I had my taillight wiring get caught underneath my bed-frame mounts & cut before. It's a good idea to check underneath if your bulbs/sockets are all OK. You might find a bare wire shorting out someplace causing your fuses to go to hell.
Hope this helps

I had a similar problem. A sharp body panel edge had worn through the harness (of course where I could barely reach/see it) and was shorting out. It's messy, but you may have to resort to unwrapping the wires 2-3 feet forward from the light to see if the insulation is cracked/worn thru/gone.

also pull tha tailight housing out cuz that is where the wires tend to rub on the seet metal also get some grommets and stick there to keep your wiring from getting chaffed and then u won't have the gremlin come back anbd haunt ya

Oh i didin't know u had a flat bed on htere . Well that might make a bit of a differnce . Hell some rubber wire looms would work to as far as protecting the wiring from future chaff damage .
