DC Ceiling Lights

04 HR Ambassador. There are 2 sets of DC lights. In my coach the ones underneath the cabinets & over the sink work. The second set consists of 6 DC florescent fixtures in the ceiling down the centerline of the coach & one in the bathroom. This second set stopped working all at once. I figured is was a blown fuse. I checked and determined the ones that still work are coming from the coach panel in the bedroom. Went into the chassis compartment on the left side under the driver's area. Couldn't find anything labeled for lights other than storage. I've checked every fuse on that panel. I found 2 blown ones & replaced them.
Still no lights and no more ideas where to look. Has anyone out there had and solved this problem????

If this is a new vehicle to you, are you sure there isn't a secondary switch somewhere in the coach that turns those all on/off at the same time? I hate those secondary switches and was just recently considering bypassing mine.

I would check the switch (s) and see if you have power there. Then check each light, the wiring is daisy chained and if there is a loose connection on the first connection none will work.

DC Lights

To Goodspike, there's a switch at the entry door and one in the bedroom. 3way switches are almost always suspects. And to Jack, there's no power at the entry door switch. It's closest to the front chassis electrical panel.
I'll start chasing power this afternoon and save the switches for the next phase.
Thanks guys.

There is likely a switch on the lights themselves as well. Got bit by that one a few times.
