I have a 06 6.0 and as of yesterday my 7 blade trailer plug is shot. Ive had issues with the cluster flickering and i can hear it arc sometimes back in the panel. But my main focus is being able to tow. The only wire on my 7 blade thats showing a reading on my tester is TM. I figure id have to replace the whole harness but my issue is nobody (auto parts stores) can pull up a part for it. I was wondering if someone has had the same issue and can point me in the right direction.

All trailer wiring is standard unless some guy built his own trailer and didn't follow the standard. You can get a new plug from any auto parts store. Walmart has a rv section wherte they sell plugs with a pig tail attached. You can check www.etrailer.com They have everything and maybe something plug and play.

Before you start to throw a lot of parts at it get a tester and figure out where the problem is. When you sat the trailer plug is shot do you mean busted/corroded/ cracked, or just has no power to the poles. The first thing I would do is pull the dash and figure out what is happening before a fire starts.
