Electrical question

We have a 2012 Crusader 320 RLT, And the lights over the sink continue to blow the 15 amp fuses. I have checked the wiring and do not see any problems.
If you can make a suggestion or have a answer I would appreciate the help.
Thanks, YogiBear

try swapping light with another one like it. When you say you checked the wiring, how did you check it?

I took the switch out to check it. I have not taken down each light as if yet. Hoping it is not a dead short in the wiring somewhere, but everyone I have talked to, feels that is the problem.
I do not have a voltage meter with me, but probably someone here in campground will have one.
Thanks for your help

Swap it with another light. Maybe it's the fixture itself. If your blowing fuses then there's obviously a dead short.

does it only blow when light is turned on? Power is in the wires all the time, so fuse would blow whether or not light is on. If only happening with light on, its in the light.

Dave, as soon as I put in a new bulb in either of the 2 hanging lights fuse blows immediately. Does not blow fuse without bulbs in sockets.

short most likely in the bulb socket. At least its not looking like a wiring problem.

I also have a additional question on the sensors in the storage tanks. Our Galley, and shower grey tanks continue to read 1/3 or 2/3 full, the black tank also seems stuck. We bought the granular tank cleaner and three weeks ago drove 2.5 hours to our new location with fresh water and cleaner in all tanks. Once emptied, didn't change anything.
Any suggestions?

Fingers crossed not the wiring. Will have to find a rv dealer that might carry lights like originally installed. Your help is most appreciated.
