The trailer plug in the Jeep may be wired wrong. Make sure the tail light plug is connected to the jeep taillight circuit. Some trailer plugs include a "hot" wire that allows the trailer to run a few accessories. Your trailer tail lights may be connected to that circuit.

There are nuts under each hinge. Take those off and then you can just lift the door straight up. there is also a switch inside the door that is for the interior lights.

What steps do I have to take to tow a jeep 1981 CJ7 with a standard transmission.?

Buy a tow bar. Install the tow bar cleats to the front bumper of the Jeep. Attach the tow bar with the removable pins and then connect the ball connector to the ball hitch of the towing vehicle. Run safety chains from the tow bar to the hitch loops of the towing vehicle. Make sure you lock the ball connection with either a nut & bolt OR a padlock. Put the Jeep in 3rd gear, make sure the hubs are NOT locked. Put the key in the ignition and unlock the steering wheel. Drive slowly, try to stay on streets and don't do too much highway driving. If towing at night, it's a good idea to use trailer lights - in some states you need trailer lights any time you tow - day or night. Good luck.

2002 Tahoe trailer brake and blinkers work but no running lights any suggestions or ideas would be helpful?

Take a light tester and check the pins at the truck side trailer plug. With the truck set for running lights check for power at the pins. If there is power then there is a loose or bad wire on the trailer side. If there is no power then there is a power problem on the truck side.

Will lights in a series circuit will stay lit if one goes out?

Like the old Christmas tree lights, no; lights connected in series will not stay lit if one (or more) are either burned out or disconnected from the circuit. Lights in series are connected "head-to-tail". Take one out, and the circuit is incomplete and will not work.
