I was out for the 1st time at night and noticed that both red and green navigation lights are out and one of my docking lights. I have an 07 GG and figured that they shouldn't have burned out yet. Is there a fuse that may be blown? Any suggestions because my warranty expired May 1 2008.

Since you have one docking light working, I would think the nav light and your other docking light have lost their ground.

where might this ground be located? All help appreciated.

I would suspect the nav light and docking light grounds are connected (or in this case unconnected) together so I would look up front and trace the ground from either light. If they attach together then test the attach point with a ohmmeter connected to a known ground source. If the disconnect is hard to find then just run a new black ground wire from the light that does work to the other two lights. Electrons aren't picky which way they go home as long as the bus is big enough to seat them all (wire size) and you shouldn't have that problem.
