A​re you sure that the fuse in the tow vehicle isn't blown?

If that is good then check the plug on the cord for any corrosion and clean them with a knife. Check the light lead which is green in the J-box for the connections on the cord. If you have a 12 vDC test light this is much easier to track down. You can check the plug on the tow vehicle with that.
