Default Center lights not working

The lights in the center of my camper including the oven hood fan do not work. The fuse is fine. What should I do? I also reset the breakers. Please help

Pop the false bottoms from the inside of the surrounding cabinets. That is where a lot of the 12v wires are run. Check for loose connections and splices (wire nuts). If that doesn’t work, drop the exhaust hood over the stove. A few screws holds it up. There are wires and connections underneath it also. Happy hunting.........

Default Just a guess.

Remove the fuses..either reposition or replace. Simplist thing to do.

And, you MAY have rodent damage to that circuit. I did to my left rear stop/turn light. Check the wires for continuity with a multi-meter.

I just wrote a reply and it said I could not post because I was not logged in and I was. Am sitting in San Luis Pass on the Gulf using their not so speedy wi-fi. Anyway, to cut it short. I had same problem with same circuit on my 1990. FAULTY GROUND. Take a piece of white wire and at any point on the circuit find the white ground wire, splice into it and ground it with a screw into one of the metal frames inside the wall. Do this inside the cabinets somewhere. More than one ground wire is fine....no problem. 12 volt system, so white wire is your ground wire.

I had the same problem on our 89 Funchaser when we bought it. I ran a separate wire from the battery into the camper to confirm if I was looking for a bad ground or hot lead. Found that it was the hot lead, and it turned out to be a broken (yellow) lead in the upper half of the shell. At least on our camper, the lead in question actually came from the rear of the camper and turned up to the range hood right behind the stove. The wire was broken where it made the turn "up". Good luck--these things are a pain to find.
