electrical issue

My wife and I own a 03 TravelSupreme Select 41' MH with Xantrex Freedom Combi inverter. When we turn on the vanity lights all lights flicker/fade and go out. Seems to happen only with the vanity lights as near as we notice. If I then push reset on the inverter they come on. Don't know why that would make any difference! I had the batteries tested and they prove to be good with plenty of charge. Not sure what is next! I am electrically challanged so need simple answers to this issue. I think I need a brief education on exactly how the DC lights work when coming from the batteries. Thanks for your input and insight. Tim

Try removing the light bulbs and turning on the switch. If you still pop the breaker it's the fixture, if your lucky one or more of the bulbs is shorted out and need replaceing.
If the Vanity lights are florescent then it's probably a ballest gone bad. There are banner ads on this page for fixtures for sale.
