Bedroom Light Problem

The under cabinet lights and reading lights over the bed in our 2010 Berkshire have stopped working. The ceiling lights and closet lights are working fine. I've checked every fuse I could find. Anyone got any ideas on what might be the problem? Thanks

Have you checked the GFI outlets? The lights may be wired through on of those. I would reset all the GFI outlets to see if that helps.

12 volt, try an 1156 bulb.

The fact that more than one light is involved leads me to think:

1) Fuse (which you checked)

2) Wire nut separation (wire pulled out of nut). Look at all the light connections starting at the last one that works and moving back to the bedroom. You might find a loose or missing wire nut and a hanging wire (happens).

I did not check the bulbs but I will. Seems strange that all 4 would go bad at the same time but it's worth a try. Thank you

The two reading lights above the we're not working on mine when I first got it. Did not look on pdi. So I figured I have a wiring problem. Checked fuse and all the pulled the shelf up inside cabinet and power. So I checked the bulb, it was bad. I just hate to admit that I tried the easiest thing last, especially to wife. Lol

After checking bulbs, GFI's, and wires I decided to recheck the fuses and sure enough I had a bad fuse. Thank you all for your replies and ideas.
