Interior lights not working

I have a 2012 Georgetown 280 and have a perplexing problem that I'm sure someone has a simple answer to. Their are six ceiling lights (two in the bedroom and four in the front part of the coach). The bedroom ceiling lights work fine, but the remaining four do not. All the other lights inside the coach work just fine. I've checked the fusebox located back in the bedroom and the fuses marked "interior lights" appear to be fine. Are these four lights on a different circuit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might check the GFIC plugs in the unit. Sometimes one can trip and needs to be reset

Just tried the GFCI plugs. They are all working just fine. Thanks for the suggestion. Im assuming the four front lights are on a different circuit than the two bedroom lights. All the other lights work fine (e.g. under cabinet lights and lights above the couch).

Not familiar with a 280, on my 378 there is separate fuses for
bedroom and living room lights.

Most lights are 12V and are controlled by fuses not breakers or GCFI 110V.

Lights are 12v correct?
Gfci ' s would have no effect on the interior lights if so.

Is it possible that the front ceiling lights are controlled by the fuses located in the fusebox by the driver's seat as opposed to the fuses located back in the bedroom?

Sounds as though you think all the lights are controlled by the same switch. Aren't the overheads controlled by a switch at the entrance by the step well? Have the lights ever been on?

I don't have a 280, I have a 300. The lights you are referring to in my coach are all turned on by a single switch located above the sink.

Ha! Ha! I'm running for president of the dunce club this year. Thanks Bubbles. That did the trick. Found out that my DW had turned off the switch without telling me thinking it turned off the outside light. We got a good laugh out of this one. Thanks once again to all the wonderful FR forum members for helping out so quickly.
