Bounder interior slide lights not working

I am fixing a 12v lighting issue for a friend with a 2000 Fleetwood Bounder 34T gas coach. There appears to be an open ground between the fuse panel and light junction box at the forward side of the dinette inside. This junction box feeds a seperate circuit to the basement lights via a switch at the entry door. This same box contains a molded electrical cable that contains this circuit plus the interior slide lights. It is a six wire cable with two conductors clipped off. This cable travels along the slide forward to the drivers front of the slide then travels through the slide extension rails...it then is not observable under the undercarriage sheet metal. Fleetwood shows another junction box on their drawing at the rear of the slide at a flexible portion of the cable to accommodate the slide in and out action.

Does anyone know where to find this junction box where the molded cable
splits the circuits for the basement light and interior slide lights? Many hours exhausted through searching for a fix to this light outage, but the junction box could be where the poor ground is. The multi meter confirms poor voltage at the slide light fuse located in the the panel by the bedroom.

Any help is appreciated.

My Southwind may be similar.

On mine, the 12 volt and 110 volt are in separate "SJO" three wire cords. From the junction box on the floor of the slide, they go through the floor, then get routed to the inside of the metal rectangular slide tube frame (the one with the rollers). They exit the frame slide tub inside the forward heated sub floor compartment storage area.

On my passenger side, the baggage compartment that has the propane tank, There is a small compartment above the propane tank. If I look carefully toward the back of this compartment, there is a heavy duty fabric flap. I can lift this flap and will see the heated space between the frame rails. This is where the wires come out of the slide tube and go into a junction box. (see the photo).

In the photo, you can see these two "SJO" cables exiting the slide frame tube. From here they get routed to a junction box in the heated storage compartment.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
