1997 Tropical electrical issue

The bathroom light above mirror and one wall light in bedroom stopped working. I swapped bulbs, so I know it's an electrical problem.

Anyone else experience this issue?

Are they 12V? You could have a bad switch or fixture. Need a meter or test light.

The bedroom light is 12volt, not sure about bathroom fixture, but guessing it is 12 volt also. There is a rocker switch for water pump, light and fan on the bathroom panel

Tools buried in storage right now, will have to dig them out.

Yes, they are both 12v. Do you know where the 12v distribution panel is? It should be in the basement compartment between the door and right front tire. Check for a bad fuse on the panel. If the light in the bedroom is fluorescent may just a be a bad tube.

I had one BR wall light quit, it was just the push button switch. I have to assume it's the wall switch in the bath too. Get your voltmeter out

Have not checked out switches yet, still have to get test light / meter out of storage. Will look for fuse panel in basement. I just thought it was odd that both these lights stopped working at the same time.

The light in the bedroom takes automotive style bulbs, the bathroom lights are round white ones. Since water pump and ceiling fan are 12 volt, I figured the bathroom light must be also, since the switches are identical & on same panel.

Thanks all!
