Lights not working in 1977 Dodge Delta

We just bought our first RV and things were working fine then this past weekend (second trip out) the ceiling lights stopped working. They worked for a while, then they stopped for hours then came back on for hours then nothing. The wall lights and outlets work. My main concern are the lights that run the ceiling since they give it the "supper club" look I bought it for. What's not working are the lights that run across the ceiling, the lights in the cupboards, and the exterior lights by the entrance. The fridge also stopped working, not sure if that's related. We checked the outlet the fridge was plugged into and it is working. Any suggestions where to start?

First thing is to have a volt meter and a 12v test light. The 12v lighting in RV's usually spliced off a main wire with cheap connectors and from the sound of things your dealing with a bad connection.
Are the lights switched at the ceiling or powered from a wall switch or both ?
What brand and model is the fridge?
We'll see if we can find a troubleshooting guide.
