Tail Light Problem

Today I went looking to find the reason my tail lights failed on the 2013 Jayco Seneca. Brake lights: good. Turn: good. Removed tail lights and attached to 12v supply. All good with tail and brake. Back in the RV, failed.

So, I searched this forum...first time doing that. Anyway, there were no posts that identified the problem, so I ran my own diagnostic procedure.

I've seen several posts regarding tail light problems. There are fuses and relays under a piece of plywood, stapled to carpet, under the driver's seat. (This is really lame and dangerous. Today I coated all my HUGE 12v leads (which were exposed) with sprayed rubber. If you drop a screwdriver or a fork and they touch those exposed leads, you're going to immediately have all battery power to ground...which = FIRE. Crazy enough. Hopefully someone at Jayco spends a couple dollars to make that thing safe.

Anyway, posts said that lots of folks found a bad fuse under the seat. Mine were all good. Therefore, I had to dig deeper.

Turns out there's a fuse under the hood, driver side in a box on the fender well. There's a fuse labeled "Bulkhead." This was cooked, so I replaced and tail light came back to life. Not sure why it burned, so I'm going to investigate, but for now thought I'd give that small piece of data for anyone looking for a failed tail light problem.

Cheers,
Ray
