Default Tail light and dash Light Fuze

I lost my tail lights and dash lights today on a trip. I'm sure it's a fuze, but any guidance on where to look? I still have brake lights, turn signals, 4-ways, etc. Just the tail lights and dash illumination are not working when I turn on the lights.

Snoop around on the forum (electrical). Both Heck Man & I have gone thru this. Answers, ideas, and solutions are posted.

un plug the toad and check your lights.
The toad may be shorting your system.

Brent, Do you have electrical schematic drawings for your coach? I’ve looked through the info that is available to me tonight and cannot find anything tagged “tail lights”. I did find a 15A fuse in the chassis electrical enclosure for the “park lights”. There also seems to be a 7.5A fuse in the secondary chassis electrical enclosure for the dash lights. See the two attached photos. Hope this info helps.

Tell us which relay was causing your dashlight and tail light problem. You never know when this problem will show up in another M380.
Thanks

Default Parking Light Relay

Dan, it was the parking light relay. My schematic on the door was different than yours, but it was the 15A Parking Light Relay. I pulled the relay from the fog lights (which was the same part), plugged it into the parking light location and all was good. Got a new part and I'm good. I bought two so I have a spare with me.
