2000 Southwind signal lights

I have a 2000 Southwind 34N. Everything works fine, except the right turn signals.
All the "blinkers" work except the front right "main" the corner one, or the one on the mirror. The rear ones work fine.
I hear the relay ticking, it's just the standard tick. It doesn't do the speed tick thing that you hear if a bulb is burned out.
Any suggestions on where to start??
I've chased down the conduits heading into the coach.
Is it possible there's a fuse on the "secondary" side of the relay for just the front lights?

I would be more inclined to think that the the bulbs in question , share a common ground as well as power wire and that checking the main socket for power using the vehicle frame as a ground , with a test light, will tell you if your looking for a power supply problem or a ground issue.
Do the park lights work on that set of bulbs?

Because of the number of bulbs involved, your coach may not have a load sensitive flasher, that would do the faster flash for a burnt out bulb.

Park/running lights DO work.
Interestingly, the bulb in the front is the amber 1157 (I think), the one on the corner is a park/running "peanut" style single element bulb that blinks off/on with the signal. Park light works, just no blinky. Didn't pay any attention to the one on the mirror, if the left one is a park light, or if it only blinks with the signals.

Peanut style is a #194 bulb, try switching the front signal bulbs side to side and see if the problem moves with the bulb.

I'll give it a shot, & see what happens. It's certainly easy enough to get to. I forgot the number on the peanut bulb. I had a Chevrolet truck with those in sockets that plugged into the back of the dash onto a circuit board.
