Tow Vehicle Running Lights

We have a "new" 2008 All Star, and the running lights on our tow vehicle (a smoker!) aren't working. The brake lights work fine. We have been searching for the fuse, but there are so many fuses in so many different places on the coach, we are hoping someone can direct us to the general vacinity to look for the correct fuse! Of course, if anyone has another idea of what the problem might be, please share!!

We can't get the Motor Home back to the dealer until Mid-November for all of the little things that need to be repaired, but we have 4 more competitions this year, and will be towing in 4 states before then! We need help!!

Check the fuse box located in the side compartment on the curb side of coach next to the inverter/charger(small black box) under the batteries.

You might want to check the Toad connector. If you have an open ground in the connector you can have problems like that.

Do you have a separate light circuit (Blue Ox ) for your toad or do you use the "built-in" lights? If you use the Blue Ox, they are separated from your toad light system. I had a similar problem on my Toad and I do use the Blue Ox system that has seperate lights.

Good luck! I hope you don't have too much trouble finding the "Fix"

Do you have power to the running light pin on the 7 pin connector?
