Monaco Brakelight wiring schematic

I was recently made aware I had no brake lights on my 94 Monaco Executive. It has 4 lights on each side in the rear and 1 in the center. Center light works fine. Brake light switch checked ok. Turn Signals, 4 way flashers and Brake light use same element in the bulbs. Signals and flashers work fine (ignition does not have to be on for them to operate) I searched for a fuse in driver side electrical panel, but didn't find one. Monaco didn't have a schematic readily because of coach age, but said they would do some research. anyone with a Monaco within about 2 years of 1994 have a schematic of the brake wiring they could send me?

The power for the CHIMSL ( Center HIgh Mounted Stop Light ) is independent to the back of the coach from the brake light switch .
The regular brake light power runs up the steering column to the signal switch , where the movement of the signal switch to left or right , swaps power from the flasher for the stop light switch power.
If you check the multiple connector ( 7 or 8 wire ) at the base of the steering column , for power from the stop light switch , going up the column and you don't get power back down from the signal switch to feed the back of the coach .
The signal switch wiring will be , in no particular order.
1. brake light switch; power with foot on brake
2. turn signal flasher; power with key on
3. hazard flasher; power
4. left front signal and dash indicator; output
5. right front signal and dash indicator;output
6. left rear signal/brake light; output
7. right rear signal/brake light ; output
8. horn activation ; relay ground
You may need a signal switch .
A new switch can be tested for operation , by plugging it into the dash harness before you take the column apart to install it.

I was already thinking along the lines you stated in your reply, I contacted Monaco Tech support and mentioned some things you stated and told him I thought problem was in turn signal switch, he stated no way if signals worked fine. When I told him signals and brakes used same element and no way would they continue to flash if brake switch supplied a non flashing direct 12 volt to the same element, he became agitated so I backed off and told him I would do some checking and call back, he was ok with that. Had nothing to lose so I pulled steering wheel. Turn signal switch and 4 way flasher switch come as one unit, brake switch (red wire) and 12v from turn signal flasher (black wire) both feed to 4 way flasher switch which then determines based on it's being pushed in or pulled out what the turn signal switch will send out. my problem was red output wire from 4 way flasher switch had a loose connection, a dab or 2 of solder fixed the problem. Just got around to it today. Thanks so much for your reply.

Thanks for wrapping up your post.
Glad it was an easy (ish ) repair .
Can't say I ever worked on a signal switch where the flasher switch wasn't part of the main signal switch.
Safe travels.
