Years ago I had a 2005 American Coach Tradition, basically the same or similar coach.

We had problems with the running lights and right side turn signals not working. Fuses and batteries and relays all good.

There is a big, maybe 2" round, plastic type grommit that goes through the fire wall under the entry steps to the outside front behind the fiberglass front cap.

It is there to make it clean and easy for the wires to pass through the fire wall. What happened in our case is on the outside where the wires pass through the plastic, it gets constantly wet from washing and driving in the rain. Along with the poor roads here in the northeast, the wires corroded and broke. So, sometimes they made contact and worked and other times they didnt work.

We chased that problem for weeks. If I remember correctly, we cut the brown wire marked running lights and the yellow wire marked turn signal, drilled through the plastic grommit and then ran a new through, soldered and heat shrinked it and never had that problem again.

Good luck, I hate electrical problems.!

I've heard of this many times with certain American Coaches.
However, on the Revolution, there is no wiring, passing through the under step storage.
Still betting on a bad ground return, in this case, with what the OP has been saying.
