....2004 coach, you probably have a mechanical brake switch in proximity to the brake pedal or connecting linkage---switch may have stuck shut......

RJ,

Your brake light switch is stuck closed. Probably needs to be replaced. It's located in the electronics bay below the drivers seat. If it's the original it looks like the one in the attached picture. In the upper middle of the picture on the back wall is a round thing with two wires connected to it. These are no longer available and the new ones will look like the thing to it's right.

If you're talking about the switch in the center of my pic, I unplugged one of the wires from it and the lights were still on?

Yours may be different than mine, but mine is up front above the 3 air tank valves and has to wires on it. When I had my brake light problem I use a house light switch to turn the lights on without anyone sitting in the seat, flip on flip off.

In BarneyM pic you can see the round switch next to the floor at the top of the pic with the 2 small stud nuts. Mine is the same just in a different location.

Got to Anaheim CA and looking for a replacement switch! I would assume it just unscrews from the wall/airline! Anything I need to do other than dump the air and unscrew it?

That looks correct. You should not have to dump air, as the supply comes from the output of the treadle (foot) valve. Should have no pressure when brake pedal is not pressed. However if you wish to be double double safe, you can dump primary/secondary tank air.

Did you disconnect one of the wires from the old brake switch (Bendix SL5) to see if your brake lights go off? This would confirm the pneumatic/electric switch is the problem and not further downstream, possibly the brake light relay.

Since I thought it better to travel without brake lights on all the time, I pulled the fuse and turned the emergency flashers on when in heavy traffic braking! When I arrived at the RV park, I began my research based on everyone's response, put the fuse back in and found that the lights were off! So, I couldn't confirm "that" switch is the problem! Thanks for your input Brian, Barney, Old Scout and 2 Stroker! No time for the swap out today and tomorrow is another busy day, but will keep y'all posted on the results!

I replaced the switch with the new one and brakes lights go on with pedal pressure, and go off when release of pedal pressure! Just like the original design! Thanks for the help!
