Brake light problem

Just picked up our 1999 Fleetwood Southwind , 36.6Ft, V10, Ford, bought it from a private individual. My wife was following me home and stopped me and said the brake lights were not working. I checked the fuse boxes and could find none marked "brake lights". Any body have any knowledge as to which fuse controls the brake lights or other things to check? (All other lights work and everything else in the motorhome seems to work just fine.)

The fuses for the chassis should be on the fire wall in black boxes. If not there; then under the dash. It will not be fun to get to.
Tip: pair of small needle nose pliers
test tight
assorted ATC mini fuses
Once you get under there you will want to have everything you need, one time!
Also, check to be sure the wiring on the brake switch, did not get knocked off.

On my 1999 Pace Arrow the fuses are in a black plastic box just over the top of the radiator. Pop the top open and you will find the daytime running light fuse and several other Ford light fuses.
