Brake lights on on 1999 tropi-cal 34' don't work.

hello all,

the brake lights on our new-to-us 1999 tropi-cal 34' do not work.

tail lights & four-ways work...have power to trailer light socket...all related fuses and relays tested working (under dash, hood and compartment by entry door).

am in process of hunting down wiring harness...

any one had similar problem? all ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Check that the switch on the brake pedal is working when you push down on the pedal. If not adjust to make it work. If you have some spray electrical contact cleaner try it on the switch also.

Use a volt meter to check for 12 volts at brake pedal switch. If you don't have a volt meter, get one for your RV tool box. If no voltage at switch find the fuse box and check fuse. A faulty/misadjusted brake light switch is the most common cause for no brake light issues, it will also cause the cruise control not to work.

Rear turn lights use same 'element' as brake lights...so if turn lights
work, then as previous posts say, test brake light switch.
..inside fuse box is located just to the left of your left foot, while in
drivers seat..Fuse #9, 2nd row down, 4th fuse from rear (also controls
turn lights on 'towed unit'. (not RV) 20AMP. Another place to check,
Fuse center under hood, ahead and above radiator (Ford)..Fuse #8,
10Amp, small fuses at bottom right, 2nd row up, 4th from right.
(information from Ford 2000 Motorhome Class A Chassis owners guide)
Have a Great day!
