What's with all the here and here and here stuff???
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 1 year ago.

Hello, if the light is not going out you may have it on the wrong terminal. I'll post a diagram below for you on how it should be connected. I'm thinking you likely have it on the "sense" terminal. Let me know if I can help further.

Thank you very much for the diagram I also have that seem diagram my question is a motorhome apparently has a really turns the light on and off and also drives the tachometer I had not aware of the location it's not in any of the normal relay boxes And being able to identify the wire ends it does not give a color coding on the diagrams that I have for this coach

On this model they put the relay in line in the harness you'll need to contact Monaco for the schematic with location which they will provide for free. Here's the contact info.
