Galley lights not working

We have a 2005 Fleetwood Revolution. The 3 galley lights in the ceiling have stopped working. Itís not the fluorescent tube lights as I tried them in the other living areas and they worked. Iíve checked breaker switches, reset the 2 wall switches that I canít remember name of but starts with a C, and checked the fuses located by the the breaker box inside. I have an RV repair guy coming but due to the weather probably wonít be till next week. Really missing the lights in the kitchen area. So, I thought if its something simple, maybe I could fix it. Iím not mechanically inclined so if itís not an easy fix, Iíll have to wait. Thanks in advance!

Did this "just happen" or where there a period of time when the lights would work, not work, work again?


Intermittent operation would suggest an initially failing connection somewhere. Sudden failure would suggest a tripped breaker, blown fuse or a wire that got cut, crushed, or pulled from a connection point. I'm not sure how your florescent lights are wired or supplied so I have no advice for the light fixtures themselves other than to verify they are, or are not, getting power.


I'd pop the switch out and inspect the wires and see if they're still connected at the switch. As I'm pretty handy with electrical tools I'd verify there was power to the switch and from the switch when in the "ON" position. If there is no power to the switch I'd be looking at fuses...

Might be a tripped GFI? Lot of times hey're all connected. Might be in bathroom or bedroom too.

It was sudden. One day worked, next was nothing. Iíve checked the GFI...I only know of two. In kitchen and bathroom. Iíll have to check on finding the other fuses. As for pulling the switch thatís above my very limited skills.

Do you have an outlet in a storage bay? If so, chances are very good it's a GFCI and the circuit powers more than just that outlet. Just another detail to check before the service person arrives or you take it for repairs.

Ceiling lights are 12 volt which should have nothing to do with GFI.
