Default Right Rear Stop & Turn signal bulb not working.

This is on a 2004 37 ft. Sunvoyager on the W22 Workhorse. Put new bulb in and it still doesn't work. Is there a fuse somewhere for this??? Manual is worthless.

Darby,

These things are a tad tricky to diagnose long distance, & I most likely won't be able to. Let me ask a few questions that could help.

* Does the left rear turn signal work?
* Does the right front turn signal work?
* Do you have a trailer or your toad lighting plug that you can insert into the trailering plug to see if right turn signal lamp works via that trailer plug?

There does not appear to be any fuses associated with the Gulf Stream wiring. That means that the turn signals are fused on Workhorse fuse blocks (I have no drawings). Those would be either under the dash or in the engine compartment.

Are you sure the new bulb is a good bulb?

Let's see how you answer the above questions.

Yes the left front & rear works and also the right front turn works, I am going to pull car around and hook it up and see if they work on the car

So far, it's indicating to me that the new bulb is also bad, though wiring is not yet eliminated. I believe the chance of a blown fuse is eliminated.

Waiting to hear the car hookup results.

Default OK got it fixed

Went out and hooked up the car with the cord and the lights all worked on the car so I knew it must be a connector somewhere. Crawled under the back and seen the connector, it was together but was not making a good connection. I took a plastic wire tie and put around the connector and pulled it tight. All OK now. Glad I seen this before Monday morning when we are leaving.
Thanks for the help.

Good job Darby,

With the report of trailer harness working, that left only the connector that you found or the lamp connector.

Any idea what caused the connector to partially come apart? Does it hang down, possibly drag, or just vibrate?

Happy travels,

Bob I am not sure but it is located where the hitch is bolted onto the frame. It may have been pushed together tight enough but I though I would just take a plastic wire tie and go around both sides and pull tight . That way it can't come apart until the wire tie is cut.
You know it is an ongoing battle to keep everything working on one of these things. I am just glad I am able to do most of it myself. I don't think I could afford to own one if I had to take to the shop every time something happened.
