Tail lights are out

Returning from a recent trip it appears that my taillights are no longer working. Guessing its a fuze since none work, I have been unable to find it. Looked under the driver side area, but no luck. Any ideas where it would be or how it might be labelled on my coach? Thanks!

Since you activate the lights from the dash area, I'd say look around the front of the RV. On my Freightliner chassis they are all under the hood. So not really on the drivers side. And not underneath either.

I'd imagine a Spartan DP would be set up in a similar fashion.

In a Spartan ,look in the right rear comp door
There should be a 3 to 4 in round fuse comp there
Turn it to open and you will find all the light fuses there...C

I agree. On my 08 the fuses are mounted in a fuse box on the right side. That box has the relays and fuses for the taillights, the light plug, plus a few others.

IN the rear on Driver side or Passenger side? In the meantime I'll look and see if I can find what y'all are pointing to.

When you open the door for the last storage compartment on the passenger side look on the frame rail, itís a small black plastic box.

This is where a wiring schematic comes into play. Invest some time to find one close to your rig. I use it all the time.

I have one for the 2 back wiring panels mentioned earlier, but not for the compartment under the DS. What threw me was the labelling of the fuse......

Sorry if I led you in the wrong direction. I guess sometime between 06 and 08 they must have changed it.

No biggie! Digging into the compartments and learning more always helps! As you mentioned weird how much changed between a few model years....
