The PMMI boards were pretty good stuff,we don'y have many problems with them either.
Well, since you asked... just scroll to the bottom of the page...

OK here are 2 pics of the cavity above the driver. In the first pic, the solenoid farthest to the right appears to be for the blinker. The second shot just shows you there is no PMMI in there, just a nest of wires. The box i thought was the PMMI, is actually the radio.

Look at the size of the wires going to that. Way to large for a simple signal. Master ignition or perhaps an AT? The two on the left are more like it. One for left and one for right. Simple enough to test. turn the signal on. feel the solenoid. They click. Try left then right Is the clicking moving one to the other??

I'm telling you it's underneath on the chassis somewhere. They would not have run all the chassis lights inside and up above.

Aside from responding to Randy's challenge, the "Cornering Lights" link that I pointed out in Post # 81 takes you to a post by Ed Wimberley that mentions the location of the Potter Brumfield cornering light relays that were on his 82 Wanderlodge...... of course an 83 FC could be different.


Ken

On our 82 the relay's are inside compartment under driver just a couple of Potter Brumfield relays. Haven't located or looked on 84 yet I'm sure it will be different --they all are--.
I would start there for problem relays should be controlled by turn signal power wires which also connect on terminal strips inside compartment.

Yeah,but that was not by design!
Fords did some weird stuff.
I had a 72 ford truck,turn the flashers on,and then the left or right turn signal,and then put your foot on the brake and the radio would play.
All this without having the key in the ignition switch.
It would do the same thing on a 66 ford Galaxy,so for several years that little feedback was going on,in cars and trucks.


How did we figure that out?

Dana:


The first picture you show is what Blue Bird calls the "Overhead Load Center".


I have attached a copy of the electrical drawing for a 84FC Overhead Load Center which you may find useful.



On my 85 coach, Bluebird glued the drawing onto the back of the access panel to this overhead area. Is there a chance you have something similar on your coach?
