2011 flat four factory installed trailer harness

My ranger has been fine hooking up to trailers till today. I hooked up my 5x10 earlier today and did my normal check of all lights and noticed nothing worked on the driver side of the trailer so i jiggled the plug and it all lights started working. Ok just a fluke or so i thought. I brought the trailer to my dad and gave it to him and went and picked a new 6x12 and when i hooked that up everything worked except the passenger side running light but brake/turn worked. The salesperson looked at it and saw that the wire had disconnected so i got that fixed right away. Driving home tonight i noticed everything was working except brake/turn on driver side by this point im aggravated. So i just checked everything with a test light and im not getting power from the brake/turn wire at the light so i disconnected the trailer from the truck and checked the trucks plug and no power is coming from the driver side circut but the running lights and pass. side circut has power, now im pissed brand new truck and im having way too many issues with it. Does anybody know what it could be? By the way everything on the truck works as far as lights/turn signals.

New truck? Under warranty? take it back, let Ford fix it, after all thats why you have a warranty.

Outside of that, is the plug corroded at all?

Trust me its goin back im flippin pissed ive already had a window regulator put on it, new tires, clutch looked at because it doesnt feel right to me(claim nothing is wrong with it) and somthing else but i cant remember. The plug isnt corroded at all it still has the factory blue dielectric grease in the plug. Im just tired of having to take it back all the time. Im definatly not happy with the qaulity of this truck. However im brand loyal so i really dont want to go away from ford because of this but it seems they have built this truck very ****ty. Also when i take it in im gona have them look at the pass. side window because its doing the same thing driver side did which resulted in the regulator being replaced. I swear if its not 1 thing with this truck its another.

Do they still have that lemon law deal? The one where once you have a certain amount of issues/warranty claims etc you can swap for a another truck? Can't remember where I heard about it...
