    Why would they flame you?

    One thing to look at with your problem... If it was a dead short, the fuse would blow right away. And if it blows while not moving it is not an intermittent short. So something is drawing too much juice and heating up the circuit. Once the circuit gets to a certain temperature, the fuse blows. (that's how fuses work)

    That thing under the dash that get's hot may have something to do with trailer lights. Some vehicles have what is called a "Memory Circuit" that is there so that when you hook up a trailer the turn signals don't flash too fast. You said that the problem persists even with that out. Maybe you have a short in the trailer wiring or in the trailer plug itself. That would heat up the memory thingy and with that thing out would still cause the problem.

    Give that a whack...

    If you still have a problem then it's time to go to a dealership or an automotive wiring specialist before the truck burns on the side of the road...
