THOR #9060
Electrical Harness

My rear lights donít work. I canít find an RV mechanic available to help me with this issue. An auto mechanic thinks I need a new electrical harness. Thor is slow to respond, and Iíve been told it could take months to get the part. Has anyone had this issue with their Thor and could offer suggestions?

You need a new auto mechanic. There is nothing special about an RV. Car, Truck, Bus. Boat, Rv. All the exact same thing. Harnesses don't go bad. Just the connections or the fudes do.

Or maybe it got pinched or cut somehow. In any event the previous post is right - you need a new mechanic. Too many these days want to just start replacing stuff usually a great cost (and mark up). Wires are insanely low tech and super easy to repair. Virtually no cost for parts and with a skilled troubleshooter it shouldnít take too long to track down the problem. Rear lights especially are easy. Good luck

My coach uses a complete rear harness installed in the rear cap before the cap is installed onto the house. There is a 16 pin connector where the rear cap harness plugs into the chassis harness. Since the plug is in the left rear part of the chassis it gets wet and dirty and is subject to flying debris from the tires. That is where I would start looking.

I don't know what unit that you have but we have a Synergy.
Ours went out and I found a relay loose in the fuse panel below drivers seat.
Took it out and put it back in and all is good.
Hope yours is a simple as this.
