Electrical problem and 1st post

Hello my name is Lonny and this is my 1st post, so if I am in the wrong place pleas be nice and direct me to the proper place.

I have a 94 grand cherokee limited and have no working blinkers or hadzard flashers.
Heres what happened.

I was attempting to replace the old corroded trailer connection and all the wires where falling off, so in order to find which wire went to what I used my test lite.
I found the wire for the left signal and was working on the right signal when I shorted something out.
(brown wire in wire harness)

The 20am fuse for the hadzard flasher blew and I now have no signal lights or flashers.

I tried replaceing the 20am fuse and it blows as soon as I try to install it.

What did I do wrong?
Where do I start looking to resolve this problem?

Update!
10-6

I tore into the wire harness for the trailer hook up, this appears to be a factory option on this modle. I found no bare or shorted wires, than I unplugged the harness where it is located behind the inner body pannels on the rear right side. I also unplugged all 3 flasher unites from the harness.

I replaced the dual flasher found under the glove box by removeing the access door from the glove box.
Still blowing 20 amp fuse's

So I locate the multi function control for the hazards, signal, wipers, and dimmer switch and unplug it(not a fun job).
Try another 20amp fuse, this time it did not blow, hopefully when I get a replacement multi function control switch it will solve the problem.

Solved most of the electrical problem, now have signal lights working on all 4 corners, and hazard flashers on 3 corners.
Also disconnected the factory wire harness for the tow package.
