A few lights now are out

My last trip in the trailer was two weeks ago, everything worked well. For some reason now my two bedroom reading lights and the bathroom overhead vent light are not working. All other lights and electrical outlets are fine.
Could these few things be on one fuse? I checked but did not see a burnt fuse, however I need to get a flashlight and really look more closely.
Any ideas?

sometimes the fuse contacts get corroded or the fuse has a tiny break. get a meter or test light out and test both sides of the fuses.

Since I did not disconnect battery when attempting to install the univolt. now have to question everything. To test the fuse, do you have to pull it out of the fuse box to test it? Thanks. Jack

questions are good :-) no, with glass fuses you just touch the metal ends. with plastic blade fuses, look for a tiny dot of exposed metal on the top ends and test it there. going to one of the non working lights and testing there will tell you if there is power in the line. if a fuse is blown, you have a 'short'. if the fuse is good and no power to the lights, you have an 'open'. don't forget to verify that the ground that feeds these items is good.
