I contacted the REV Group yesterday regarding my 2007 Knight and was told they do not have any wiring diagrams on my coach. Not happy with that answer.

Was you able to check for 12v present at the wires to the switch ?

You should have 12v there , if not then it will point you up stream towards
the fuse box outside under the driver .
If you do have voltage present then look at the headlight switch , dimmer
and things down stream .

Some coaches have relays wired into the system and I believe
they are in the elect box under the driver , they would be downstream

My headlights are grounded outside on the firewall over the generator .

Check the ground.

I had my lights fail in my 2005 Neptune and found a loose ground lug in the front area. It was actually behind a wiring loom and hard to see. I moved all the looms as much as possible and finally found a stud welded to the framing and when I checked the wires attached, I found them loose. I tightened the nut and the lights have been fine for several years now. Hope this helps.

We have Lights!

First, let me thank you all for your replies and suggestions. I did finally remove the headlight switch and checked to make sure all connections on the rear of the switch were tight. I was about to test the leads on the switch when my neighbor came over and started to move the dimmer switch up and down for switching to high beams and low and behold the lights came on. Apparently, there was a continuity issue in the dimmer switch. He said he had read this on an automotive post. We ended up spraying the end of the dimmer switch with an electrical cleaner. Tried the headlight switch and dimmer switch several more times and everything appears to be working.
