Dimming lights

The lights in my bathroom (above the mirror and the ceiling light) have become very dim. At the same time, the power to my awning stopped working. All other lights work fine. What is causing this? I'm a newbie and don't know where to start. Also, I am plugged into 50 amp shore power.

You might have one of the wire crimps in the ceiling behind the lights coming loose and not making a proper connection. FR using a crimped connection

I should also say that the RV is stationary. Hasn't been moved since delivery in Dec 2015.

Ok there are a couple of things you can do pull down the dimming light fixture and pull on the connection where all the wires come together behind the fixture and see if the wires are loose both the power and neutral. If the loose connection is not there then you need to follow back to where the power connects where it goes thru the wall for the awning.
