Default Passenger side turn signal

Is there anything anyone can think of on a 90s vintage PT 40 that can cause the passenger side brake lights not to function when everything else functions.
I’ll turn signals function
Drivers side brake lights function
Headlights/ rear driving lights, function
The only thing that does not function is the right side break lights.
The way I see it it has to be a wiring issue from the origin of the brake lights to the right side of the bus.
I know all the signals originate on the driver side. And that there should be no difference between the brake light source on the driver side and the brake light source on the passenger side.
Right now I’m stopped in the middle of the road waiting to get my lights fixed

Really ??? You stopped in the middle of the road because of a faulty tail light ?
Rule # 1 is get to a safe place and then chase the problem.

Mark, do they work when not hooked up to the towed? It sounds like you are currently hooked up given your statement.

OK, I was just pulling out of our friends home after being there for over three weeks.
We had just pulled into the cul-de-sac to hook up and do our tail light check when it was determined that the tail lights as described above were malfunctioning.
Ginger would not let me go any further until we fix the problem Ginger would not let me go any further until we fix the problem. I would not stop in the middle of the road to fix this problem if it were not in a safe place.

We have back, back into the spot we left departed from. I have had lunch and now and I am now ready to start working on this problem again. It has been raining here in Seattle I am going to start with a hair dryer and make sure all my connections or dry inside my stupid Volvo tail lights and work my way back.
Unless there are any other constructive ideas?

I recently had my right, brake only, taillight on the toad not working. Trace from taillight to bus checked good. Touched all the butt connectors and grounds where they all come together in the engine bay, and it started working again.
For another day, a month, another 21 years, who cares.

I think this response was in answer to my question, but I'm not sure. I wasn't concerned about the towed lights but more about the bus connection. I guess what I was asking is, do the bus lights work ok when not hooked up to the towed, or are they out no matter if you are hooked up or not.

OK Mark,just so we are all on the same page this is your 91 Wide Body,right?
The PT"s last model year was 1988.
This helps,it really does.
I hope John W pops in here,he has a 91 WB.
I wonder if the early WB used the PMMI type relay system to send signals to the back of the coach?
