Default Blinker issue

Just bought a 98 XL ext cab. Bed was replaced and r/s door & fender repaired.
The right blinker blinks fast then after a few moments blinks at normal speed. Will look into changing the flash relay but, not sure that would be the cause. Wth the bed replacement, I wonder if the org bed was wired for a trailer hitch. Usually fast blinker indicates a flasher relay issue in relation to additional command for trailer lights.
Will pickup the truck from the seller today. Then can start diagnosis.

Appreciate your advice in advance.

Usually if a light blinks fast it is an indicator that either the front or rear bulb is blown. It is possible that the blown bulb filament make contact intermittently so it will work normally at times. Check the bulbs.
