Fuse Box

I have just purchased a 1997 Itasca and the rear lights and flashers are not working. It seems that they are not getting power to them at all. I found the fuse box under the hood but canít find another fuse box. Iíve looked as many places as I can think of including laying upside down in the driverís seat to look under the steering area. Any help in finding the solution would be greatly appreciated!

You can get the wiring layout by going to winnebagoind.com and clicking the resources link at the bottom of the page. DId you check the bulbs first??

I have also already replaced the multi-switch. The headlights, taillights, marker lights, dash lights and hazard lights all work. However, the directional lights donít light up at all. I also failed to mention that it is a 1997 F53 Ford chassis.

Thanks for the resource information. Yes, the bulbs are good.

so the only thing not working are the turn signals? could a bad or absent flasher unit be the culprit?

I assume this is a standard 1157 bulb and one side is the tail light and the other side of the bulb is the stop/turn light...
power runs from the fuse panel to the stop light switch through the turn signal switch on the column to the bulbs.. when the turn signal switch is in the neutral position the power runs directly through the turn signal switch to the rear bulbs.. when you turn on the directional signals, power is now supplied from the panel to the switch and to the turn signal... while the other side still is powered by the stop light switch
This power to the turn signal switch must run through the flasher (makes the bulb blink). Usually when the flasher is running you can hear it click under the dash...
Most older units also have a second flasher for the 4 way flashers and that's a complete separate circuit... I would turn on the 4 way flasher to verify that all bulbs and wiring are in tact and functioning... once this is done go back to the turn signal switch and flasher and test...

That is correct. All the bulbs work when the hazard lights are activated so I know the bulbs work. We can rule that part out. My frustration is that I cannot locate the inside fuse panel that contains the fuses for the turn signals and the flashers. I found the flasher for the hazard lights on the firewall near the gas pedal. I have look extensively under the dash, etc. to no avail. I have an operator’s manual for the chassis and it shows the flasher and fuses that pertains to the signal lights however the fuse panel so far has not been located. What am I missing?

Does your instrument cluster raise up? Most newer Winnebago gassers the instrument panel is hinged near the windshield. I had a 2006 Sightseer and the turn signal flasher was in a fuse panel under the cluster. You would never see it from under the dash.
