Hi Everyone,

I am new to RVing and we have purchased a 2012 Forest River Surveyor SV264, we got Her about 3 weeks ago and have been out 2 times and we are going out this weekend, we Love the new Trailer.
We live in Grants Pass, Oregon and I like upgrading thing in the trailer, I have changed all of the interior 12V lights to Thin-Lite LED312-WW and what a difference they make, added a 16.5' LED lighting to the Awning, put on 3 new MaxxAir II Vent Covers, I just bought a New Graphic for the front of the trailer, cost was 86.20 and will be a big improvement to the look, I am having one problem with the 2 Lights just above the Sink not having 12 Volts, it also affected the Fan on the overhead Vent.

Does anyone know where I should look first for the loose connection?

Thanks All
Tim Hill

Welcome to the site and congrats on your first trailer.

The only thing I can think of is sometimes the lights and fan are on a switch. For example in my bathroom the lights and fan are on a switch on the wall. If the switch is off neither fixture works.

Not sure if that will help you or not?

Welcome to the forum and the world of RVing. As far as the fan on stove vent I had loose wiring causing not to work. Drop cover located under fan hood and re tighten may be same issue with lights over kitchen or fuse some where. Enjoy and
