Barrie, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here. We look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy this website and forum very much. I will put in a short cut to the New Members Check-In and Gulf Stream owners sections of the forum so others can welcome you and we can help you resolve the lights issue.
Have you checked for a loose ground? You can always run a new ground if you find one iffy. You may want to also check the back of the fuse block where the relays plug into, you could have a bad connection there. Good luck and keep us posted as to what you find.

Hello Barrie. I too had a GS Sunsport 1998 on a F-53 chassis. I too had the same thing happen while I was headed home one night on a major 4 lane highway. Scared the "heck" out of me. I pulled off and checked the switch and they all came back on. Never happened again.??? Like Mike suggested I checked all connections but could find nothing loose or I may have adjusted it without knowing. Good luck.

thank you for the help. i did find the problem it was the icc flash switch which i didn't know i had. i also had no idea what it was so i went online an sure enough it was on there and because i didn't really need it i bi-passed it and my lights work fine. that switch was not listed in my owners manual. i went on line to gulfstream home site an down loaded one of their newer owners manuals thank you again for the replys
