2004 Storm Trailer Brake Lights Won't Work

And of course there is no diagram in the owners manual or online to the fuses and the 4 relay switches as to what they are.

First off, welcome to iRV2!

Second, you should add a "signature" to your profile. It contains whatever info you want; most people put info about their coach there, so they don't have to type it into each message. Instructions for adding a signature are here.

Re: Trailer brake lights. Is your coach built on a Ford or a Workhorse chassis?

The place to start troubleshooting is at the hitch connector on the coach. The 2004 Storm owner's manual, page 81 (link here) shows the connector and what signals appear on each pin/blade. A similar diagram is here.

Using a voltmeter or a 12V test light, check for the correct signal at each hitch connector pin. Let us know what you find and we'll suggest the next steps.

You can download an owner's manual for the Ford F-53 motorhome chassis at this link. The manual will have a section on fuses.

Thanks so incredibly much! You are a wealth of information and I can now identify those mystery fuses, lol. Will be going out soon to try to fix the problem and will let you know how it goes, thanks so much for offering to troubleshoot along the way.

Supposed to leave yesterday to move across country from WA to FL but after picking up the car trailer, discovered there were no brake lights and uHaul won't release the trailer.

Also, has anyone traveled this route before? Looking to take I5 to 10 all the way to avoid mountains/snow as much as possible. Hopefully it's the best route.
