Bedroom Light Acting Up

Our small fluorescents above the bed are not working all the time and now one in the hall also had 1 bulb go out. We replaced the 2 in the bedroom but nothing came on. May it be a capacitor or ballast burnt out???
It is parked right now between usage for a week and working only off solar. I fired up the generator but no change.
We own a 2013 Canyon Star....

I had fluorescents in my previous coach (SOB) and over the years several of them went bad. Typically it was the ballast. I end up replacing the fixtures with LED units that ran cooler and used a lot less power.

LEDís are a lot cheaper now. You might consider going that route.

Check to see if getting voltage. I assume 12 volts will be present. On our previous coach, replaced ours with LED tubes and were able to bypass the ballast. They were a really great replacement.

Turns out, did some trouble shooting and checked the fuses. Found a couple a little loose and now lights are working, so for now we will monitor this issue and if they act up convert to LED... Thanks.
