help, 12v center light not working.

I have a 75 31' land yacht and the center overhead light will not work. I checked the wire for voltage and there is no power to it. It was working and then just stopped. I just got the trailer and was going throught the thing and removing junk, from under the beds and in the overheads, etc. and then it stopped working. all the other overhead lights and all other thing 12v work except that the power outlet by the street side twin bed went out at the same time.

Does anyone know if these two are connected in some way and or where all the lighting black wire come together?

Thanks...

Hi, and welcome to the forums. Check your fuses in your univolt. Sounds like yuo blew a fuse, or just maybe moved a wire on the power connector to the 12v outlet.

I assume you other lights are working. If that is the case check all the areas where you moved things around I suspect that you loosened a connection. I use a good flashlight to inspect all the storage compartments and under lockers and sinks. This is a good way to locate where many of the electrical connections are on the trailer. The good thing is that you know it was working and that moving objects caused it to stop so the open connection will be easy to find.

Good Luck
Jim

I had the same problem in my '75 Argosy. I found where a wire was broken at a junction area in my upper storage compartment. Hope this helps!

You could possibly have a switch that controls that light, that is next to the entrance door opening, on the wall just forward of the door.
