12 Volt Fuse Location

This has probably been discussed previously but I havenít been able to locate the thread. Anyhoo, I have a 2014 Sunseeker 3170DS. I canít get the kitchen or living room ceiling lights to operate. All the under cabinet lights throughout the camper work, as well as those in the hallway, bathroom, bedroom etc. Iíve checked the bulbs in the fixtures and they all work in other locations. I checked the main battery control panel, but donít see any fuses in there for 12 volt service. Is there another dedicated panel for the 12 volt system. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx in advance.

Some ceiling lights have both a wall switch and a switch on the light fixture. Both need to be turned on for the light to work. Look for a toggle or push button switch on the fixture.

Yes mine has a wall switch for each location, in the control panel above the fridge as well as a rocker switch on each fixture itself, no luck with those. I just assume Iím not getting power to those control panel switches hence the question as to fuse locations?

12v fuses are in the same panel as your 120vac breakers unless your Sunseeker is different than most. I don't know if there were LED's that lit when a fuse was blown for that year. If there are LED's then look for the one lit, the fuse will be next to it. I think the light switches need to be on for the LED to light.

Scrapper,
I found my fuse/breaker panel. It’s on the base of the bed. Never saw it before today. And you’re right, a red led lit up when I turned on the overhead light switch. Tried removing the fuse but when I wiggled the fuse the lights popped on.... go figure. But thanks for your help. Wife is happy��

Wingunder,
I feel your pain. I am sitting here laughing my ass off because I went threw the same thing looking for the breaker panel last year when my ac went out. Found it on the base of the bed also. At least they could have put it at eye level.

I don't ever remember seeing the fuse/breaker panel higher than floor level, in any RV.
