Overhead dash/dome lights

I have 2 halogen lights in front cabinet above dash. Both lights are controlled by dimmer switch on dash. Recently, both lights failed to come on. I replaced the bulbs and checked various fuses in battery and street side storage compartments and at electrical panel in bathroom of coach, and the lights still do not operate. The dimmer switch operates fine as far as dimming the dash lights.
Any ideas where to look next?

There is a fuse, and there may be a switch on the lamp itself.

Home is where I park it!

Overhead Lights

Hello Joe, I have a 2008 and the dimmer knob has a switch at the end of travel that turns the overhead lights on. When you turn the dimmer all the way up and go more you should feel the switch make. You could have a bad switch.

OP said bulbs were working but have now stopped--have to assume he knew how to turn them on before they stopped working....Vansco "powered" coaches are kind of hard to figure out sometimes....When all else fails, turn off the chassis battery switch and let the vansco modules reset for a minute or two--good luck......
