As hokey as it sounds, It should work just fine.  It won't blow any
fuses if the wiring is hooked up correctly, because there is no short
circuit from 12V to ground.

Here is an ASCII art schematic diagram of the idea.  You need a
fixed (non-proportional spacing) font to view this correctly.

                     X side marker bulb
     flasher relay   |
 12V -----+/ +-------+
		     X turn signal bulb
 GND ----------------+
