There is only one fuse for both security lights. Might check to see if there is power to the light it's self. Pull light off and then check voltage on both power and ground. Tom

Hi Knot-Fly'n,
Like Tom posted, there is only one fuse for both lights. Maybe the socket is corroded or a wire has fallen off. If the ground wire is good, finding where the power is being lost will be a challenge. Consider calling Newmar customer service at 800-731-8300.

We have four lights and four switches in ours and I don't know about the fuses as I've never had to find/replace them.

I replaced both lights with the motion activated type and rewired the switch so it is always in the ON position. When it gets dark the lights automatically are in the watch mode. when movement detected they turn on where the motion was detected. Thinking about installing another one on the front and rear of MH for safety. They would be wired with a switch so they don't activate while driving. safe travels... ed
