Lights out

OK - 2004 Dutchstar 4010

My wiring harness at the dinghy side came apart and all wires for lighting it came loose.May have touched each other or ??

May or may not be realated, but then the next time I drove at night I noticed the following were out on the coach:
Fog Lights
Clearance Lights
Tail Lights
Dashboard gauge lights
(not sure about back-up lights)

Still working:
Headlights and brights
turn signals
other dash lights (switch light)

I checked all fuses - good
In fuse box are relays that I have no clue about, but red "bad" indicator lights are not lit on any of them.

Is there a wiring harness fuse (for lights to the dinghy)on the bus that could have blown? Where would that be?

Or anything else in common with all these lights that are out?

Im totally stumped.

On the road and nobody has time to look at it

Any suggestions would be a blessing

You may want to start checking bulbs. If the wires touched briefly it may have blown the bulbs and not the fuses. Just a chance

Hi reed1950,
This repair is not going to be easy. If you do it yourself it is going to take a bunch of time. Finding where the components are is half the battle. For me, I'd find a good Newmar dealer and take the coach there. The Newmar techs can find this kind of defect a whole lot faster than an owner.
