New to RVing

I just purchased my first motorhome,its a 1998 ford V10 cab with a coachman Santara camping area. I did a trial run in my backyard to get familiar with it.ALL works fine but now I don't have my running lights working,brake lights yes turn signals yes headlights yes front signals yes.Just the running lights around the top and couple on the side. Any hints of what could have went wrong? Fuses good/ Thanks in advance for any troubleshooting advice. Abecar9

Could be as simple as the bad bulbs if you've checked the fuses. Try pulling the cover of on that is not working and check for 12 volts with multimeter.

I agree with SDennislee and you also may need to clean each light bulb ternimal then insert new bulbs.
Good Luck

While your up there make sure the clearance lights are properly sealed -- Class C's are notorious for cab over leaks and many of them come from clearance lights.
