2009 rw 1910

hello all!
first time on this site - lots of great info!
Last Fall (2010) we bought a 2009 RW 1910. Love the trailer, but having issues with the electrical. Battery is fully charged and connected properly, power winch to raise the roof works perfectly, but have no lights or fan inside the trailer. The galley is in the raise position to activate the switch...
I'm fresh out of ideas.
Anyone with a similar issue on the p/up trailers? Or any suggestions to try?

Thanks much in advance - from a p/up newbie.

Check your switch if it is good. By pass it to see if it work. Check your fuses also on the 12 volts side inside your converter.

On the switch there are 2 wires. Each wires makes one wire connection when the switch is live. Just touch these 2 wires together and if the light comes on the switch is defective. otherwise go for other problems like fuses or maybe a broken wire on your line fed by this switch? When you raise your roof there is a wire protector at the roof point to protect these wires. Maybe one is open in the circuit. A multi tester is very usefull to have on hand to find these electrical problems.
