Help with lights!!!!!

Just got this trailer from a buddy, and am 99% positive everything worked when I got it. Noticed yesterday that my right turn and brake do not work, but the running light does. I came back to my connection and the wire from the trailer has a scuff on it and I can see wires. I taped it up to keep water off. What is my next route?!??? Do I have to trace the wire back somewhere and replace it, or replace the light. And if it's the light, how do I get to the "parts" of this type??? Sorry, I have no clue with these enclosed trailers with all this wiring!! Thank you!!!!

Check to make sure you didn't blow a fuse on the truck

Newer trucks have separate fuses for truck and trailer. You just blew the trailer fuse when wire got scuffed. Look under hood for trailer fuses.

Get a test light and check to see if plug on the back of your truck is getting power.

Make sure you have power. LED light rarely just completely go bad all together. If no power at the light then check at the back of the truck. If you do need a light any truck parts place would have them. Be sure you lube up the grommet real good before you try to put light in or you may crack it.

I would also check the back of the light on that light it should be a three prong wire that plugs into the light. I have seen where it either gets corroded, or just a loose fit. If its a loose fit you can take a small phillips head screw driver on the point to make the prong a little wider and it may make a good connection then.
