Question Rear lighting ground(s)????

Hi everyone, We took our first somewhat long(300miles) trip this past weekend from home to a state park in Alex Bay Ny., and found I have a couple of issues. First of all, My generator is not picking up fuel from the tank, not sure if there is a leak in the steel and rubber tubes from the tank to the fuel pump or if the issue is inside the tank. The fuel pump seems to be working. That one shouldn't be that bad to figure out. If its an issue inside the tank or on top of the tank, I think I'll just hook it to an auxiliary tank in one of the base compartments. Though the 2nd issue I had is the one I'm asking you guys for the help with. I lost all exterior lighting to the rear of the MH, lost tail lights, lost signal, & flashers, lost rear and side markers, lost reverse lights, everything. I drove all the way home that way. I was thinking as I was driving.......I bet its a ground(s), more than likely a single ground takes care of the whole rear lighting system. So, when I got home I removed one tail light lens and jumpered from the bulb ground to frame ground and.......there was light!!!!!, everything worked, until I removed the jumper/test lead. So.......which brings me to my question to you guys. Do any of you know where the ground for the rear is? Does it come from up front? Or, is there a wire that goes from the lighting system to the frame. It would be really easy to just make a ground to the frame, but, I want to know where its supposed to be and make sure there is no other wires that may be damaged in the same wire bundle. Any help, knowledge, or wiring diagrams would be most helpful PS-1996 Bounder model M32h I believe. Ford F53 with a 460.

Well i found the ground issue......it was a broken wire where i'm assuming someone had repaired it before. The broken wire was at a crimped ring connector screwed to the frame.

Glad you found the problem and got it fixed! I'm not sure how far back they go, but Fleetwood can provide schematics for their products. You might give them a call to see if they still have the wiring diagram for your coach. (800) 322-8216
