Post HELP! 1979 Vogue Motorhome

hi all,
we just bought our first motorhome, a 1979 Vogue. She has a Dodge 440 that runs great. I am in desperate need of a owners manual and or a wiring diagram. I have a break light out and need to trace the wiring. If anyone can help or point me in a direction of somewhere I could find a owners manual/or wiring diagram I would be so grateful. It's funny, seems you can't register or pass an inspection without working break lights. silly huh? Thanks in advance. Lexi

Your brake light runs through the turn signal switch. Try running the turn signal switch through its paces, left/right many times and have some one watch your brake light (it will help clean the switch after its been sitting).

Using a test light probe, start at the brake light end. It was common for corrosion to effect the connections between the bulb & contacts. Then remove the light from the wall & check the incoming wires. Often corrosion exists between at the wire ends too.

Chassis wiring diagrams are in the 78-79 Dodge Motorhome Service Manual. Here is a link that has both the Service and Parts manuals.
