The running lights and brake lights circuits were both designed and installed by Ford. The E-350 chassis was used for a variety of vehicles, from cargo vans to RV and light utility trucks. The rear lighting will be the same schematic for these vehicles.

Schematics for these vehicles can be found in most public libraries, in technical or "shop"/repair manuals for almost every vehicle ever made. If your are not familiar with these manuals, ask a librarian for assistance in find the correct publication for a 1985 FORD E-350.

The RV manufacturer probably spliced into the Ford wiring for the rear lights on you vehicle. The fuses for both circuits should be under the hood.

If your brakes lights don't work, your cruise control should also stop functioning. The cruise control gets it's ground by being wired into the positive side of the brake lights. The ground is actually supplied across the filament of the brake light bulb. When power is supplied to the brake lights the cruise control loose it,s ground and stops working..

Get a manual from the library, and you should fix two problems at the same time.

SOURCE: Rear tail lights and running lights not working.

Make sure that the rear light fuse is not blown
If not trace the brown wire from the rear lights & check for continuity between lamp holder & fuse
As its both rear lights & front sidelights it will not be an earth fault

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

SOURCE: brake light is on at all times need a diagram on

You have two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing. Make sure your front master cylinder is slid all the way down against the switch housing. Check the lever and pivot pin for wear. If the front brake lever is loose and wobbly, the lever is worn and is not making the switch in the front switch housing. You can move the master cylinder away from the switch housing, move it up on the handlebars, and check the switch. It has a small plunger sticking out that is operated by a flat spot on the lever. The second switch in behind the engine. Find the metal brake line coming out of the rear master cylinder and follow it back towards the rear brake. You'll find a pressure switch in the line. Pull the wires off the pressure switch, if the light stays on, your front brake light switch is keeping it on. If the light goes off, the rear switch is bad, check it with an ohm meter. Contact me directly at and I'll send you a schematic. Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

I have onan 4k model# 4KYFA26100K, RV try to start it starts wont stay running, carb looks good oil level good fuse ok

the oil level sensor is a vital piece of equipment to save your engine when the oil level is too low
talk with generator repair shops as the sensor is generic and you may be able to get a good unit that fits another brand
you can test by bypassing it
however check the fuel flow through the metal tap as the corrode internally and block the flow of fuel--especially if you use e-mix fuel
the oil switch is screwed into the sump near the dipstick with 2 wires running back to a small box about the size of a match box

What is the switch for in bathroom sink of a 1978 Tioga rv?

Ah, I see, an RV!

Ask them direct. The only way anyone here would know is if they had that particular model. As with my last guess, I am going to guess turning on the power to the water heater.

They will supply wiring diagrams and schematics on request.

It is very difficult to find a manual for any certin type of rv or camper. Your best bet is to find a self help book that deals with rvs or campers in general. They should be able to tell you what you need.

How do I locate the charging system wires at the converter ?

Should have the basic schematic in your owner's manual. If not, contact the mfg and see if you can download one or have it mailed.

No luck? Google it. If persistent enough, you can find one.

RV manufacturers do not publish wiring diagrams. You will need to determine if there are other lights on the same circuit. From there determine which light is the last light in the series prior to the failed fixture and trace back from there.
