Thumbs down Tail Lights and Clearance Lights Not Working

Yesterday the tail lights and clearance lights on our ACE 30.1 wouldn't work.

The running lights, headlights, turn signals and brake lights all still work.

Everything was working when we parked a couple days before that.

Is there a fuse for just those lights? I have found the Power Distribution box in the engine compartment and the fuse box inside (by the driver's left knee). Boy, aren't those a couple of fun locations to get to (especially for us old folks)!

The descriptions I can find for the fuses are not very helpful for me. Maybe I just don't know the terminology.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Bob

Check both for water. The taillights have a really bad gasket around them that doesn't last long before letting water in.

Interesting. We had rain and strong winds at the last campground. I am going to go check right now.

Thanks.

Pulled both tail light lenses and they are both dry inside.

HOWEVER, I turned the lights on and they all work. :face palm:

Guess I'll just keep an eye on it for now.

Thanks again.

In the Vegas - Slot 22

We just changed the blown fuse in location 22 (15A) all the lights outside, functioned again. That fuse also seems to control the fog lights on the Vegas...

Thanks for the reply. I will recheck the fuses when we tie up for a few days.

Just curious though, did your turn signals and brake lights work OK while the other outside lights did not?

Oh yeah, was that in the fuse block in the engine compartment or the cabin under the dash?

Awhile back I noticed a couple or three of my running lights not working (one at the top back and a couple on the side I think). I just moved the bulbs a bit and they all worked. I'm guessing they aren't a tight fit and become loose overtime. Reminds me that i need to check mine before the 4 day weekend trip we have planned coming up.

I am having the same issues. My running lights in the back don't work and the dash lights are out as well. We did find this out until wee 600 miles from home. I had to use the light on my phone to see how fast i was going and we turned the light on in the bedroom just so we had some sort of light in the back. The brake and turn signals all worked. I found the power distribution box in the engine compartment but they aren't labeled. I didn't find one in the cab so i will go back and look again. I am also interested to see if the location 22 was in the engine compartment or cab.

Talking

Thanks for all replies.

My problem turned out to be a loose plug under the dashboard.

ps. location 22 is the right one for tail lights (on the ACE 30.1).

Smile Rear Tail and Clearance Lights Out

I took my 2017 Venetian to CW for repair of non working rear tail lights. Brake and turn signal lights worked OK. Problem was cable near rear engine was not connected. Must have come off during travel as mh had state safety inspection sticker before I bought it new last year.
