12 Volt Problem

2006 Alpine Coach Limited... Lights over couch and dinette slide outs are not working. Checked fuse and is ok...All other lights and outlets are working..Seems to be the pink cable line in the 12 volt fuse panel box... Any suggestions on what I should look for? (Thanks)

A belated ; Welcome to iRV2. First post I see.

You will have to look under the slide to see how the 12v wires are hooked up, many times the wiring has to flex with every slide cycle, and the wire can break.
Are the lights that don't work , only in the slide?

Lights are located on 2 slide outs and a outside security light is affected...

According to the 12V schematics available at the ACA Tech Library, the pink wire junctions at the back of the light switch for the front security light, then heads to the other lights you state are not working.
If there is power out to the pink wire at the fuse block (as opposed to just checking the fuse) then I'd pop the bezel off that switch set, pull the switches out & check for proper connections & voltage there.

The wires in the slide outs if under the counter type run under the bottom board of the cabinets in question. Now would be a good time to replace them with LED's as the halogen ones can melt the plastic fixtures and cause a fire. I had to replace two different fixtures because of the heat issue. Get the blue/white LED's as that will give you the best reading and working light bandwidth.

Don't have a good source for the bulbs to save money.

I have changed all my interior lights to LED's with the exception of the toilet area, since we have a little puck light we use in there it's hardly ever on. I have not changed the vanity, bathroom sink area or the dining ones to LED's as those have lots of air apace and won't get hot enough to be a problem, as those burn out, they will be replaced with LED's I have changed the closet one to LED, and it's much brighter than the old type of bulb, we were always afraid it would be left on and cause a fire, now that is not an issue.
