2006 Escape Trailer Wiring

I've read a lot of things here concerning trailer wiring for the Escape, but nothing that applies towards mine (except the fact the dealers don't know). My 2006 came with a factory trailer wiring harness attached to the rear bumper. I traced this harness up to the driver's side tailight assembly. I went ahead and bought the factory pigtail to take that to the 4-wire flat to the trailer. But, like others I've read here, there's no power back there. The fuse panel inside the vehicle has a fuse position for "trailer lights", but, #1, there's no fuse, and #2, even more complicated, there's no contacts in the fuse box. I did verify voltage at the fuse box, but, with no contacts, I can't throw in a fuse to see if I get power to my trailer lights. Does anyone know that if I get some contacts in there and toss in a fuse, will I have power for my lights? I'm only guessing that the fuse box wiring really goes back to that harness. And, I'm only guessing there's a converter inside somewhere. But, I'm only guessing. Can anybody help? I do have a back up plan if I can't get power back there. I found a big harness that should be able to plug into everything and make it work,(from E-Trailer #30130) but I'd rather not buy another wiring harness and have to run it myself. So, has anyone been in the same boat? Come up with a good solution?
