Brake Lights Don't Work

AS LY 30' left & right brake lights don't work but center brake light does. Checked for broken wires, loose connections, replaced both bulbs, and my next step is to replace the brake light switch. Is this switch adjacent to the brake pedal or around the master cylinder? All help is appreciated. Thanks.
Steve

it sounds like there is a broken wire between the 3rd light and the side ones. also, it might be a bad ground wire. do you have turn signals?

Are you sure the brake signal is getting to the coach? Depending on the tow vehicle the trailer brakes can be on a different circuit with a separate fuse or relay than the TV brake lights.
