Good evening! I have a strange problem and not sure how to ask for help on it.

We have a light ghost in our '86 Airstream Sovereign. LOL! Not really, but one would think. The Sovereign has, of course, been sitting out in the hot sun & that sun has been generating the solar panels, hopefully, charging the battery/ies.

Anyway, the lights inside, at the back of the airstream seem to work all the time, but the ones in the front (inside), the proch light & the little round light outside the door (not sure of right name for it) only work part of the time. We can't really figure out what is going on with them. We even had the power plugged in to our house & those lights still don't want to work. Electrical problem somewhere or does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on the matter?

Any advise is greatly appreciated
Thank you

I have an 82 amd had similar issues. I found corrosion on the electric and light bulb contacts. Once the corrosuon was removed the lights worked fine.
Hopefully it is something simple!
