Exclamation No Trailer running, brake, or turn signals

We have no tail lights, brake lights or turn signals on Sunseeker 3050S, Traveling without owners manual. We assume it's a fuse, but we need help!

Wow pretty unusual to lose all those lights at one. They are fed by 3 different fuses (1 tail, 1 brakes, 1 for turn) makes me wonder if some wires got shorted to blow all of them? did you find fuses blown? Another possibility is a loose connection at the ground for these lights, if the fuses are good take the lens cover off the back lights and use a volt meter to test for voltage at the bulb you may have to remove the bulb and use a bare spot on the frame for testing ground (with lights turned on) if you have 12 voltage to the bulb and the bulb is good then you will need to track down the bad ground connection.

The common wire to ALL the lights is the white ground wire.

An open there will cause all lights not to work.
Look in the metal junction box where the heavy black hookup wire enters for the white wire that goes from the plug to the camper's lights.

Herk are you sure on this one, remember OP is asking about a MH not a TT?

There has to be commonality even with the motor home.
I doubt all the individual systems could fail at once.
Without a wiring diagram it is pure guesswork.

Money is still on a ground; just no idea where.
I think I have a MH diagram in the Herkbrary, but it is in the camper packed for Goshen. Will look tomorrow.
