Marker/running light issue, any help appreciated!

Had a short in one of the five front top amber running lights. This blew the 10 amp fuse, label mkr in the fuse group left of the steering column. The buzzer that alerts you to having the lights left on now that I repaired light does not work, as well as the rear running lights and the top front group of five. Every thing else on the fuse panel works just fine. So the hazard lights, brake light, turn signal, everything works.
I have checked the engine compartment fuses, and nothing blown there.
Anyone know where the buzzer actually is? Any ideas where the power comes from? I am good for driving in daytime, but until this is fixed, my headlights work, but all the top lights and rear lights don't come on, even though the 10 amp fuse is good and all five top front lights work if I put 12 volts on them from an outside source.
Any one ever had this issue, and what was the solution?
Thanks for any help!

Found it!

OK, found a wiring diagram for a W22, and the marker lights 10amp fuse also is in series with a 20 amp lights fuse. Checked that, and replacing it brought all the lights back on, problem fixed....just thought I'd mention in case it helps someone else.

While working on your marker lights might want to check the rubber gaskets around them. They dry out in the heat and will shrink allowing water to get into the drivers area. They are made by Peterson Light.

Marker Lights

Mike1997 is on the right track. When the marker light rubber gaskets fails, the wiring and the light fixture itself corrode and short out.
Solution: Go to a truck stop and buy new lights with a footprint that covers the hole in the Airstream roof and replace them. Use plenty of sealant to ensure they stay dry. Don't expect to match them exactly, so replace them all at once. There is a sizable hole under each one and therein lies a big source of leaks that will drip on your dashboard unless you seal them well.
