Travel Trailer light fixture
Hi everyone
Just purchased my 1st RV, it's a 2018 20ft Wildwood trailer.
Just found out a couple of my interior ceiling LED lights are not working, but 1 of them is working.
Too bad I'm 3 hours from my dealer
Everything else seems to working fine (A/C, exterior lights, even stove light.
I've checked the fuses and all seem in good working order.
Seems like it might be a wiring issue with fixture.
Seems like unplugging the appropriate fuse would be a logical thing to do first but I dont see that on an videos I've watched.
Any advise?

I'd start by pulling the fixtures down that aren't working and seeing if you have 12 volts to any of them. Then I'd pull the fixture that is working and see if there's any of the wires broken or loose at the fixture.

Are these lights all on the same switch or separate? If all on the same, then pull the lights and check for voltage. If on separate, you'll need to check fuses, switches, wiring and the lights.

First question: Did they work when you had your PDI?

Lights working
We had the same problem with our new Wildwood. I found that some of the lights work on a switch, and some are independent. We ended up test with the light switch on and off. We found that all lights worked, you had to understand which were on the switch and which weren't.:signhavefun:

Travel Trailer light fixture
I had a similar problem with my 2017 Flagstaff. Light over the sink stopped working and it is on a an independent switch from the other lights. I decided to take a little short cut, so I took on of my working fixtures out and swapped it for the one not working and it worked just fine. I have 2 other fixtures with similar problems. Cheap light fixtures is the problem. I am going to a local light and battery store and find a better quality COB fixture to replace the bad ones. Just a suggestion.

Safe travels
