Several electrical problems

Ok,here we go again with some small problems that I can't figger out.
1) The inside step cover quit working after I replaced the carpet with wood pane. Just doesn't do anything. I replaced the switch and still nothing.I wrote down the wiring on the old switch and made sure it was correct before trying it. The durn motor is in a little compartment between the main floor and a sub floor and is above the either the fuel tank or the gennie. Is there and circuit protection for it and if so where? I can't seem to find any diagram that shows it.
2) I got a new toad and and on the first trip out,the person checking my lights for me said that I didn't have any backup lights on either the toad or the MH. We disconnected the toad and I still didn't have backup lights on the MH.Bummer.. The manual shows that the clearance lights and,I think, the parking lites are on the same circuit as the backups,but they are working. Where would the reverse switch be on my LTC?
3) I used to have a pinging sound when I when I stepped on the brakes, one ping. Now when I picked up the MH from the shop the other day and pulled out,the first time I stepped on the brake and freleased it it started pinging and only stopped when I pressed on the brake pedal. There were no warning lites on the dash or on the leveler panel and that is usually the ping from the low fluid warning. I did check the fluid level before I took it in last month and it was ok. Full.

Back up lights are not normally connected on towed, only stop/tail/turn, so I doubt the towed is the problem with the back up lights.

page 2: you should not be backing up with towed attached.

No, I don't back with the toad attached, he just put the mh in reverse to check all the lights.
It is the inside step cover that covers the step well.

I finally gave up on the pinging sound after driving to and from our campground this week and called Freightliner help. He called it right away. It's the E brake warning sensor switch,or something like that, that has gone bad and it's a switch on an air manifold over the left rear side of the axle. Pop all the air down,pull the switch and replace it and you're done.

Your backup lights have a relay controlled by the trans ECM.

Where might this relay be found? Is it in the rear electrical compartment?

The step that I'm refering to is actually not the step,but the cover that slides out from under the floor and covers the step well on my LTC so that the DW doesn't step in the hole while we're under way.

You might look in your owners manual from traidwinds for location of relay.
