No Kitchen or Living room lights

2011 Solera

The lights that operate off of the central control panel marked Kitchen and Living Room do not function. I have tried the switches on the fixtures with the control switch in both on and off positions.

Checked for 12 V on both sides of all fuses in the converter.

Pulled control panel and have 12 votls at the common wire tying the Kitchen and Living Room switches together.

Tested Kitchen switch and it appears to open/close properly.

Any Ideas? Is there another switch somewhere I am missing?

Are the grounds for ALL of these fixtures tied together and possibly loose? Where would that tie point be?

Is there a coach wiring diagram available?

Do you have 12 volts any place in the rig?
Bathroom lights?

It just may be a wire came loose at the panel fuse.
Don't forget that an open ground wire will do the same.

Hope this helps a little

ALL other 12 v functions fine. Even have 12 volts to the switches.

Possible surge through the lights could have blown all the bulbs. Pull them out and test bulb and/or socket for power

Since you have 12 volts at the switch, you may have lost the ground. Can you check from a light fixture to a chassis ground and see if you have 12 volts? If you do, you have either blown bulbs or have lost the ground to the fixtures.

I will check bulbs and see if I have a ground FROM the fixture to chassis.

Guess there is no overall wiring diagram available, right?

I would be checking for power and grounds at each fixture, like the rest said. Short of that is it possible that the on/off switches were turned off on the fixture itself..?

I might even pull the light fixture off the ceiling and check the wires coming in.
