Question Dim 12v lights in bathroom

Anyone out there have knowledge concerning 12v weak and dim lights in bathroom of 38FL Cedar Creek 5er? All other 12v systems are working fine, including all other lights throughout. But, these 2 lights are barely working. They must have power because they turn on, but are extremely dim. Are they wired so if one is faulty it affects all in the same room?

I would take a look at the switch.

Check voltage at switch and at light. Most likely a loose connection, but have heard of the lights actually melting.

Check connections....
Sounds like a grounding problems but bulbs can go bad. Did you try a new bulb?

Check for loose ground connection.

Are the lights the round, recessed LED's? If so, they may be going bad. I've had to replace almost all of them in my CC38RD. FOREST RIVER has been good about sending replacements.

I would check the connector on the fixture wiring and the connections on the switch. I had one of my light go dim then out, when i pulled the fixture down I found the crimp on wire connector was not crimped properly and was melted.
