All running lights go off and on about every 5 minutes

I have a 1999 Gulfstream Sun sport Ford Chassis, The lights started go off and then will turn on. I have Day time headlights so I can't tell if they're working on not. I replaced the Headlight switch and replaced one a relay which I thought be an issue but it still is going off and on. Can't find a wiring diagram. Called Gulf Stream and haven't heard back from them. Called a dealer and they told me good luck. The Brake lights and turn signals do work. And messing around I have 2 cigarette lights on the dash and for my GPS and charging cellphone and somehow dropped something in one and they don't work now. Now fuse is blow that I can find and the radio doesn't work. I think this runs off the coach somewhere. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jaxson

The lights going out and coming on again sounds like an auto reset circuit breaker. Usually Ford RVs have a fuse/relay box under the hood for all chassis functions, although sometimes found under the dash.

On the lighters, unplug the wire from the back of the dash for the one you shorted out by dropping something in it. If they weren't factory installed, there may be an in-line fuse in the wiring, you'll have to trace it back to where it's connected to 12 v(+).

Gulf Stream usually wired the dash radio to work from chassis or house batteries by way of a dashboard switch, might be labeled by a music note. If so equipped, try the radio after switching to other source. It's failure might be the result of the other issues you report.

Auto breaker is very likely if the lights go out instantly and come back on instantly at regular intervals. If however they gradually fade off or are "sputtering" and then come on again later then it could be a poor connection somewhere that is getting hot, breaking the circuit, cooling down and the circuit makes again

A short in the light circuit is tripping the relay. Try removing the bulbs/connectors on that circuit till it stops the cycle, then you've found the problem.
