Unhappy HELP! Please!

we have a 2002 Fleetwood Discovery. The right tail light is not working, but the break light is working. We assumed it was a fuse. The diagram in the Owners Manual is not the same as the one we have. We have 3 rows of fuses with 4 fuse in each row. Which one is the right tail light?

Most likely the bulb is bad, if stop light is working but tail light is not. Try switching bulb with the otherside of your coach. Tail light bulbs have a double filament, one for tail light and one for stop light.

Is this a dual filament bulb? If so, just replace it. That's where I'd start.

In case some of you don't know what dual filament means. If you take out the bulb, most older ones push in and twist CC wise. Take a look inside, a single filament will have two little wires sticking up with a spring like wire between. A dual will have two, usually one is a little shorter. If one is burned out you may be able to see it broken. The bottom of a single has only one contact, dual has two. The idea is the tail light and stop are in a single bulb.

Swapping the bulbs is an easy test but if you have it out anyway for the small price I would get a couple replacements. Nice to have on hand anyway. This may not be the case with newer bulbs. I replaced a headlight bulb in my SUV and was shocked at not only how pricey but how much stuff you had to remove just to get the old one out.

If it's got a round base it should be a #1157.
