We have a 2007 Coachmen Aurora. All our twelve volt lights go out for about two minutes then come back on. It does this at random times, no set pattern. I have been told it could be the circuit breaker but have been unable to locate that. Anyone have any suggestions.

I could be a Auto Resetting Circuit Breaker, these automatically reset themselves. I do not like them because of a fire potential. When it detects a short it heats up and shutsoff and then cools and turns the circuit back on whether it has been fixed or not. They are usually silver metal and plugs in just like a fuse. When the lights shut off feel all the fuses and you should find a hot to the touch breaker. Peterbuilt used these for years.

Had a similar problem with 2 12volt lights over couch. Could not find the ground wire so I installed a new ground wire and that fixed the problem. Fortunately I could hide the new wires, so no big problem.

Check the output line from your converter. About half the manuf. install a auto. reset circuit breaker on the output side of the converter. It is usually about 6 to 12 inches from the converter. It will be about 3/4 by 1 inches in size and silver or black.
