77 argosy running light wiring help?

Hi folks, does anyone know where the wires to the rear running lights on a 77 Minuet 6.0 are run through the frame/walls? None of our rear markers are working and we need to trace down the wiring. A hint of where we need to be looking would save a bit of time... thanks!

I don't know about through the coach. Do you have signal to the fuse block in the front street side corner inside just behind the dinette? I would check there first and then check the ground in each of the marker lights. I have a '77' 6 metre also and cleaning the ground at each marker light fixed the problem.

The wire for the running lights runs down the ceiling, on the curb side of the center panel that runs the length of the coach. When it gets to the back, it goes to the right, and around the end cap from right to left.

Thanks Royce and Terry,
Darkness descended upon us before we could continue tracing this problem further. It appears that a PO did a LOT of re-wiring, some of it seemingly bizaare.

So, we do have a fuse block and a couple of wiring harnesses up in the front dinette area, problem is with new wires all over it is tough to tell for sure which is what. (Lights are wired with red at the back, don't know if that is original. Need to map all the wires out.)

So, where does the wire route before it runs through the ceiling, does it at some point run across the top and down to the block at the front street side, or does it go down the wall and under? Or perhaps neither of those is the correct guess...

Anyway, will see if we can do some additional invesitgation tomorrow... thanks again for the input! Appreciate it.

IIRC, the running light wire (as well as the wires for the brake/turn signal lights and backup lights) Enters the coach from the lower street (left) side, goes up to the end cap, hooks into the front clearance lights from left to right, then down the right main bow in the roof to the right clearance light, then around to the left.
