Ok, that’s fine, no worries. Yes I need to make sure that the diagram and owners manual I have are correct. Model year may not match. But really I think I may be able to probe each fuse fairly quickly, in all 3 little boxes and find the culprit. Again taking the leap of faith that they didn’t run the power up front to another fuse panel and then back to the trunk. I will start there. Will report anything I find interesting.

Ok I have it resolved and the answer is:
I missed the obvious!
I was using an extension on the 12 v side. So it plugged into the socket and I was pulling power from it.
I assumed (you know what that means) that it was a simple connector. No fuse.
WRONG. It had a 2.5 amp glass fuse in the tip. I didn’t know.
So the outlet was live I was just not seeing it because I was believing in this extension not having a fuse.
Anyway, I put a 6 amp fuse in it since I have multiple phone chargers attached. Probably would blow again with a pump, but I already have that direct connected direct to the battery.
Thanks for your help. I should have figured this out sooner. But it is always nice to have some experts to run a problem past. It certainly pushed me back to the core issue and made me look at everything again. Which was needed.
