lights and fuses

I am trying to get my exterior lights functioning for inspection. The back-up, flashers, turn signal, and brake work, but not a single one of the "running lights" the surround my 68 Globetrotter (like the three on the front over the Airstream plate) lights up. Is there a fuse box like exists on a car. If there is I can't find the bugger. Any advice otherwise. Can't go camping for nothing but the these silly little lights-Driving me crazy.

don't let the lights make you crazy...

they are not fused, the wiring runs from a junction under the front of the trailer directly to each light.

inspect each of the lights, look for corroded ground connections under the body of the lamp. usually a new bulb and new fasteners that securely ground the lamp will fix the problem.

most folks do not try to fix the lamps since they are less than 5 bucks each. replacements are available at most napa or truck/farm stores. the fixtures are made by a company called "grote".

good luck, and do not forget to seal the holes through the skin if you replace the lamps!

you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.
