The Rear Running Lights On Our 1976 Coachman Leprechaun Motorhome Do Not Work
The running lights and tail lights in the rear (only) do not work. Running lights in front work, and brake lights work. All fuses in the boxes in the front and under the stove are fine, and the bulbs are all new in the lights.
Any help, as well as where I cam find an owner's manual and an electrical diagram for it.
ANSWER: Greetings Steve thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
From what you describe it still sounds like you have a blown fuse or possibly a bad ground on that circuit. You may have missed a fuse panel somewhere. Recheck the engine compartment for any fuse blocks you may have missed. Also check underneath the dashboard as there could be a fuse panel there. Also check in the Glove Box (if you have one) as I have seen fuse panels in those areas as well.
Since you have an older RV someone could have installed an inline fuse on the wiring leading to the rear of your RV. So you may have to crawl under the motorhome to trace the wiring and look for an in-line fuse. While you are under the motorhome check for any loose or dirty ground wires attached to the chassis of the RV.
As far as getting a Owner’s Manual and wiring diagram for your Coachman RV, the best place to find out if they are available is by contacting Coachmen Recreational Vehicle Company, LLC which is a division of Forest River, Inc. Their contact information is below.

Sometimes the Owner's Manuals can be ordered through an RV dealership. With the age of your RV do not be surprised if they no longer have the Owner's Manuals or Wiring Diagrams available. You could also Search eBay.com as I see Owner's Manuals pop up there all the time.
I hope that this information has been helpful to you.
