Start off with running lights and flashers, and see what you get, walking around the truck. Might just be a bad bulb.

All the bulbs are fine and the turn signal functions like normal
when the brake is applied the right turn signal lights up for as long as the pedal is pushed then sometimes it goes away

You have a ground issue somewhere in the brake circuit most likely. It's a poor connection and somehow grounding through turn signal circuit. Most likely the rear brake light housing.
