Power issue to toad connection on MH

Just checking to get some ideas on where to look. I have a 35 foot Winnebago Advnturer. Last year I towed a vehicle with no wiring problems. This year I have changed toads and wired lights onto the toad. The strange thing is that I have no power for one signal and brake light. Both lights are working on the MH but showing no power at toad connection at back of MH. I have no idea where these wires go and connect with the lights on the MH? All lights and ground good on toad, just no power at the one wire to the connection. Does anyone have an idea on what could be a simple place to start?

Check the fues for the receptical. In my MH they are at the right rear corner. I have to remove screws and lift the panel over the rad to get to them. Turn the turn signals on and walk around the coach listening for the relays clicking. You could also call Winnebago

Fuse Panel

The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by
the brake pedal. Remove the panel cover to access the fuses.
To remove a fuse use the fuse puller tool provided on the fuse panel
cover.

Fuse junction

Dumb question before I fight to get the bolts out and back in, is this the junction box you are speaking of? It is on the left side of steering column.

Looks like the correct fuse box the cover should pop off. Should not need to unbolt anything.

fuse box

This box has at least two bolts on it. One is visible in the picture and there is one at the back in the same position. (hard to get at.) That is why I asked. It looks like a troublesome one to remove and get back on and most fuse boxes just clip off?

Thanks

fuse box

Just to let you know that I called Winnebago and asked their advice. They told me that there are two fuse boxes on my rig, one up front over radiator and one under the flip up dash. He felt the fuse I am looking for should be under the hood but could not tell me which fuse as Ford does not label them. I guess I will be looking at all of them.

Thanks

Fuse box

Well after a discussion with Ford and looking harder under the flip-up dash, I found the fuse box hidden under a different looking cover. Gotta say I feel a bit stupid to not see this one. The first fuse I took out was the one that needs replacing. Problem solved.

Thanks for all the help

Steve

Great!! I have been looking all over the web for a picture. The drawing I have just showed it at the end of a wiring harness next to the instrument panel which I guess it is.
