2001 Chateau 31S Rear Exterior Lights

Plan on purchasing our first Class C, but ran across a strange exterior lighting issue. There are no operating lights on the back of the coach to include, Reverse, running, license plate, tail/brake lights. No manual is with the unit, so is there an obvious source of the problem to check?

Thanks!

My taillight wires run inside the wall form the fixtures, down and out the bottom edge of the wall, under the bumper. That's where I would look to start tracing....

BUT FIRST, are you sure the fixtures are not corroded, bad bulbs, etc...?

There have been several posts here re. the fixtures they are using on slightly newer coaches that have a poorly designed gasket seal and they leak.... leading to rotten walls. In my case there wasn't any significant corrosion yet, but it had been wet enough long enough to rot wood.... so I can imagine corrosion and bad connections are a real possibility.

I am not sure about the condition of the electrical connections and plan on investigating this evening. It just seemed odd, that all lights on the exterior of the back wall are out and on 4 different circuits if I'm not mistaken.
Thanks!
