it's done from the inside of the passenger compartment... you may have to remove the battery first if it's on that side. oh and don't touch the bulb with your fingers ... it shortens the life of the bulb.
Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

There are a few fuses for the trailer tow adapter.
1st, is theodd location on the 97-98, engine mini fuse panel has a 20 A fuse forthe stop / turn lamps. Have seen it covered in tape from the factory onsome 97-98 MY trucks.
This is on page 142 in the owners 1997 manual, all the revisions for the 1998 owners manual I have seen do not include this fuse box for some reason.
Download a PDF version from Ford, for the 1997 MY at :
This is a picture of the Power Distribution Box, additional relay box and engine mini fuse panel with the covers off. The 20A in the upper right panel with the red base, is the trailer stop/turn fuse.
The others :
1. Power Distribution Panel / engine compartment fuse panel
Fuse #1 - Trailer tow back-up and tail lamps
Fuse #16 - Trailer tow battery charge and stop/turn lamps
Fuse #28 - Trailer tow electronic brake
2. Instrument Panel Fuses ( cab fuse panel by hood release )
#23 - trailer tow battery charge relay

Testimonial: "Thank you, thank you, thank you it was the 20 amp fuse. The lights now work! "
A code checker has to be hooked up to clear the codes after a repair. Most auto parts stores will let you use theirs at no cost. I hope this helps.

your going to have to get under it to see if it is gummed up. Spray penetrating oil liberally on those connecting rods and try to move it. Remember,,,,no matter what your manual says or the dealer that squawks about 4 wheel on the fly... come to a stop, put it in neutral then shift in to 4 wheel.
