Some lights not working

On my 2014 FR3-30 the lights above the sink, and the light/fan above the stove suddenly stopped working, no 12vdc. All other lights are working. Traced the wiring into a bundle above the furnace. Before I pull a couple of new wires, anyone have any ideas?

Tony,

By no 12VDC you mean that you measured both fixtures have no juice?

Can it be a coincidence?

Please find attached a 2015 fuse diagram, should not be too diff from your 2014....

Please keep us posted on this

On our 2014 30DS those light and plugs are controlled by the gfi in the bathroom. Have you checked?

If items are controlled by GFCI circuitry, they are not 12vDC.

Your are correct. Sorry, I misread his statement.

Look for the obvious first. FUSE? If nothing else on that side is 12v suspect they are fused together.

OK. Now that I've read your post, more closely, you might want to check (if you haven't already) the control panel in the bedroom. There are 2, 15 amp fuses next to each other (at least they are on ours). One controls the drivers side, the other the passenger side.

Found the problem. It took a while but I located the problem. In our 2014 the "CS Forward" fuse, 4th fuse from the top, located in the fuse panel in the bedroom, has a purple wire connected to the load side of the fuse. This purple wire is bundled with other wires, and crosses the rv near the shower. I was able to determine the wire was open between the furnace and the shower assembly. I should be able to splice repair. Last November, we were in Florida, and we had a kitchen sink drain leak. Being on vacation, I called a mobile rv repair guy, who repaired the leak. He had to cut through the pvc drain pipe in order to repair. Obviously he cut the wire. I was able to see where he cut through the protective covering over the wire bundle and cut the wire. One other wire was also nicked.

Phew.
