electrical issue at toad harness

lost my power to wiring harness on passenger side only at rear of coach. before leaving on trip doing inspection on lights the lights on toad passenger side wouldn't work [turn signals or brake lights] driver side ok and motorhome lights worked great. thought had bad bulb but after a lot of testing found that the harness at rear of coach had no power coming to it for the passenger side of toad. after a lot of unwrapping of tape and pulling wires out of corrugated pipe looks like the wires going from the tail lights on coach travel back up to the front of coach and the wire that go to wiring harness come also from the front of coach. the wires coming from the front of coach to tail lights work fine on coach but the ones coming to wireing harness for coach only work on the drivers side for toad. checked all fuses under drawer at front center of coach but don't have a clue where else to look any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. jimmy

What kind of steering wheel do you have?
Is it the smartwheel, which has all of your lights, cruise control and wiper functions on it? If it is a smartwheel then you have probably caused some sort of electrical problem within the master controller. I only mention this because it just happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I had to buy a new controller. Good luck............

How did you test the plug on the motorhome for power? I have had an issue where one of the wires inside the plug came loose on my system before. Wonder if that could also be your problem.

Called tiffin and found out that there's a fuse panel inside one of the outside storage bays that has a panel of fuses for rear lights. Found a burnt fuse there. Would have never looked there. Should have called at least 6 hours before that. Dang!!!!
