light mystery in slide

I have a salem 5th wheel and all the overhead lights work fine, except the lights in the living room/kitchen slide. They just went off one day and we checked fuses, light bulbs, switches, all seem fine. We are in a permanent spot in a campground and we are plugged into their electric supply. Any ideas?

to the forum.

If, in fact, all is harmonious with the fuses and circuit breakers, you may need to start chasing wires with a meter.

IF wires are exposed

If wires are exposed, the squirrels will chew the wires to grind their teeth down.

As mentioned before, look underneath the bump out for wire damage.
