No I donít think so, all was working fine , I was tooling up the highway and changing lanes regularly and passing people, when all the sudden the side markers stopped working.
Sometimes when I first turn them on It will blink once and no more.
I think I just pass to many people, but I need to fix this for state inspection.

Is this one of the places I can up grade to a LED? ( the stock bulbs are new)

Same thing happened to me.... Check the ground and the socket base for conductivity. I found a broken wire there once but the casing seemed ok... caught it with a tester.

I may be mistaken †Angry †but I seem to recollect that †all of the TS & marker light lines †on front sides go through the junction box in top of front bay(I think they call it the AC Box). I had one on Left side that quit working on my 76 MC-8 and it turned out to be a loose connection in this box.

Iím a little disappointed at your response.
This will be in the archives and all newbies, will see low on blinker fluid.
Thatís something you tell the swift drivers.

When you run charter buses it's also something you tell drivers who leave their signal on from the time they pull out of the yard until they go home and in the middle of the night ya have to get up off the couch and go down to the shop and turn 'm off for the idiot who left 'm on!!! And yes I used to tell SWIFT drivers that when I was trucking! An also that they didn't have no trailer lights working when I'd catch 'm bobtailing! and last but not least SWIFT stands for ; Sure Wish I'd Finished Training! Whoop Whoop Cluck Cluck I thought I saw a Chicken Truck! Oh dat was me in da chicken truck! Cluck Cluck no chrome won't get ya home but atleast ya look good sitt'n on the side of the road! LOL! Yeah I'm sorry about mislead'n the newbies or FNG's but I'm still a little light headed from that brake cleaner I was using while I was under a bus in the pit! An I'm about to hit my 100 posts b4 I go to bed! Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin Shocked Cool  Knuckle  Cool Shocked Grin Cheesy Wink Smiley

The Swift Trucks have a large blinker fluid reservoir so they never run out
