Hello guys,  my brake lights stay on all of the time. At first I thought it was some type of parking  lights or something.( I never was behind the bus when driving it.)   Trying to identify the brake lights so I can install the rear cap I realized I may have a problem.    Any suggestions?  Thanks

TThomas,
No Problem, just another thing you know now, If you are like me there have been many many new experiences with the bus.
I just have to write down the little things which I tend to forget, between bus usages.....

Another thing about brake lights is that newer buses will activate the brake lights any time the jake brake is activated.  Mine is a 1995 and I believe it does this.

Tomas, don't feel like the Lone Ranger ...I had my bus for almost 6 months before my little light bulb in my brain came on.  It's a dull day when ya don't learn something......
