help with lights in slide out

hello. I have a 1998 carriage carrie-lite 734RL. yesterday the lights in the living room super slide were working great like normal. this morning before we left I changed a light bulb that was burned out. the bulb has been burned out for a while but this morning I decided to change it. after I changed the bulb none of the lights in the slide out would work. we have 5 lights in the slide and nothing. all the outlets still work. I checked all the fuses and they looked good. I then changed all the "gen purpose" 20amp fuses and still nothing. all the light bulbs check out and all the other lights in the unit still work. this has me stumped. any ideas as what could be the problem. we use these lights quite a bit at night. thanks for any help.

During the time , between the lights working and changing the bulb and them not working , did you move the slide in or out?
May be a problem with the 12v supply to the slide, usually a coiled wire below the slide that follows the slide as it extends. You will need to check for power at both ends of that wiring with a multi-meter.
Lights in the slide are 12v, outlets are 110 so are supplied by different wiring.

no we never moved the slide. it rained last night but that shouldn't have affected it. will check the wiring. the last time this happened we just had a bad fuse.

found the problem. it was a 15 amp fuse marked "slideout" that was bad. there are three 15 amp slideout fuses and never thought to check those when I checked the other fuses. when I was doing my checks I noticed that the lights in the bedroom slide weren't working either. now with a new fuse they all came back on thanks again.
