That was the first thing I did, then took out the rheostat, cleaned, reinstalled, checked the fuses again after reinstall, removed the rheostat, jumped the wires, checked the lights, checked the fuses again. All fuses are good as far as I can tell.

You need a meter or test light to go on from here.

You need a meter to check fuses. They can easily be blown and visually look okay.

Fixed it. Turns out it wasn't the rheostat at all. It was the headlight/parking light switch, a much cheaper fix. I hadn't noticed my running lights were out. Once I did I researched that and found that switch to be the problem. Pulled one out of a junk yard for 6$, popped it in and all is well.
