Reverse lights and warning buzzer

I'm new here to the forum. I have a 2006 Holiday Rambler Ambassador we have owned for about a year now. We were out over the weekend and noticed the reverse lights and warning buzzer do not come on anymore. Is there a fuse somewhere for these, looked in the owners manual in the fuse panels and did not see one labeled as such, any ideas?

Welcome to the forum, might take a look in the engine compartment driver side, electrical box with 4 screws holding access cover.

If you can get to the connector for the reversing light, you can use a meter to check the voltage when it's supposed to be on. If no voltage and you 're sure all fuses are good there could be a corroded/looose connection or a break in wiring.

If you get voltage, next thing is to check resistance of the bulbs... unlikely but it could be both bulbs burned out and the buzzer stopped at the same time.

Thanks, I'll have to get my meter out and start checking if it ever stops raining here. Outbound, our Ambassador has a rear radiator so all I see when I open the back is the radiator, intercooler and access to the fill ports for water, oil, and hydraulic fluid, do not see any other access points or plates, do I need to go underneath?

Outbound's Exec and mine side-radiator coaches ( except he has 100 more horses ). So there are fuses and other electrical components accessible inside that engine bay door.

With a rear radiator coach you may have a different setup. I am trying to recall the way my Diplomat was set up.... In a door under the driver's window, I think you'll find a fuse box with most of those fuses. If there's a blown fuse that's definitely a place to look.

Even with the rear radiator, you should be able to access the connectors to the backup lights and to the backup buzzer, so you can do those meter tests on them.
