Brake Light switch Coachmen Catalina

Hi Guys I have a 1999 coachmen Catalina motorhome. It has a cummins 5.9liter 24valve engine. The brake lights are staying on the entire time the key switch is turned on. They go off when the key switch is turned off. I need to know where the brake light switch is located. It has air brakes. Thanks in advance for the help.

You most likely will have two of them. One covering the frt brakes and one covering the rear brakes. This way air pressure from either end can trigger the lights. Start at the foot valve (treadle valve) and work down from there. Could have one or two wires on each switch, and most likely connected between the two switches. Did you try it with the wheels chocked so the coach won't move and the parking brake off. Some Systems are wired to turn on with either the regular or parking brakes on.

Thanks for the reply I did try with the wheels chocked and parking brake off. I even drove a few miles with my wife fallowing in a car. I probably made at least 10 stops. My wife said the brake lights stayed on the whole time. I will try your suggestion. Thanks again.
