Interior light Problem 2004 Southwind

First post on this site. Just purchased a 2004 37C Southwind. Can anyone supply a wiring diagram for lights. Fuse box is located in bathroom under sink. Interior lights up front, 2 spotlights over frt seats. Light over easy chair, and first floresant do not work. Tried replacing fuses and they lit up for a few seconds and then blew the fuse. Haven't a clue where to start hunting for the short. Can anyone out there suggest a fix? Thanks Workhrse chassis

Call Fleetwood Customer Service. give them your FIN number and they should provide you with the wiring and plumbing diagrams for your coach. They have provided several of our club members with that information, but you need to have the FIN, Fleetwood Identification Number. You should be able to find in on a sticker usually outside under the drivers side window.

Howdy emmi and welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy the site. As mentioned by contacting Fleetwood with your coach ID they will provide you with what you need. I had the complete DC, AC wiring schematic and have them send a plumbing as well. Handy to have, believe me. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

First I would disconnect the wires to the two lights to see if that eliminates the short. If it does, hook one or the other back up to see which has the short. If disconnecting both doesn't eliminate the short, then the problem is in the wiring of the circuit - or some other 12v device on that circuit.

I also have a Fleetwood 04, 37C. I believe the two map lights, the forward florescent, and light over the chair, route to the entry pillar to the left of the entry door (switch panel), down into the exterior box which is to the left of the steps, then along the frame to the area below the bathroom. Although, I have never had your problem, I have burned out more bulb's in the light over the chair. I agree with Gary, un-wiring all then rewiring one at a time working to find the short. Also following the wiring loop, as it routes through the frame, where ware occurs, could be at fault also. Good Luck,
