Melting light fixtures, dead wires
My 2013 (I bought it in '12) Forest River Rockwood Mini Light has been having a problem with the double light fixtures that are in five places in my TT.
With regular filament bulbs, some of them get so hot that the plastic slot that the bulb plugs into discolors and distorts. I bought LEDs, but the rectangular slot is a little loose, and they tend to fall out or disconnect. taping them in place helps for a while, but it's a pain.
One of them quit working after I switched it to LEDs. I bought a new fixture that uses round-based bulbs, and it didn't work either. I replaced a pretty melted one that only had one working slot and it worked fine in that spot, so the wires are dead on the first one. The LED bulbs stay in place, also.
This dead spot is underneath my cabinets on that side. The wires are in a small space between the outside bottom of the cabinets and the inside bottom shelf. I see no way of getting to these wires without tearing out a bunch of woodwork.
What's up with light fixtures melting with normal use?
Would it be worth while trying to remove the CD player/radio that's a few feet to the side of the dead fixture? I'm hoping that I can find where the lights have been spliced in to the system, because that seem like the most likely problem.
