Class C running light problem

I have a 1996 Class C coach that has very very dim running/parking lights that fade to black very quickly.The front parking lights on the cab work but thats it.all blinkers work,brake lights ,flashers.Its is just running lights on the coach.Ive also lost the two lights at the bed which are 1156 bulbs but may be a seperate issue as they should not be in the same curcuit as the running lights ,or are they?.The confusing part is they are all getting some type of power but very little and within 5 minutes that little bit goes away?.

I assume these lights get their power from the truck and not he house battery.Truck battery is at 12.75 volts and house battery is just below 12volts.I realize the house battery is low but certainly has enough to light these lights much more than they are but as I said,I dont think this battery is part of the exterior running lights.Im still checking around for a bad ground .

What would help a lot is some direction on where all these coach lights get their power so I could check there 1st to make sure I have power to that point.Isnt there a junction where the cab & chassis was linked to the coach by the manufacturer?

This is on a 1996 Ford E350 Chassis.Thanks for any help

sounds like you may have a bad ground on the clearence light curcuit. They get there power from the chassis (truck) battery and thru the headlamp switch. I do not know where the ground is located but you may have more than one.
