No Brake Lights on Greyhawk

While returning from a camping trip yesterday I found out that I have no brake lights or rear turn signals. Reverse lights work. I was pulling a trailer and the lights on the trailer were fortunately working properly. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue? My first troubleshooting effort will be to check fuses but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Just experienced the same problem. What did your problem turn out to be?

I just replaced the bulbs. Think it might have had something to do with when I connected my trailer lights. Working g fine now.

Doubt it was due to plugging in the trailer. If it is a factory installed wire harness, the trailer plug is on its own fuse, under the hood. It is operated by a relay between the two circuits.

My problem turned out to be two blown bulbs as well. I figured it must be the fuse or wiring since both were out, but nope it was the bulbs.

Jagiven, I agree that it doesn't make sense that plugging in trailer lights would be the problem. I do have two others that told me that they experienced the same thing while plugging in their trailer lights. Anyway, time will tell.

The Ford E450 manual calls for a 3157LL. I could not find that bulb at the parts store with the correct base. I replaced with an 1157 and that seems to be working ok.
