2001 Skamper Lights Not working

We went camping two weekends ago and the ceiling lights in my '01 Skamper would flicker on and off and right before we packed up to come home they flat out quit. I have looked all over and cannot find a problem with wires or connections. Any solutons? I am trying to fix this myself without having to call the RV man.....

You may simply have a loose connection on the converter. If you remove the cover on it, you should find a large gauge black wire and large gauge white wire that should be securely clamped onto the board of the converter. If they get loose, you will have flickering lights as well as a possible loss of power.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.
