No brake lights on 2008 Contessa

2008 Contessa. We have no brake lights on the coach. Have turn signals, taillights, headlights, markers everything else just no brake lights.
Have checked all the fuses. They all seem to look good however, can someone pinpoint the exact fuse that this would be? Also is there some other place to be looking for a possible pressure sensor something along that line?

I'm familiar with a few different configurations; my present coach has 2 taillight assemblies on each side of the coach. They are stacked, one above the other. When my brake-lights went out, it ended up being the removeable socket. I don't know why, but one socket on each side was corroded - both were for the brake-lights. I never had a fuse blow.

having same issue on my 06 HR Imperial (also 2 stacked assemblies on each side). Hazards work, turn signals work, tail lamps work, but NO brake lights on right side. did you remove each bulb and check the socket and how did you remove corrosion?

checked my bulbs and sockets, all was good. a small dab of dielectric grease and put it all back together. in the past i've had good luck using wd40 and a battery terminal brush, then the grease with reassembly
