Short in '73 Overlander

There are three overhead lights in my '73 Overlander (27'). The center light, in the kitchen is not working. There is a blown fuse at the fuse panel, however, any replacements just blow instantly. There are four wire controlling the 12V lights and accessories. Of these four, the pink wire is popping the fuses. Any electical diagrams out there or can someone tell me what all runs off of this pink wire so I can begin a search for the short. Thanks

Sorry it doesn't matter. The first on the circuit is roadside bed shelf light or a vanity light depending on twin or double bed layout. Next is the roadside 12V outlet in the bedroom. Then the light in the oven. Next is the overhead ceiling light in the kitchen. Last in that circuit is the power to the furnace.

It's a rear bath layout with double beds (one on each side of walk through). The shelf lights above each bed is working now, with the fuse pulled on the kitchen light circuit. They must run off of one of the other three. Also, this layout does not have a 12V power source in the bedroom. The furnace is a good lead though. Had problems with the water tank falling out...maybe snatched a wire loose or something since it's in the same area.

Check the light switches them selves. I had one short out internally and it kept blowing the fuse also.
