Pendant light Replacement Problem ...
Received new pendant lights under warranty for over the island in our new Cherokee 39FL as original bulbs burnt out after 3 weeks and could not remove bulbs as instructed by dealer / Forest river customer service rep , would like advice replacing them as have tried and fuse keeps blowing after install .
Fuse #2 in elec panel controls the 2 island pendant lights in kitchen area plus 2 LED ceiling lights and ceiling fan in living room area .
There is one wall switch for the pendant lights in the kitchen and another switch controls the ceiling fan and the LED ceiling lights .
Turned pendant light switch on with new bulb with no success and then the switch controlling the LED lights / ceiling fan which went on for a few seconds then fuse blew .
Where have I gone wrong with the following steps I took ? :
- turned power off at main breaker , replaced blown fuse ( left new fuse in panel when power turned back on after replacing one fixture ) ,
removed fixture by cutting wires and spliced white / white and red / red to new fixture with marrettes / elec tape .
Left other fixture with burnt out bulb in place - will replacing both fixtures solve the fuse blowing issue ?
Read on a similar thread the fuse should be removed until fixture (s) are replaced and should I disconnect / shut down the battery before cutting wires connected to the fixtures ?
Hauling the trailer in to our local dealer for a look see is out of the question as it's blocked up and service calls aren't done by dealers in our area .
Local electrician is our next step obviously .
Also seems the 1076 bulbs commonly used in these lights a should be replaced by 1156 LED's re other folks with similar 1076 bulb issues .
Thanks for any advice and happy trails .
