    We were in our PUP last night and everything was working great. Go out tonight and the interior lights won't come on. AC works, outlets work. Checked fuse, checked and changed bulbs, checked breaker, checked switch, checked connectors going to ceiling, checked wiring underneath for damage, checked voltage with VOM and getting 0 volts from each overhead lamp but 120 from outlets. Any suggestions. Everything was working 24 hours ago! We have not moved anything.

    If you have a tilt down sink check to see if the switch is being pushed in. The switch prevents the lights from coming on if the unit is closed up. Bounce the sink up and down a little and see what happens.

    Thank you for the suggestion but ours does not appear to have a safety kill switch. We do not see any electrical wiring in the area or under the cabinets. We tried moving the galley around but still no lights.

    Any 12 volts working at all. If not see if there is a main battery fuse right off the battery.

    Will have to try that tomorrow. Would it only affect the lights and not the outlets? Thank you.

    The outlets are 120 VAC. No relation to the battery at all.

    Carefully examine the canvas areas at the lift poles. Very near one of them, probably the rear street side one, should be the wires going through the canvas to the roof for the lights. Check the plugs on each end.

    Your kill switch may be located under one of the bed pullouts. Make sure your beds are pulled all the way out and secured.
