Check in your electrical distribution box for a blown fuse. Or, you could have one of these in line somewhere between battery and switches. The little black button on the end is a reset

Thanks no blow fuse in electrical box. Would that in line fuse be before the converter ? Everything else works but the 3 switches to outside lights and interior lights by door entrance. I looked behind switches and didn’t see any in line fuse

So I should just trace cables from battery and see where they go to find Inline fuse?

Yes. They're usually not too far from the battery.

Is that in line fuse just for the switches for lights? I wish there was a wiring diagram for this camper
That in line fuse if it was tripped it wouldn’t shut off everything or just certain circuits?

OK, so I'm assuming a TT. Follow the battery cables from the battery to where they disappear just under the front nose. The negative will most likely be screwed to the frame somewhere nearby. The positive(s) (red, hopefully) could possibly go to one or more of those resettable circuit breakers which may be mounted to the front lower crossbar (frame). If not, and the cables continue through, over or under the frame, you'll just have to trace them out. Good luck.

I have a large 5th wheel so the electrical system is probably a bit more intricate than a TT. Here's what mine looks like. Yours might look smaller, simpler or just be individual breakers. Keep us informed. Believe it or not, there are 4 circuit breakers in there.

Do your interior lights have a little button in the center ? Certain LED lights, like the ones in my TT can be either turned on by the wall switch or the button in the center of the light. My awning lights and other accent lighting all seem to come off the converter...if I remember my fuses correctly. You plugged into Shore Power ?

Make sure someone didn't work the lights with the remote. Someone sometime did on mine and couldn't turn them off.

Wiring and plumbing diagrams don't exist for most TT's / Fivers. When manufactured, the wiring seems to be wherever the assembler at that time feels like putting it. Tech showed me a trailer identical to mine and the wiring was significantly different than the way mine was wired.

I don't think I've ever seen a wiring diagram for any of those units. If you'll post the model of you unit, an owner of the same model may have made one of their own. Even with that, your unit and another identical unit may be wired differently.

What in particular are you looking for?

Yes it would. But first they need to have a "standard" for how and where the wires are run. Until then....it's a crapshoot trying to trace where everything goes.

bama rambler i was looking to find out why my awning outside lights dont work and part of interior lights either. my switches dont work for those lights. i found a cut wire where my awning retracks go to top led light i think water got in and shorted the light. all 3 switches seem to be connected and i checked electrical box and no blown fuse
