2017 Classic 30 Bathroom Light Issues
The bathroom lights in our 2017 Classic 30 are acting up intermittently. This started about 2 years ago (while the trailer was still under warranty) with the lights dimming and flickering for no apparent reason. Took it to the dealer (Spokane Airstream) but they said they could not duplicate the issue. "Bring it back if it does it again." That's a 2+ hour round trip, and the next few times out the lights did not flicker.
Just returned from a short trip and found that now the lights only come on intermittently. When you press the "Bathroom Light" soft button on the wall panel it turns blue to indicate "ON" but the two lights do not come on. Repeatedly pressing the button has no affect. Quite by accident we found that if you left the button "ON" and showing blue, the lights would come on sometime in the next few minutes. We haven't timed the delay, but it seems to be about 3-5 minutes.
When they are on the lights still flicker.....sometimes. Also, they turn off okay either by pressing the dedicated soft button in the bath or by pressing any of the Master Off buttons. Of course now the trailer is out of warranty.
So, any ideas where to start looking? It seems to act like a loose connection somewhere. I expect it is not a loose wire in the lights themselves as both fail to turn on, unless they are daisy-chained together and the short is in the first fixture. Or maybe there is a loose terminal in the control system. Where is that located and does anyone have a schematic of the control system wiring and a routing diagram of where the wires are located?
Thanks for any ideas or suggestions on how to tackle this. Needless to say, the DW is not happy about having no light in the bathroom when she is getting ready in the morning!!
