awning and porch/step light

Both do not work, wondering where the fuse might be. I checked the main panel, not sure if it would be up front in the storage area, any ideas? thanks

pull the plastic covers that hide the wires in your awning arms going to the awning light there may be an inline fuse there, this is a guess on my part good luck.

I checked there, no inline fuse. I did go in the front compartment, saw 5 amp fuses for patio(assume that's the porch/step fuse), then the awning light fuse, all fuses good.

Not sure this will help.....Our undercarriage lights and the back door light went out. There was a plug into the electrical system underneath the right side of the front door that had come unplugged.
Once we plugged it back in, no more problems.

Good Luck

I'll look for that, I did get some fuses, but have not tried them yet.

On my Cedar Creek a 2016 34RL, there are fuse that are located at the converter behind a plastic panel in the hallway. There is also 120V circuit breakers located here also. I have had to replace a fuse in this location once do to a short.

You may know this already.

My awing light is controlled by a switch on the outside wall by the steps, with two other switches.

The porch/step light is controlled by a rocker switch, which is in the same compartment were the slide, awning switches, water heater and tank heaters are located.

I would also check the wiring at these switches too to insure the wiring is still connected.

thats my next step, I did replace the fuses, checked the 12 vt ones in the main fuse box (converter) No to the switches. Thanks
