No brake lights, flasher, turn signal

I have a 1999 Coachman Catalina. My brake lights, flasher & signals won't work. Have power on at the switch on master cyllindar. Can't figure out what is broken. Anyone have this?

Always look for a common component , in this case all the systems you mention go through the turn signal switch, and steering column wiring.
Could be as simple as a loose multiple connector at the base of the steering column.
If you have checked the fuses, brake light switch and flashers involved then.
You need to check for power through the wiring up and down the column.

Don't forget to check the bulbs, all the systems you mentioned use the same bulb.

I had the same problem with my 08 Damon this past year. Turns out that both sealed tail light assemblies failed at the same time and the fix was a simple replacement costing less than $20.00 and only took a couple of minutes.

Actually, if those systems are all down, there would be quite a few bulbs not functioning, including some on the dash. The chances of all of them failing at once would be quite a coincidence....

After checking the appropriate fuses, I'd be following Skip's suggestions.

Thanks everyone. Turns out the switch in the steering wheel needed to be unplugged, cleaned and plugged back in. All is well. Thanks
