Well the DRL quit, after checking all the fuses wires and relays that I can find, No joy. THEN I realized there are fog lights on this new to us rig, the manual for what its worth shows a Fog Light switch. There is no such switch in our coach. I believe I can find my way around Monaco, having owned a Serengetti, Simba and now back to diesel pusher, so what gives here? where is the secret Fog light switch? There is an AUX switch but that is not it. Any pointers would be appreciated for the hidden switch and/or the DRL. (Its not the Smart Wheel either).

If your coach is like my 03 Monaco Windsor the DRL lights come on when the wipers are activated. They will then stay on until I kill the engine.

Usually the fog light switch is to the drivers right on the lower portion of the center console. They will only operate with low beams on.

The DLR operates once wipers are activated, thank you for that heads up, I can live with that work around, but the elusive Fog Light switch,......

My understanding is that at that time ( 03 ) the lights were required to
come on when raining.
From that standpoint maybe not it's as strange as it sounded.
Now I think DRL comes on with the ignition or can be set to auto so they will.

My 02 Monaco Diplomat has Driving Light relay in front bay below driver. It turns lights on when engine running and controlled by releasing park brake

Ok. I do like it when it rains, especially hard, that people turn on their lights. I drove truck for awhile, and I can tell you when it's raining, and you look into your side view mirrors, it is VERY HARD to see traffic coming up on you unless they have lights on. Trucks as you all know, throw a lot of water off their tires even with flaps. I turn my lights on when it's raining no matter what I am driving. I want me and everyone else to have a good chance of seeing, me and you. I thank you for using your lights.
On the DRL thing. I want to be the one who controls it. After all, I am the PIC, Pilot In Command. Can you see me know. Wink.
EDIT: I guess I better take a look at my light system a little closer on my MH. Lights do come on at first start. I always wondered why. Ok, where that manual, lol.
