Default Back up light issues

Hello: I just purchased a 2012 3500 chassis with a Forest River Solera body attached. This seems like a great rig but the back up lights do not work - I checked the bulbs and they are fine and there isn't any power coming to the socket. Everything else seems to be ok. It appears that there isn't a fuse for this. Does anyone have a tip or two on where to look?

I'd start on the Exterior Lighting pages of this 2007 wiring diagram: http://diysprinter.co.uk/reference/0...inter-2500.pdf

Specifically, Figure 26 "Back-up lamps circuit" ... they're fed from the Body Control Module (at the kick panel fuse block) which in turn is fed by the switch in the Shift Lever Module which then goes to a ground connection.

This very helpful. I hope to delve into it this weekend. Good possibility there is a wiring failure somewhere.

Thanks again.
