If you don't turn the master switch off the light stay on. Thanks for anyone that can help out on this problem.

See my post of 6/10/22 where I describe the operation of the headlight system in detail, should answer your question.

Middle light is a single element bulb that comes on when the headlight switch is on and the hi low switch is toggled to high beam.

Inner bulb is a single element bulb that comes on when the key is on and the driving light switch on the dash is on. The driving light switch is the bottom rocker located to the left of the speedometer along with the ICC and Auxiliary switches.

If your headlights are coming on as soon as the battery disconnect is turned on it probably means that your headlight switch is bad and the contacts have welded internally. Try switching the hi low switch to verify that both high and low beams are coming on, if so that points to the headlight switch, if not then there may be a wiring issue. Unfortunately I do not have a wiring schematic for the coach, just for the chassis, in fact I am not sure that there is schematic for the coach, as the company was bought by Monaco, who then went bankrupt, and the documentation was not preserved according to the company currently building Holiday Ramblers. So your only recourse is to trace down the wiring. The good news is that much of the wiring does have labels which can help.

Good luck!
As soon as the main disconnect is turned on the outside high low lights come on switch to high and the middle come on with the high beam, turn key on and fog light switch and the inside ones come on with the low beams make sense? I think the light switch was replaced did each wire plug in to the switch or in a common block and that plugged in to the switch.

This indicates that the headlight switch is bad or is wired incorrectly. The headlight switch is fed directly from the disconnect switch, so the headlights can operate without the ignition key being on. Since the lights come on as soon as the disconnect is on that means that the headlight switch is stuck in the on position or the spade connections on the back of the plug are touching each other. You will need to remove the dash panel that holds the headlight switch so you can access the wiring and check out what is going on, but I am pretty sure you will need to replace the switch.

Sorry I forgot to answer the question about the wiring, in my unit the wires plug on the headlight switch individually, however the previous owner(s) were not very good mechanics and tended to do poor work on the wiring, so I do not know how it was originally set up.Here is a link to a typical GM headlight switch, which is what my unit has. headlight switch wiring diagram? - The 1947 - Present Chevrolet & GMC Truck Message Board Network

Another thought, I was working in my electrical cabinet on my Rambler, and there is a relay marked headlights, so that might also be the source of your problem if it has welded in the on position.

You might want to consider a universal DRL here is a link for one from Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/Mobilistics-D..._t1_B0042OX8YA

You will have to do some experimentation to figure out what wires to connect. The schematic that comes with the module tells you what should connect to what, the trick will be figuring out which existing wires go to which lights. The other alternative is to eliminate the Daytime driving lights altogether, not a legal requirement. Some states require headlights when wipers are going, or in special situations. On my 1993 the driving lights are controlled manually by a rocker on the dash.

I did look and could not find wiring diagrams for either the 70991 or the 70996. Looks like these modules just add an automatic function to the daytime driving light, for example turns them on and off with the ignition, some models use the high beams at a reduced voltage, or the low beams full power or reduced. My guess is the 70991 module turns off driving lights when the headlights are turned on, since you have three headlights, one which is probably only for daytime driving. I would also guess that the 70996 has a different functionality maybe for a two headlight system not three.

Sorry that I cannot give you better information, my unit does not have this module or I would check it out and provide a wiring schematic and function description.
