truck lighting

My son called me to ask what to check/do to fix a no rear tail lights,but all other lights function as normal brakes,directional,back-up,stop. dash lights appear to have gone out at the same time. Problem came about during/after a rain storm. he checked fuses,and was wondering if a relay might be the culprit. Sorry to say i'm not of much help,so i ask the experts here.
Thanks

Look at the fuses that are in the cabin area, as well as under the hood. I would actually pull the fuse and test it using a multimeter, or test light at least. I have seen fuses that looked fine, but were actually burned out.

If all the fuses are fine, then it I suppose it could be a relay. I have replaced 10x more fuses, in vehicles as opposed to relays.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

Thats what i was leaning to also. i will offer to check things out for him. I suspect water from the rain got into some wiring and popped a fuse maybe.
Thanks for your reply.
