I see you've been a member for a while but not posting.
A few questions.
Is this a new problem ? Or a problem on a coach that is new to you ?
Are you towing a trailer or toad ?
I have wiring diagrams for my 99 F/L chassis and don't show an in-line fuse, in the exhaust brake system. All in fuse boxes.
I'll double check , but without looking right now , I think all the fuses related to exhaust brake operation , are 10 amp, on my chassis anyway.
Because, the F/L chassis , activates the brake lights when the exhaust brake is active there may be a cross feed, some where.
Freightliner's free help line may be able to help. 1-800-385-4357, have your serial number handy. When your on the phone , inquire about Access Freightliner, for online access to wiring diagrams, and other info, specific to your coach, sign up takes a while but is worth the effort.
