Electrical problem - slideout lights

We own a 2001 National Seabreeze - we’ve lost the power to the lights in the slideout – the circuit to the lights appears to be dead – checked the fuses on the control panel, they’re ok – can’t see any breaks on the visible line <but much is hidden of course> - would there be another fuse somewhere that you would know of? Or would any electricians in the group have any ideas?

I would check were the wires flex when the slide moves. Just like a much bent paper clip, your wires (even stranded) can break at this spot.

Thanks for your reply - dumb question, when I look for where the flex feeds into the slideout I can see where it comes out the end of the slide bar, and where it feeds up into the body from under the chassis, but the section where it flexes is hidden between the inside floor of the coach and metal sheeting underneath the coach - the flex goes through a hole in the metal panelling - do I have to access by lifting the flooring in the coach?

Don't know on yours. Mine has the kitchen in the slide and I have a panel in the cabinet that when removed gives access to moving wires, plumbing and gas lines. Can you remove a portion of the metal sheeting under coach? Try leaving a light on in the slide and extending, retracting slide and whatch for a flickering light. If flickers than for sure a wiring problem at the flex section. Any National guys out there to help?
