Anyone know what fuse # the cargo area socket is?

It's not fuse #26 or 47. Is it possibly a separate fuse?

I'm extremely confused. What's the point of putting the monitor to the rear view camera in the back, right beside the rear window? This is dumb.

The outlet in the cargo area is not working. The other two inside the car are working fine though. Any ideas on what might cause this? Possibly a fuse?
