Led ceiling lights stopped working

The led ceiling lights in the rear of my 2018 25ft Flying Cloud have stopped working.
All fuses have been checked and are ok.
Any suggestions before returning to dealer?

Are the wires connected at the back side of the fuse panel? (Are you getting 12 volts at the lights?)

I removed the light switch and found an inline fuse inside the wall. I replaced the blowed fuse and now the lights work.

Similar Issue - Rear Bedroom Overhead Lights on Dimmer not working.

I'm curious where you found the inline fuse. Our dimmer & on / off switch is mounted on the wardrobe (Serenity 30BRT).

Thanks.

remove the trim(pop it off) maybe finger nails or carefully with a tool...

3 or 4 screws underneath the trim. gently pull wires out...inline fuse holder there...blade automotive type...
10 amp. I think...

Same issue here. I also replaced the fuse however it popped. I'm going to begin removing LED fixtures and testing for a short.

After several blown fuses I found the round head screw next to light switch that holds the cabinet in place was rubbing against the light /dimmer switch causing a short. I removed the screw, counter sunk the hole, replaced the round head screw with a flat head. Now the metal screw cannot touch the switch and cause a short. I also replaced the switch.

Dropped all the lights. Did not find a short. Traced the power leds from the dimmer and find nothing unusual.


Hmmm

Too Tall, our issue still remains a mystery. Initially we suspected a worn wire (purple or white) maybe grounding out between panels. Or maybe a missing grommet. We bench tested the lights with the switch and all was fine. After replacing the dimmer switch several times, the thing started behaving and has worked steadily for a year. It is still an unsolved mystery.

The 3rd switch was the charm?

That is helpful. My issue does not appear to be poor ground or a short OR a bad fixture. For $40 I'm going to order a replacement dimmer so that I have one to test against and a potential fix.

For others reading, I believe this is the correct part:

Fingers crossed, it's solved. I installed the (above) listed replacement dimmer and downgraded the fuse to 6.5 amp and the lights are on for the last 3 hrs.
Bad dimmer!!!
