Tail lights, clearance and parking lights not working

Another problem has cropped up on my '99 GS Sun Voyager bus, Spartan chassis, dp. The clearance lights, trail lights and parking lights (in front) no longer come on. Headlights work fine; dash lights work fine; turn signals and sop light work just fine. The Spartan chassis has 2 places electricals; in the bay directly under the driver and in the bay on the passenger side, where the power inverter is kept. I have checked every fuse, breaker and relay, labeled marker lights or not, and all check out fine. New headlight switch; still no lights. Since, as we know, Gulfstream is not forthcoming with info, I am hoping any of you might have an idea. I have crawled under the dash and checked for broken circuits as there seem to be a few more butt connectors splicing wires on this coach than I have found to be "normal" None on the headlight switch wiring.
Ideas??

(Generally) FRONT parking, TS and running lights are FUSED under the DASH, and fed by the HL switch, WHEREAS rear lights are relay controlled, tied to trailer harness, and FUSED under the HOOD. Be aware of rodent damage, also, as they often chew wires in the warmth under the hood. Luck to ya :-)

Thanks! My Spartan DP chassis has the fuses in a different location.

Main Point is that Front/ rear fused separate, and rear often RELAY controlled vs direct to switch; I chased wires wasting time once to find a blown fuse that I thought I had checked x3 times previous... but also, CHECK TRAILER HARNESS for damage, esp. if you tow?????????

Thanks.. There is obviously something not right. My son came over to help, and we hooked up the new trailer. All was well on the brake lights, but turn signals blinked opposite sides, right on coach blinked left on trailer. When it warms back up, we will be checking grounds and all wiring. I have checked relays, and all appear to be ok. Thanks for the help.

There may be a control box left side of steering lower fire wall, controls wipers, cruise control and lights. While on trip lost the lights. I could not find the issue. installed a relay to by pass the box and run my lights. lost my steering wheel light controls but at least I could turn on my lights when I needed them. I had tried replacing box, but my issue is somewhere in the wiring, I have an all weather coach so all my wires are buried in insulation foam

Thanks, DDP. I will check underneath the dash again. Have been hampered by weather here in Oklahoma. I suspect it is in the dash somewhere.
