No problem at all. That is what we are here for. :)
If all filaments in bulbs are lighting then my suggestion would have to be to replace the brake light switch. You CAN adjust them if you feel this will help.
Brake light switches are mounted on brake pedal arm. When brake pedal is not in use, it depresses the switch's plunger [holding the switch OPEN] shutting off the brake lights. When the pedal is depressed it allows the switch plunger to extend, closing the switch and allowing electrical current to the circuit and the brake lights illuminate.
Switch is mounted by screwing a threaded nipple on the switch into a threaded hole in a mounting bracket. This switch is adjusted by screwing the switch further out or in.
For wire troubleshotting you should check around the trailer connector for a short. Also under the bumper should be a harness that splits off the taillights. Take a circuit tester and check for shorts here as well.
The high mount (third) brake light is not wired through this switch but the two brake lights are. The switch also cancels the brakes for turn signals and hazard lights and it will wear out eventually.
Hope this helps.
