Living room ceiling lights won't work

My bedroom and hall work fine on my 2011 berk but no lights come on including dimmer in living room ceiling. Checked breaker and all fuses and everything good. Tested wires to switch and they showed no juice. They did flicker on and off quickly in second but cannot get them to come on. Any ideas??

Check the middle toggle switch by the steps.

Yes it's handy when coming home in the dark. We sometimes forget and wonder what's wrong with the lights? Did that fix yours?

Phil you are the man!! Called Forest River and they didn't have a any idea except as to trace the wire and check fuse and connector. Called electrician out and he had no clue. I opened that panel and 1 of 3 switches on that darn thing was loose. Pushed switches in snugly and bam I had lights. I also filled up my 4 house batteries with distilled water as in need so I appreciate your trouble shooting mind as you sniffed it out!! Oh you a cold one when we cross paths!!!!

Cool. It's a weird setup. I wonder why after 3-4 years of use a wire would be loose.

Probably my driving!! Maybe vibration!! I just got back from southern Colorado for 9 days and didn't have living room ceiling lights. Did notice a few months ago they would come on and go off intermittently so I guess that was that one connection coming loose

It's amazing how these connections can rattle loose. On my old MH I had a connection rattle loose on the back of one of my air pressure gauges. At the time I was entering a mountainous section of HWY. Really got my heart going. Thank God for the air brake course

When you look at all these wires, connectors, fuses it is amazing!! I am 100% novice and had no clue what that stair switch did as no one ever explained. Phil is troubleshooting dude!! He knew where to send me as no one else mentioned that entry switch
