Living Room Lights

Mysteriously we now have none of the living room lights working. Last night everything was fine, this morning none of the lights work. I checked the breakers and they are all fine. I haven't checked the fuse but I wanted to ask this group if there is anything else I should check. I have reset the GFI in the bathroom just in case that had anything to do with it and it didn't fix the problem.

Any suggestions???

Do you have a rocker switch near the door that controls the living room lights? Once that is on, they can individually be switched on and off. I suppose it's so you can flip on lights as you enter. I've turned off the lights individually at night and then the next day coming back to a dark rv tried the rocker switch and nothing happens. If your rocker switch is off the individual lights won't work.

You're checking A/C circuits and the overhead lights are DC probably halogen bulbs. This will come from a fuse in the panel marked "ceiling fwd" or "lighting fwd" or close to that. Mine operated from a switch on the entrance wall which is a toggle switch. I would fool with that right after checking for a fuse. Operate it a few times and see if you can get it to engage. Mine is a 2012 but I know 11 are similar maybe earlier. Just checked a photo- mine are labled "15 amp LR lights" where LR are living room. Hope it helps. There are four fixtures in a row.

I had the same problem, ended up all the living room lights (5 total) burnt out. Since replacing haven't had any problems.

Ok, I didn't think fuses went bad that often but in this case it seems it was the fuse. I took the bad one out and put in a good one and it worked. I had already played with the switch on the wall. Thanks to all who responded.
