Exterior Marker Lights

All marker lights near the roof (front and rear) have not ever worked since purchasing our 2004 Damon Intruder. I hope that the problem is only an impaired fuse, if I can find the physical location of the fuse. Can anyone offer me some assistance?

I don't know how they wired up your clearance lights, Most of them use a common ground line, but others, like my MH use separate ground wires for different sections. When the lights went out on the rear end of my MH, I simply tapped into one of the ground wires and ran a new to ground, that got them all working.

I would bet that you have a bad ground connection, but that is easy to check with a test light or a VOM meter. Once you see if you have 12 volts gong to the lights, i would run a temp ground wire to see if the lights come on. If they do, you just need to run a permanent new ground wire and you are set to go. I have tried to chase ground wires, but that is almost impossible to find without tearing out all the walls on the inside to get at the wiring.

Good Luck.

Many thanks to previous two respondents. I'm a little embarrassed that I found the fuse so easily after reviewing my manual. And, as I had hoped, the 10A fuse was blown. Now, I am hopeful that it was one of those infrequent current overloads. I'll find out as soon as my wife returns with our only means of transportation .

I have had so many Motorhome TO-DOs since we bought this coach in the Spring and these upper lights weren't even on my priority list until recently. I will follow up on those suggestions offered should replacing the fuse not solve the problem. Thanks.

On a non-related side-note, an issue I had recently was with a dead receptacle. The kitchen circuit which ran through the bathroom had two GFIs. After a couple of weeks of telephone discussions with electrician friends, tearing into wiring, devices, panels, etc. I was about ready to go insane. As far as I was concerned, I had replaced everything just as I had removed it. And, I had replaced both GFIs with brand new Coopers GFICs. Alas! That was where my problem lay hidden. I drove to a local RV dealer and bought two new GFIs that were exact replicas of the ones that came out of the coach and all has been well since! Evidently, the commercial GFIs are so much more sensitive, they can't carry the loads without tripping. Just a little potpourri to offer for your amusement.

Again, thanks for your input.
