Funny response. First thing i do is jiggle the haness, then pull it apart and reconnect it. Also spray the slots with WD40.

Do the tail lights on your motorhome still work? If they do then it's somewhere from the Rear bumper back.

Next step would be to check the fuses in the outside compartment drivers side below the drivers window. If it's the same as my '01, then that's where the light fuses are. And relays. I have had a couple of the relays go bad and have some spares. I would also advise getting some spare fuses of all sizes, mini and full size. I also carry spare bulbs of all the popular sizes in your rig.
