Flasher / Turn Sig Issue Need Help

Good morning,
I have an issue that I need some quick help on. My RV is at a mom and pop service station having a tail light issue sorted out. The problem is as previously posted no Emergency Flashers, Turn Signals, Back Up lights, Brake Lights, or Cruise control. The guy working on it has very little space and doesn't really want it there but is good enough to try to help me. He does not know where the Flasher Switch, or Turn Sig Switch is located. Can anyone tellme where this would be so I can call him and advise him of such. 1996 Pace Arrow, Ford 460 EFI, F-53 Chassis. Have Posted this in the Class A and Fleetwood Forum too.
Thank you in advance for any help!

Hi Mark,
Thanks a lot for the response, I fired that off to the old guy working on my unit. He didn't sound like he was buying into it, he said he'd look but was doubtful that it would be located there. I really expected it would have been in the small fuse box under the dash, there is a space there for it, like a recess in the fuse box, but it does not appear to be wired. I am thinking an electronics class at the local vo-tech is in order for me. Thank you sir for the response, it is much appreciated.

Make sure the wiring harness that goes up the steering column is plugged in tight. This should be located about halfway down the steering column. This connects all the items you refer to to the controls.

@ nightriderrv/dajudge,
Just wanted to say thanks once more for the help, and to let anyone know who might be experiencing similar problems. I was able to get all of these problems taken care of but it took 3 seperate fixes, the entire blinker switch assembly, the Flasher it self, and one more blinker switch (don't know what it's called. I do appreciate all of the info........Now on to the next problem!

WOW, Failure of those switches (Turn signal switch and 4-way flasher switch) is very rare.. To have both of them go bad is all but unheard of, In fact this is the first time I've heard of it.

Now fuses... On many cars that's all one fuse. On my motor home 2 fuses.
