Fuses and breakers

2000 MADP on a Spartan chassis.

Got hooked up to the toad this morning and had no tail, parking, or clearance lights on the coach or toad. Headlights worked on high and low beam. Clearance lights work with the ICC switch. Headlights would not turn off with the headlight switch, but if I hit the ICC switch the headlights went off and stayed off. I cannot find any fuses, relays or breakers marked tail, parking, or head lights in the panel in the top of the dash.

Does anyone know where they are?
Anyone have any ideas other than fuses, relays and/or breakers?
Anyone have a drawing of the headlight switch?

There is another panel in the generator compartment with 3 fuses (2 70 amp and 1 40 amp) and 3 relays but nothing is marked.

Thanks
Mike

On my Essex I blew the fuse that Newmar added on top of the Chassis batteries so the lights would work with the key off. Had a short in the flex cord from MH to Toad. Looked for fuse for 3 hrs. It is in a non-marked black fuse holder right off the batteries. I hope that is where yours are.

Mike,
The actual headlight switch is a General Motors part that was used in every GM car/truck from the early 60's until they went to the column mounted stalk type in the late 70's. Do a Google search for a 1965 Corvette wiring diagram and you will find schematics that will show how they are wired. Good luck.

In some DP's there are fuses hidden behind a Velcroed compartment fabric, compartment ahead of the drive wheels driver side, your BIRD System control maybe there also.

Update

Found 3 fuse boxes in the generator compartment and 2 in the inverter compartment. All fuses check good. There are a total of 3 relays and fuses labeled marker lights. I am emailing Spartan to determine which particular relay should energize when the headlight switch is pulled.

Problem solved

There were 2 problems. A blown 15 amp fuse labeled Marker Lights kept the headlights from turning off when the headlight switch was pushed in and a loose wire in the ICC switch kept the marker lights from turning on with the headlight switch.
