Some ceiling lights don't work, some do

I have a new Georgetown 280. There are 4 ceiling lights in the main cabin and two ceiling lights in the bedroom. Here's the strange thing. One ceiling light stopped working in the main cabin (the one closes to the vent) and one stopped working in the bedroom (the one closest to the rear of the mh). I'm assuming each set of lights is on the same circuit.

Any suggestions?

If its something simple as burned out bulbs - do you just pull the bulbs out? Mine have the flat blade halogen type of bulbs.

Thanks for the help.

Ok, I just swapped out the bulbs and that didn't work. Now what? I'm confused.

do they work off a wall switch? If so do they have a switch on the light also and is it on?

They work off of a separate switch on each fixture.

That was my first guess, all fuses for lights are fine. I suppose its possible that for some odd reason FR put those two particular lights on a different circuit, which would be very strange. I'm stumped.

Soundslike it lost it's ground for that fixture. Check the grounding crimps. Should be one behind (or in) the fixture, and one wherever it crimps into the circuit ground.

I had somewhat the same problem. A connector had come off the back of the switch. Pull the switch out and check the connections, only takes a minute..

Condo: Thanks for giving me the obvious answer that I should have checked. LOL. That did the trick. I'm still beating my head on the wall for overlooking something so simple. Thanks again. I appreciate your help.
