First RV is a 1984 Winnebago Chieftain. Chevy 454 P30 22 FT. I have searched for the 22 FT Chieftain, not with much luck. Seems most are 27 and up. Rig is pretty good shape. Had a few leaks in roof after first trip with it. It had been sitting for a couple of years. I have noticed I have lost elecrical power in outlet in bath and light over table no longer works. Was working on last trip but outside metal was hot to touch. Any ideas? I also posted this in the new members area.

light is most likely a bulb, Check the breaker for the bathroom circuit. If ok then you will have to do some trouble shooting on the 12 volt [lights], and the 120 volt side for the bathroom. Can't help on the shorter model but would say it was a special edition or special order maybe??
Good luck with the projects and welcome to the forum,

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Update
Bath Outlet- breaker was tripped. Reset and notice it will stay on for about 10 minutes and trips. Checked wiring digrams, checked continuity in wires. I believe it to be the breaker. Any other suggestions as to what it might be?
Light- pulled light and noticed burnt(dark spot) on board Replace light.
