Clearance/Tail Lights

Today my tail and clearance light would not work. Checked fuses in compartment in front of left front tire. Switched relays and still not lights. Have brake lights, Flashers and Turn signals. As I check again all fuses, where else should I look??

Other DP owners refer to another fuse location in a rear compartment drivers side.
Also check your tow plug wiring make sure nothings loose.

My '04 KSDP/Freightliner has a fuse panel under the dash above the instrument cluster. In a compartment behind the pass. rear wheel are two component boxes with fuses and relays also.(Newmar lists the location of those boxes under the bed.)
When I turn on the tail lights/clearance lights I hear a relay energize under the dash.

Had the same problem with my 05 Monaco Caymen. I had Monaco fax me the wireing dia for these lights. Found the HOT side was good but had lost the ground and could not find where it was connected. I just ran a new wire from the tail lights and disconnected the factory ground wire. I later found the factory ground was connected to the fram work under the cover between the windshield and the door. The bolt had come loss.

I had the same problem in my 2005 DS (Spartan) and it was a blown fuse labeled Marker Lights. It is located in the compartment in front of the drivers wheel. I replaced the 20 amp fuse and it blew again when I turned on the headlights. I finally found a short in the plug at the Honda CR-V.

Finally found the bad fuse. 20 amp Marker. Don't know how I missed it before. I think it blew when I hooked up the car. Will watch it closely when headed out Thurs. Thanks to all.
