Just a thought but are you using the correct bulbs? Can you narrow it down to one light or the other??

Bought bulbs at rv store, tried one bulb in one fixture at a time, no bulb in the other fixture, as soon as I turned on the switch fuse blew on both fixtures, which does not make much sense that both fixtures would bad at same time.
Do u think it would be worth trying LED bulbs instead?

Just doesn't sound right to me. Very unlikely you had two fixtures fail at the same exact time, although it is possible but very rare. Do you have another bulb in another light somewhere in the RV you can try? I'm thinking it's the bulbs you bought.

that's what we are here for, to help each other out. As far as your black tank, you can install a tank flush kit that will clean the sensors off. Lots of chemicals available to add to tanks to clean them also. Everyone has their own way they have found that works for them. Here is a link to the tank flusher I installed in my last camper. Worked great.

Most likely these are 6 volts bulbs, no circuit breaker, these are fuses.....

Well guys, no luck on bulbs, all other lights use different style bulb. The 2 lights use a automotive signal light style bulb (CEC 1076)
