12v Lights not working, roof fan is...


I have a 2005 Rockwood 2516G popup with an odd issue.

The 12v roof lights are not working, but the ceiling exhaust fan is!

I have checked and replaced the fuses and verified the kill switch under the sink is fine. When I press the kill switch the fan stops as I would expect.

Anything else I am missing?

Sounds like it may be a loose connection after the circuit splits off from the fan. I guess it could be blown lights, but if there's more than one, that wouldn't be likely.

Look for any connections in the circuit after the wires leave the kill switch.

Did you check the kill switch? It should be under or near the sink.

Sometimes a crimp connection can be improperly done and eventually fail. The lights in the slide in our TT were flickering for quite a while. I almost ordered new lights and then checked the connections. Sure enough, a wire was barely hanging on because of bad workmanship.

I'd check all the connections at the fan, lights and switch. A voltmeter might come in handy.
