First off, Welcome to IRV2!

Second, it would help to post the chassis type; gas, diesel, Freightliner, Ford, etc. That will help determine where the fuses might be located. Since you said exhaust brake I'll ASSume that you have a Freightliner. The brake and turn signal fuses are normally in one of the rear compartments on the passenger side.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Wish I could help but don't know anything about HR. Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

There is a 20 amp fuse, and as well a relay (coil) between power and the brake light switch. Either could be your problem. Check in the two small electrical boxes below the main chassis fuse panel (bay below the driver.) I don't recall which has the relay and fuse but they are marked.

Probably a bad assumption, the Ambassador was built on the Roadmaster chassis, with the chassis fuses and such in the electrical bay under the driver's position (road, front.)

Roadmaster chassis , there is a front distribution panel and a Monaco 3 panel in Driver side front bunk and a Monaco 4 passenger rear, I blew the marker lights in the Monaco 3 box then realized I had no foot brake lights but did have exhaust brake lights, all due to short in the tow trailer (cut wire which Iíve found)

I had the identical issue on my freightliner, found the fuse and relay and both were good. My umbilical was still plugged into the back of the bus, happened to move it and water came out. I removed it and everything worked. Can't imagine why the fuse didn't blow I got a new umbilical and this time sealed ends with silicon. Maybe a longshot but if you have your cable on the back try unplugging it. Regardless, you will want to find your fuse and relay for future. Good Luck!!
