Light problem

I have a 2008 Cayman 39pbt that two light circuits quit working. One is the florescent light at the very front with a switch by the entrance door and bedroom, the second is the main ceiling lights in the bedroom with the switch next to the three way switch that will turn the front light on.
I have checked every fuse in the outside fuse boxes located in the front drivers side compartment as well as the one in the battery compartment and the ones bt the hot water tank. Is there another set of fuses hidden some where? Any other sugestions?

My 07 Neptune (sister coach to your Cayman) has a fuse block in the rear closet. These are fuses mainly for interior accessories, like the lights. Mine has the closet across the rear of the coach. If your floorplan is different, it should be somewhere inside near rear of coach.

What makes you think that you have 2 circuits out? All that and much more can be on one circuit. Use a multimeter at the switch locations and see what you find. If you find a hot circuit, temporarily touch the hot circuit to the non-working circuit. If they work you will know you have a blown fuse or a bad connection somewhere in the circuit. The fuses you are looking for are powered by the converter. That's the place to start

Thanks Chad,
I had checked those in the bedroom closet by the water heater. They both stopped at the same time so I presume they are on the same circuit.

thanks for the suggestion. I do think it is one circuit (power connection). I had pulled the switches and checked for power with volt meter.
electrical can be frustrating for sure!

I found some very loose ground wires and cleaned them up and made sure they were tight.
This didn't fix my problem though. Got frustrated enough I dropped it off at an "RV hospital"
hoping they can find the problem.

Thanks everyone for suggestions
