Driver's side brake lights do not work.

I just purchased a 2008 Tiffin Phaeton and I found my driver side break lights do not work. The previous owner just had it inspected so they had to work at that time. I am new to the RV owner world.
I have checked the connector and the bulbs. Thoughts?

Welcome to iRV2.

Sorry your first post is about problems .

So you've tested the bulb socket with a volt meter or a 12 volt test light ?
Does your coach use that same bulb for brake light and turn signal ?

Some chassis manufacturers , have a rear wiring fuse box at the back of the coach , for the rear lights and trailer plug.
Can you add your coach's chassis manufacturer to your post .

Your coach is a little new for this problem but I would check for a bad ground.

I have had this happen twice on my current coach, and once on my previous one. Each time it was the socket. Remove the bulb and clean the socket contacts. Make sure the bulb makes good tight contact with the socket.
