Wiring diagrams or tech manual

I have a 2002 Forest River Spinnaker, 35 CKT

My bedroom lights on either side if the bed, in the slide part, do not work. The bulbs are fine, and there are no blown fuses in the fuse panel. All the other inside lights work. Even the other bedroom lights all work. I believe it has something to do with the fact that it is on the bed slide. The basement lights also do not work. I don't see another fuse panel anywhere,

Is there an online wiring diagram anywhere? Any suggestions?

no such thing exists.
some have drawn their own diagrams but there isn't any source or place to acquire them.

So the manufacturer didn't create any wiring docs, or they just don't provide them to users?

Each line has "shop drawings" that show how a particular year/model is to be wired. Some lines even have color codes; while others just use a common wire size for all runs of that amperage.

Since they are shop drawings they are proprietary and not released to the general public (in fact even the dealerships don't get copies unless requested for a problem they can't solve).

I would be looking for a broken or corroded ground wire.

Have you thought about taking the dead lights down and replacing them with battery powered LED's?

Here's one that might be bright enough.
Fulcrum 30015-307 9 LED Anywhere Tap Light, Bronze - Amazon.com

These ARE NOT!!
Amazon.com: Fulcrum 30010-301 LED Battery-Operated Stick-On Tap Light, Silver, 3 Pack: Home Improvement
