You might try set up the account login. It could be interactive to some point.
Memory says Newmar uses their own chassis, is that correct?
Do you have the Owner's manual. Is there anything in it about chassis operation?

re-Checked the install of the headlight switch. every thing is good.

symptoms--
as soon as the ignition switch is turned on, the low beams turn on.
all relays are checked and operate properly. all fuses in the entire has been tested.

My guess it is from an ignition circuit.
You never noticed before that the headlights were on all the time? Did you have critters get in the rig and eat wiring?
Are the relays plug-in style? Pull the low beam relay and see if they still lit.
Have you tried to look for wiring diagram on Newmar's website?
Newmar


I'll get Newmar involved Monday.. they don't work Fridays.


Well that doesn't work either.
spent 2 days trying to get NEWMAR to answer the phone, that doesn't work, so I sent them e-mail, the answer was to have Newmar send them a e-mail. so I set waiting for a call back.

getting parts? right a way, service not so much.

I heard that Newmar had good customer support. Guess that is a myth!

OBTW,, Newmar gave us new Phone numbers. Apparently the phone tree doesn't work.
