the only fuse it blowing is the fuse for the dash/backlights, and i haven't worked on anything but put a fuse in the cig. lighter because it went out. after that, that's all i've done.

Which fuse # is blowing?

----------

In the meantime, if its taking out your taillights, the usual culprit is a corroded trailer light harness plug. They get wet, corrode, and cause the parking light circuit to short to ground. Clean it or cut it off.
