it say on the panel cover

In the '03s, the factory decided to save money and not supply that fuse. IIRC, '04 and newer comes already installed. You just have to install a fuse in the slot and you'll get +12v on the pin. It will be faster for you to look at the diagram than for me to type an accurate description...
