Over-the-air TV?
What kind of lights?
Is this a new symptom?
What has changed?

Cable TV

LED lights that have been in coach for about a year.

Started happening about a week ago.

Nothing has changed that I know of. I was thinking a connection/something must be loose. Today, closing the entry door also caused TV to lose signal. Tomorrow I am going to check antenna amplifier in electronics cabinet. I know it has nothing to do with cable, but the power button on it must be on to receive cable signal.

Do you have a heated basement, aquahot with blower etc?

We had an issue in zero temps turns out a fuse went to the blower. We have a thermostat in the wet bay and also a rocker switch to manually turn on the blower to test.

If you need heat in specific areas, and have or have access to the type 60 watt light bulbs that get hot, go to WalMart and get as many of the cheap drop lights (orange plastic) and extension cords as you need. My coach is in storage, and I have them all over ....drain valves, water pump, refer, washer/dryer and any other place I don't want frozen.

much thanks

Well all the comments are helping. I put a small heater in the water bay, added blanket under in the plastic tray, it all got thawed even at -16. of course the other side where the water heater is, water lines froze up. now I got the door to the furnaces open, checking that out now. thanks all for the help and comments. appreciate it.

Looking for some help on a blown fuse issue... can't figure out the cause? This is on my '07 American Tradition 40Z. It's the Bedroom Reading lights fuse on the PC board that blows the instant you push the associated button on the switch label for the reading lights. I've pulled all the lights down looking at the wiring for signs of a short.. nothing. Did the same with the switch panels... nothing. Everything looks OK on the PC board and with the wires that are label as going to that switch panel or lights. Any thoughts or advice as to what else to look at?? Thanks

Have you tried removing the bulb? Assuming it is not an LED fixture. That would be the place that positive and negative come together expecting a load instead of a short. Could the switch on the fixture or the wire from it be shorting to the grounded metal body of the fixture?

I would pull the bulb, and see if the fuse still blows. Is so go to the switch and disconnect the feed, and continue down the streamm untill the fuse no longer blows, and you have found your problem.

Have you disconnected it at the switch input for insuring that the wiring is good, up to that point. All clear, then disconnect the fixture for checking the rest of the circuitry. This should tell you something and for giving you something to go on.

I did remove bulbs, fixtures, and swapped switch panels (working downstream) to no avail... the fuse continues to blow once the button is pushed to turn those lights on (competing the ground and therefore the circuit). Guess I need an electrical expert who knows the circuitry and has the schematic for this model 40Z? Trip to REV Group in the future
