No rear signals or brake lights

I have a 1995 Monaco Dynasty and suddenly lost the rear turn signals and brake lights (running lights work fine). Does anyone have any ideas before I go digging into it tomorrow? Any help is always appreciated.

Bad bulb or blown fuse. The filament that is used for the turn signal is also the brake filament in many bulbs.

If fuses are good pull one of the tail lights drivers side better. Make sure nothing chewing on wires.

If all the above checks out I would suspect the turn signal switch. It shouldn't be a ground issue (you still have tail lights) they use the same ground.

Are you towing something? If so, check for chaffing wires. Probably a blown fuse, the flasher unit might also fail while you're troubleshooting this. Everything should be located in your electrical bay.

Well I don't think all the bulbs blew at once. I am towing and I did lose the signals and brake lights on the trailer and coach. The brake controller is working and so are the trailer brakes so I know it is getting a feed from the brake switch through the signal switch. I hear something at the back clicking when the signals are on and that's as far as I got before it started raining badly and I left it for another day. Thanks for all the input.

I had a similar problem on one of my turn signals. I could hear the clicking from the area of the fuse box, but no turn signal. Turns out there is a blown fuse. Simply to fix, but hard to find. I have also blown the same fuse with a short in the socket for hooking up the car. On mine there is a fuse for each turn signal.

I did check the fuse panel at the front. Maybe there is another panel at the back? I have no idea but am slowly figuring this thing out a piece at a time. Thanks for all the replies.

Got it all figured out. Heard a clicking sound from the back when signals were on and upon further investigation found there is a left and right signal relay. Throughout this I also lost the tach and front step (didn't know if any of it was related). Pulled up the bed and climbed in for some inspections. After an hour of yanking and tracing wires the step started going in and out at the same rate as the signals but when you stepped on the brake it would all quit. More digging brought me to a fairly main power junction which powered a bunch or relays and circuit breakers and the connection was nasty green. Cleaned it all up and checked/serviced many others and its all fixed.

Just got lucky but the lights have never been this bright!!

Thanks for the replies,
