2004 Tioga 29v electrical problem.

My vent fan in the bathroom had a faulty switch. I had to wiggle it over and over to get the fan to come on. I went to the RV shop and bought a replacement push button switch. It had the same two black wires coming out of it as the one I replaced.I crimped on some connectors and the fan does not work at all. I have even tried switch the black wires and still nothing.The only fuse panel for the interior I can find is the front of the kick panel on my sofa(only one the manual speaks of as well). The two fuses labeled bathroom both have continuity when I check with my meter. Since I replaced the switch the light switch that turns on my vanity mirror lights does not work and same with the overhead dome light. Is there another fuse panel that is hidden? I don't know where to even look. I checked the wires feeding the fan switch and there was no juice.How could I of messed up two other electrical items by replacing a switch? The gfi outlet and water pump both work in the bathroom.
. Please help.Thanks

Did you check voltage at the terminal below the fuses if there is 12v there then the issue is in the fan area remove the trim and expose all the wires check to see if there is a junction for all the wiring for the bathroom at that point something had to pull loose and it's the feed wire because it worked before it's right there in that area might have to pull down the dome light also to check there sometimes fuses will show continuity but still be no good.

problem solved. I took the panel off the sofa and got in behind the fuse panel.I found 2 bad connections and a loose ground. Fixed and everything works again.
The funny thing is I spent like 8-9 hours on Weds. and Thurs. night trying to fix this before I headed out for 2 nights of camping this weekend.I bugged the heck out of me, everytime I went into the dark bathroom.I get home and fix the problem in about 15 minutes.
