Default Problem with signal lights - parking lights.

I checked all my lights and discovered a problem that needs fixing...

The signal lights all work fine unless the park lights are on...when the park lights are on the right signal light caused the the rear of the coach to flash a weak signal on all the rear parking and right signal lights...

Where should I start looking first? I am thinking I will find continuity between the park lights cable and the right rear signal light cable... and that I will have a look at any toad wiring that may have been done first...expecting to find a short between the park park lights and rear right turn signal wire? but not sure where is the most likely place to look for it...

I did see that there was a recall on the wiring harness rubbing and shorting in the steering column, but I don't think that could be it since the Park lights cabling is not likely to pass through the steering column..

Anybody have any ideas?

Anytime I have had strange things happening with lights it usually ended up being a bad ground. I would check all the grounds starting at the rear. I have also had a bad bulb cause strange things as well.

Are the front turn signals affected ?

Les,
I had a similar problem on my old coach (90wb). One of the wires on the pigtail going to the trailer plug had rubbed thru and was grounding out the rear lights. Might be worth a look!

I would check all of the grounds of the lights at the rear as well as all of the connections at the trailer plug as Mike noted. It sounds like that is where the problem is originating.
