problem with brake and turn signal lites

I am batting 1000 with the info I've received here. So...another issue. Tonight while everyone else was celebrating the 4th of July, I was trying to wire a 7 round plug into my 1999 Gulfstream diesel pusher so that I can plug in my new Master Tow dolly to my RV. Everything was going well until a ground wire accidently touched a positive wire on the RV side of my hookup. Now I have running lights, headlights etc, but no brake lights or turn signals (which I assume run off the same circuit) on either the RV or dolly. I have checked all fuse boxes but have not found any blown fuses. Is there some sort of relay I am missing?

All help would be appreciated...

Not familiar with your coach make and year, but there is a fuse somewhere that is blown causing you to not have lights. May be in aother location or inline. Doubt shorting it out would have caused a relay to go out as tat is the reason for the fuses.

If you blew a fuse look for it in the chassis fuse block. could be under the dash or in the engine compartment. Mine was.

Not sure what chassis you have, I have a 1997 damon ultrasport with a freightliner xc chassis. I had a similar issue and it turned out to be a 6 amp diode inline in the wiring harness that went bad. Freightliner came up with a fix for it with 2 6 amp dode in parallel, not sure what year they change it on the chassis. if same chassis PM me and i will give you my fix. On mine the brakes and turn signal was on a seperate fuse than running light. so i would make sure you found the brake light fuse first.

Look in the right rear and front left compartments for the fuse blocks. You have two sets of fuses for the brake lights and turn signals etc. One is for the coach itself and the other is for the 7 wire receptacle. You may also have a converter in-line if you have amber turn signal lights. Check the converter for power in but not out. If so, the converter is bad and will have to be replaced. Good luck and keep us posted.
