Dashboard lights

Hi. I just bought a 2000 Damon Daybreak, dashboard lights do not work. With the lights switch on, if I move the dimmer on(up), all the gauges turn off, dashboard lights still do not work. If I turn the dimmer of (down) or if I turn the light switch off, the gauges come back alive. All confused... Any Ideas?

Thank you.

Welcome to iRV2

Most times the gauge package and dash board wiring is supplied by the chassis manufacturer .
So I'll have to ask . What chassis is your coach built on ?

Thanks for adding your chassis info .

As ; sledhead ; stated in his post , it appears the dash lights and gauges are fighting to find good ground , so locating and cleaning the ground for the dash wiring harness would be the first thing to do.
There may even be a ground on the instrument cluster printed circuit board that requires attention.
