It's not uncommon for the wiring to break down where it flexes going to the slide. However, it could be broken anywhere.

Since it's obviously shorting during travel I'd start by opening the light fixtures and removing the lamps and checking them to make sure the short isn't the fixture itself.

You could also try 'shaking' the wiring while checking it for resistance with a multimeter. If you don't have a multimeter you could install a smaller fuse and do the same thing. When you shake the proper wire it should blow the fuse.
