Could be for high beams if not in stalk. Seem to have power to and through HL switch. Wiring both power and grounds or relay seems like remaining causes. Are lamps good?

Might be the ground. I had a problem with my headlights a while back and traced out the ground. I found FR had used a self-tapped trim screw to the frame. The only thing making contact was the threads which had oxidation on them. No paint had been removed where the cable touch the frame. Wire wheeled off some paint, drilled a hole and bolted that cable to the frame. Sprayed battery terminal protector over it and it's been good ever since.

You remove the switch with a putty knife or trim tool, insert in bottom edge and pry outward. You can unplug it and take it to any Dodge dealer for a replacement.

As I understand the button on the Freightliner wheel is to flash your headlights/high beams.

I would be most suspicious of the steering wheel button or the relay it controls.

Remote possibility that the headlights are burned out also.

Don't know if the headlamps are good that was the only thing I didn't check when I got the motorhome. The fog lights go on even if the switch is not pulled. The parking lamp in the headlight only goes on when the emgency flashers are going.
I will switch a couple more relays it has to be in there or there is a relay I am not finding.
Looking at the picture of the switch what is it am SUPPOSE to be turning on going all the way to the right? and what cargo lights on the roller switch? It's not my bay lights they have another switch by the door.
This is not my first motorhome or trailer. I just don't have a manual for this Tsunami
Thanks for help.

unless frieghliner used the cargo light relay for something, I suspect it does nothing. But that is how I know the switch is for a Dodge p/u. The switch itself looks the same (and BTW uses the same plug in the back) for virtually all mid to late 2000 Chrysler products. The rotary goes up to first detent which is dome lights on, second detent is cargo light.

From left to right - off - parking lights - headlights on. The pull function is only for fog lights and should only pull out when in park or on.
