Fog Lights

My fog lights are on a spring loaded momentary rocker switch. My lights are not coming on. The running lights do (controlled by on / off running light switch. With the momentary switch, there must be a relay somewhere, does any one know where it is ?
Also the indicator light is out on the running light switch (if there is a light in it)

Welcome to the National group!
Your initial problem is the switch should not be a momentary switch (have you looked at the lights when the switch is held depressed?) this will tell you at least the lights work. Easy to change the switch without removing the panel - just pry easily with a flat blade, mark your wires then replace with a fixed pole switch available at most auto parts store (lighted and non lighted) for less than $10. Ask me how I know.....

tufftj, that is the information I needed. When I first purchased the rv, I didn't remember the fog lights being on a rocker swt. The swt is acting just like a spring loaded rocker now, interesting.
Before I started taking screws out and chasing down something that may not even be there, I thought I would ask the question.

Ok, I'm sure I know the answer........ but how do you know ?

I've spent many an hour changing out switches. Seems they don't last long unused or in storage here in FLORIDA DUE TO THE HUMIDITY. The more they are used, the better.
