Some 12v lights don't work

Just when we thought we had all the big problems solved - - along comes another one. The outside flood light, the light under the steps and the interior overhead lights (2) located under the cabinets that are over the couch, all decided at the same time they don't want to work. All other lights work fine. Any suggestions?

Bjstewart1..
I didn't notice what year AS you have so my info may not apply to you but I would look for a broken ground wire. Each light or 12v device in my trailer is grounded to the shell. It took me a bit of brainstorming for me to figure out how my 12v system worked and what the loose wires coming out of the interior meant. I love 12 volt!

Thanks for the idea Niki. It's a 92 excella. I'll send hubby out tomorrow to check for any broken wires.

That actually sounds more like a blown fuse.

Mark - I believe it has circuit breakers and they reset themselves.

bjStewart,

Circuit breaker, fuses?? Enough guesstamation goes on here without having to guess your model of Airstream as well. This is an excellant example of why all of us need to fill out our profiles.

What kind of trailer would be a minimum, where you're at would be helpful as well. Several forum members have actually been able to physically drive on over to each other's place and help one another, you would be surprised how helpful your fellow man can be and how small of a world it can actually be.

Chas
