Tail lights

I don't know what the heck is going on. When I first purchased this coach a few months ago before we made our way home I had my wife hit the brakes try the left and right blinkers and hazards while I walked around to make sure all was ok and everything worked as it should. I want to order led lights for the rear I have 18 lights back there so I wanted to see what were running lights,brake, turn etc. when my son flipped on the left blinker the reverse light blinks and when put in reverse the amber turn signal comes on. Now I know it wasn't like this a few months ago. Her is a upside down pic of my tail lights. If you click on it it may flip around.

Most likely a wiring issue at the lights connection.

Have the tow lights wiring been changed since your first observation?

A bad ground IN one or more of the rear bulb sockets, (or a bad/corroded ground or positive wire, or connection, TO one or more of the rear bulb sockets), can cause that.
Since cleaning everything up and applying dielectric grease at the connections and into the bulb sockets, I have not had that problem for 5+ years.

ROTFLMAO just got back from doctors and have been thinking about this all night and day. Went to coach and put hazards on went back to check and the same. Took a good look and my son was cleaning the lenses inside and out and re installed the amber and reverse in wrong spot. How stupid after looking at it to not realize it yesterday

That's it...he probably looked at the upside down picture when he re-installed them. LMFAO. This is the only forum when I post pics they are upside down.

that was how mine was happened... when i was doing class b dl at dmv, the tester walked around to check lights before road test while i was in cockpit to flip the signal levers. she said we couldn't go on as your tail lights were wrong. well i had to drive home that time. first i thought it was bad wiring. after googled the images of cc's tail light layout, i found out mine was mis-mounted. who knows who did it...
