oh, that type. Those sockets can go bad due to spring and plate internally that make contact.

OK these bulbs are 12 volts, but maybe the wrong ones. Look inside your light fixture, is there two contacts are just one?

Being the dummy I am, the number on the replacement bulb is different from the original, that may be a something, but still don't understand how both burned out at same time???

some are interchangeable, just different watts so different numbers. As long as same number of contacts

Stupid me replacement bulbs only have one contact point!!! Holy smokes that will never work, and probably the problem after driving u guys nuts trying to help. I will go back to Rv dealer and see if the correct bulbs. The single point would cause a dead short right off. Wow I can be so silly some times. Thanks to all for asking me the right questions

Good to hear you got it figured out.

Electrical issues can be frustrating at times.
