In need of a little help

Two issues have popped up.

1. No over head lights in the galley. I have checked the 12 volt fuses in the bay beneath the driver's side window & have found nothing labeled galley, lights or anything else that may be related. Swapped the bulbs in the fixtures & they are good. The lights in the ceiling of the slides work.
Any ideas?

2. The slide in the bedroom which contains the bed works except that the bed now does not move with the slide. Once the slide/box is extended I have to push the bed out to meet the wall beneath the padded headboard.
It is a sleep number bed. Upon looking under the bed I can't see how it would be attached.
Any ideas?

Are you sure that you only have one 12 volt fuse panel? I have one outside below the drivers window and one adjacent to my 110 volt breaker panel inside the coach.

Do you have a multimeter to check for any voltage present? I am assuming there is none but just to be certain.

Here are a couple pictures of the inside 12 volt fuse box I discussed in my previous post. This is the fuse box that houses the fuse for my galley lights.

Check your bedroom closet for another fuse panel as shown in the pictures.

That was it. Fuse was definitely burnt. I thought that panel contained some spare fuses so didn't check it.

Thanks a bunch. I'll dance at your wedding.

Glad to hear you got it! And it's always helpful to hear how others have solved (... or are still in the process of solving) an issue. Makes for a great learning experience for all of us!

More times than I care to admit, as soon as I read about an issue and its resolution, I am find I am plagued by the same. Is there such a thing as mechanism-hypochondria?

Curious: You said "the bed NOW does not move....". Did it used to move and has now quit? Is it the bed frame, mattress and everything that you have to push out and only the walls move out with the slide? What about the floor, is it moving out with the walls?

The slide box is moving as it should. It is the complete bed frame & mattress that is not traveling with the slide. And yes it should be moving as one unit. I'll be tearing into it tomorrow.

If you had one of these you can inject a tone on the light wire and use the sniffer to find the other end, in this case a fuse block which happens just about every day.

The problem with the bed was the screws attaching it to the part of the slide had backed out. Took it apart to gain access & reinstalled the 8 screws & works good as new.
