I have a 1088 wb40 and i'm looking for the location of the reverse lights relay? It doesn't seem to be with the relays in front. Any suggestions on another location for the relays?



thanlks

Ron,i think the dash switch has to be on,the engine running and the trans in reverse before the lights work.
You didn't tell us the problem or what you have done to find it.
I don't know where the relay is,but someone will be along to help.

Thanks for the reply Randy.



The problem with the reverse lights is that they stay on and don't go off.



I found wiring diagrams here but they are not correct to my coach. Now I have lost my park lights also and dash lights. Its difficult to chase these issues without proper diagrams and also locations of the relays. i'm lost as where to find information for these issues.



I'm also limited as to how to navigate WOG correctly. I've noticed that is a wealth of information. Any guidance would be helpful.....im beyond frustrated


thanks Ron

Start pulling relays until the lights go off,it may be a stuck relay!
(one at a time!)
