No power to toad taillights

I have a 2005 Newmar KSDP and have lost power to the trailer connector for the toad taillight circuit. I still have brake and turn signals on the toad and taillights on the coach. Does anyone know where the connection box or fuse box is for this circuit. I can't find any fuses or relays for this in the man panels.

Have you tried using a meter on the coach plug to ensure there is power lost on that circuit? Usually, I have found, when something like this happens it is a corroded or dirty pin in one end of the connection. If you still have power on the pin inside the seven pin connection, then you can isolate it to the plugs or the toad.

On our Essex there is a fuse/relay box mounted on the door side rail in the aft storage bay in front of the drive wheels. The fuse panel has separate fuses for each of the lights...

Just thought I would say thanks for the help. Actually what happened is the lights started to work again on their own. I have travelled almost 10,000km in the last month, from Ontario to the west coast of Vancouver Island and back and they are still working. I will still take a look at everything when I get home to try to figure out what happened so I can prevent it from re-occurring.

I had a similar problem. The cord that brought power from the coach to the toad was bad.
