The alternator may be over charging. Have seen this several times over the years, causing bulbs to blow. Is a bit strange rear bulbs only.

You got great ideas and seem to have it solved but one suggestion that wasn't made was that brakes are for wimps, and why would I turn if I'm on the right road?? Not a very good suggestion but my point was that the best weapon is to keep smiling. This didn't seem to get you down at all which is a good lesson for all of us!!

Anyone have any ideas? I've been through every fuse box I could find, the one by driver's left foot and the one in the forward compartment infront of the engine...are there more fuses?

I'm at a loss,

Thanks,

I'll bet you it's a bad ground for the tails . more often then not they undercoat the frame before putting the ground on and then you get poor contact . pull the ground, scrap down to metal then reattach

This reply makes no sense to the electrical problem.
Who are you talking to?
Did you accidently write it in the wrong thread?

I have seen my share of corroded light sockets on trailers... reminded me of last February in FL, my neighbor camper saw me working on my TV, and inquired if I was a mechanic... I asked his problem and he showed me that his headlights, turn signals and rear taillights were all crazy... not responding correctly to what he turned on or used. He had paid some Camping World to diagnose his older motorhome and they told him it would take a new wiring harness and about $1,000 of labor to correct... they only charged him $300 for diagnosis.

Turns out the rear taillight sockets were corroded, the front side turn signal light sockets were corroded and one of the headlight sockets was badly corroded and one of the wires to the other headlight had a bad crimp... I found the bad crimp by wiggling the wire bundle and a wire fell off of the connector.

After cleaning the sockets with some sandpaper I happened to have and using his wife's nail file to clean the socket for the headlights all of the lights started working again. It took about an hour to clean the sockets and get all the lights checked out and working. He was so greatful... He asked me why and how I knew to look at the light sockets... my response was to look at the simple solutions first and make sure all of the bulbs were working and making good contact... something some repair shops obviously don't know how to do.

Rear lights not working...

Thank You Iggy! For some reason it took me a while to find page 2 of this thread....much much appreciation for the manual and other documents. rsdata, yes the entire rear light assembly on both sides were corroded and are being replaced with LED assemblies. I think I'm going to check the front light assemblies considering the state of the rear...

Thanks again all, I hope this thread will be helpful to others that may run in to the same problem. It's the beauty of forums - stored, accessible and free knowledge available to share and help our RV communities.

Sincerely,
George Moureau
