Lights is slide out not working

I have a 2012 SV305 and the two melon lights in the main slide quit working sometime before camping season started and then the three regular white plastic lights quit working between yesterday and last week. The fuses and breakers are all in good shape as are all the bulbs. Any ideas? Anyone know where the wiring path for the slide is run to/from? Like outside/underneath the slide or do I need to dig somewhere? Or any other suggestions? Thanks all in advance for your help. I have attached a picture of the light to maybe give someone an idea of what I'm talking about.

Check the wiring underneath the slide where it moves with the slide for pinching, broken wires etc

I have that melon light over my slide, the wirier on mine go's through the top of the slide and then into the roof area. I'm glad I have a topper over it, what were they thinking? GOOD LUCK< it will take alot of tracing. Calling the factory will not do any good. They do have a schematic to the units, they say it depends who was working on the line. I tried to get one on my unit.

I found the problem. It was the butt connectors underneath the slide directly above the wheels. They came out of the plastic sleeve and corroded and eventually broke out out of the connector. Smart planning on forest river's part. Either way, fixed connections and everything works again. Thanks for the help folks.
