Porch light,bathroom light, overhead sink light not working

Tonight we went to check on our 22 ft BTouring Cruiser & Porch light,bathroom light, overhead sink lights are not working. We’ve looked at the dudes, everything look ok, but Gulfstream has no information on what fuses go where on the panel. Recently I tried to fix the porch light & put a new one on, and was not successful, it didn’t work, now all of these lights, as I mentioned are out. Anybody have any wisdom on this. Thank you so much for any help in advance.

I've often found the fuses aren't adequately labeled. I've turned everything on, pulled a fuse, noted what's not working, replace that fuse and pull the next one. You'll soon have a 'map' of what fuse (dude?) powers which circuit. I've done it in my house, RV, and cruisers. It helps on a dark and stormy night when something fails.

You may have gotten this fixed, but if not, it is caused by the GFCI outlet in
the bath room tripping. Just press the reset button on that duplex GFCI outlet and all should work.

GCFI outlet only protects 120v AC outlet and any outlets wired to it. The light at the entrance door and most interior lights are 12v DC, so they would not be wired through a 120v AC outlet.

In the case of 12 volt. On the converter fuse box there is a auto type fuse labeled GFCI which controls the same lights. I referred to the Bathroom GFCI duplex receptacle because it controls the receptacles in the same locations. Sorry!

There is no 12 volt GFCI device. Your fuse panel must be labeld wrong. A GFCI device, being an outlet of breaker, is connected to any 120 volt outlet that is within 6' of any water source. Not connected to lighting.
