chassis light problem

I have a 2003 40' coach,Alpine, all exterior lights come on and off at random while parked. Also rear view camera display flashes on and off when pressing the foot brake when headlights are on. Any ideas? Naomi

If all the lights and rear view monitor worked okay previously, then I would be suspicious of a loose 12V connection somewhere. Start at the battery compartment and start checking for loose connections. Also, check various connections under the dash and behind the panel in front of the passenger seat.

I'd start with the control box for the Smart Wheel. As you know, it controls headlights and wipers - probably other things too. And remember, always check the ground connections first because they are the most likely suspects.

Do you have fuses behind the dash cover in front of the passenger's feet of do you have 2 "boxes" that say Vansco on them?
