Hey everyone, little embarressed having to ask but I'm at wit's end. I can't seem to figure out how to remove the cover to the fuse panel under the hood, driver's side. There is a small pump of some sort mounted to the cover. That flips back easy but the the cover itself is attached at the back end (windshield) somehow. It's impossible to see how it's connected. Hoping someone has been down this road before.
Reason I'm trying to get into the panel is the running lights on the trailer are not working. I've confirmed that the wiring on the trailer is fine. It has to be the truck. The problem started after backing the boat in a little too far with the power still connected. This is the reason I'm suspecting a fuse. The only fuse related to the 7 pin in the interior panel is a single fuse for the entire brake controller. Everything else is working, i.e. turning singles and brake lights.
Appreciate the help!

The little pump is a vacuum pump for the 4x4 hubs. As far as taking off the Fuse box lid, Iíve done it a few times and canít remember, but it wasnít hard. My truck isnít here right now, but if no one answers, Iíll take a look when it gets home.

Don't feel bad...I spent a bunch of time looking for the darn thing before I had to cave and look it up. lol.
So is that all that pump does? Just for the hubs? Mine used to make noise whenever I engaged the 4x4....now it seems to be making the noise more and more often w/o engaging 4wd. Time for a new pump? or leaking somewhere?
Thanks and sorry for the slight hijack.

There are two fuses in that panel that can affect your trailer lights. Both of mine were blown when I took delivery. The tech at the dealership said it is a common problem, he marked both fuses with a Sharpie pen so they could be easily identified. For trailer running lights, heck fuse 42 (trailer parking lamp relay).
