Flagstaff 21QBHW (newbi issues)

First post, haven't camped since about 1990. We just purchased a new
A frame unit from the RV this past winter. Got it home in the rain yesterday and set it up today....and that's where I found my first problem. The exterior lights e.g., the one by the door work but neither of the lights mounted on the roof panel nor the roof fan work.

So I'm one of you experienced travelers can point me to the Happy Trail of RVing. Thanks for reading.

If it isn't loose wiring as Ridgeline1 mentioned checking the fuses is next. See Here for a complete list of fuses in your T21. Number 4 is the inside lights.

If that doesn't work post again and I'll look around in our T21 for anything else that might do it...

Thanks for your quick replies. I did check most of the fuses, a couple seemed really stuck in place. I think I'll wait for a new day before checking it again.

lights

When you open the door to the camper, in the right-hand corner , under the upholstery fabric that hangs down, there is a little switch. I think it is white in color. It is just a simple little push in and out thing that closes when you drop the roof. Mine was stuck also. All that was required to fix it was to push it in and let it come back out a few times so it could loosen up. It's the same kind of switch that controls the interior light on some refrigerators and car doors.
Easy fix! Happy camping!

Thanks to everyone who took time to support me in this project. As a couple of you suggested it was the switched in the corner, stuck in the closed position. Thanks to you it was a real simple fix. Everything else seemed to work fine so we will be heading out soon.

My ceiling lights have be ON at the fixture before they can be turned on at the switch.

Does the fan have ceiling and fixture switch?
