Parking Light doesn't work

Greetings to all, This problem is on a 1989 Holiday Rambler Imperial weather RV engine is on or off.
Problem: Both front/left parking lights do not turn on when lights are turned on. They work fine as left turn signal weather lights are on or not. They will also come on if I put my turn signal lever to the left.
What I have done:
changed light bulbs.
cleaned ground connection.
chased wires looking for something loose or corroded.
checked all the wires going to the light switch.
Took light switch apart, looked good, pretty solid.
I have voltage (don't know how much) on both connection points of bigger bulb base.
all I can think of is a broken ground wire inside the base bulb itself. I'll be able to check it tomorrow.
Thank you...Jay

My thoughts about your testing and results are; since you have voltage at both pins in the bulb socket, the only other possibility is faulty bulbs. In the past I have bought new bulbs that were faulty. Have you checked the bulbs for continuity at both(each of them) pins to the ground? Parking filament is totally separate and isolated from turn filament.
