Sounds like the brake light switch or the small stopper that the plunger hits has been moved.

SOURCE: no brake/hazard lights,have running/turn signal lights

Suggest you change hazard flasher 'can' first, then go to the hazard switch. I'm betting it's the flasher can.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Ram 2500, no running lights on trailer

The truck is protecting itself from the load impose by the trailer.. Chk the plug on the truck for wire gauge size. Turn any electrical loads off on the trailer, any and all. If fuse still blows then the fuse is either underated or the trailer has a dead short. In fact turn trail main power panel of. All lights work you say. So ck the inverter for defect byturning off the inverter on one of the trailers.

SOURCE: bed brake lights don't work

This is because your brake light switch has gone out. There are two sides to the switch one goes to the two main lights and the second goes to the third light. This is a common problem but is an easy and inexpensive part to replace. It is located on the brake pedal and can be changed in just a few minutes. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

At the top of the brake pedal is a switch that may have moved and it has an adjustment to it that is causing the switch to stay open. The switch is adjustable.By turning it in clockwise it should reset. Otherwise you will need a new brake light switch.

My brake lights (rear) remain on even when truck

Your brake switch should be above your brake pedal. For Nissan it will look like a silver cylinder about 3/8" wide. You can try adjusting it down so it better contact the brake pedal in it's up position. It is threaded with a locking nut. If adjustment doesn't work, go for replacement. Good luck and hope this helps.
