Fleetwood Bounder electrical issue

Hi, I was wondering if any of you guys have had an issue with the interior lights on the slide. The slide comes out and in good, but we don't have lights in the bathroom and the lights under the cabinets in the slide.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Lights in a slide rely on a flexible cable underneath.
Check the harness for breaks or possibly a loose plug.

Thanks,
We have been inside and out looking. We can't find any plugs but did find 3 cables and they look good. Any other ideas to look? The motorhome is all torn apart looking.

Use your multimeter on the wires you can find, and then chase them as far as possible. Hopefully to the sockets.

Is there power at those 2 black wires? 12v or 120v?

Are these lights 12V?

I would assume they are.

Check the 12v house fuses. Don't know where yours are. My 12v fuses are in the same cabinet as the 120v circuit breakers.

Had the same problem, checked the fuse and it was fine. Problem was the fuse was marked wrong. After checking all the fuses, I found the burnt one. Problem solved and the fuse is now marked as living area pot lights.
Hope this helps.

Also had this problem in my 2004 fleetwood southwind, no power to the living area slideout. check the fuse and breaker box (mine was in the bedroom on the wall to the bathroom. It was the ECC fuse (5 amp) check very close as mine was a very fine blown
fuse wire.
