sorry, I am not getting 12v to the 7-way trailer plug at the rear of the truck.
My dad is pulling a fifth wheel camper and would like to the ability to re-charge the trailer batterys when hooked to the tow rig. The manual states that the wire harness for the electric brake controler is supposed to have a "mega-fuse" along with it for this purpose. His didn't have the Mega-fuse and we need to know what size to go buy.

It's either 30 or 40. Look in your owners manual, it tells you. The fuses are in the box over the driver's wheel well.

we found the spot it belongs in, but the manual says to call your dealer for the fuse.
