Front Light and Front Storage Light [SOLVED]

On a 12 Flagstaff 8528RKWS does anyone know where the fuse is for the front storage area light and the light on the very front of the trailer. All fuses are ok in the coach fuse compartment and the side storage lights work as do all the rest of the 12v lights. Just the 2 in the front. Cannot find any resetable breakers around the batteries or anywhere in the landing jack area.

It's probably not a fuse, but the fixture or the switch. On mine the light at the pinbox works, but the one beside the front compartment door quit working the 1st summer we have it. I concluded that it was corrosion in the switch itself.

Don't you have two light fixtures in the basement? A single on the door side and a double fixture by the front access door. I'm sure that they're wired off the same supply as I was looking at adding a single fixture on the non-door side.

It was working on a light for my flag and I mistakenly shorted the switch to ground and out went the both the front light and the front storage light. The other storage lights still work.

You've pulled and looked at the 12V fuses or relying on the red indicator light to indicate a blown fuse? I seem to recall having a blown fuse but the red indicator light wasn't lit.

Was relying on the red lights, but will start pulling them and checking. Thanks.

Found it, but what is funny is there were 2 bad fuses. One evidently controls the red lights on the panel because when I replaced it, then the red light came on for the other blown fuse. Weird.

Thanks Dave, I appreciate your help.
