    We have a 2000 Fleetwood/Coleman Seapine that we recently had 3 of the 4 lift cables replaced. When we got it out to camping the next time we discovered the overhead dome lights won't come on. We have tried pushing down the switch under the kitchen galley and checked the wires in the cable lift areas are all connected. What else can we look into on this? Bear in mind we are not the most handy people so any level of detail in explanation of repair possibility would be greatly appreciated! I have told my husband that y'all would be an awesome resource so thank you in advance!

    Are there any other 12 volt items that are working in the camper? Is the converted switched on? Is there a fuse that needs to be replaced?

    BTW: Welcome from Texas!

    The outlet that is under the dinette area table works. I don't know about a water pump because we haven't even hooked it up to water or attempted to use the water tank yet.

    You wil need to determin where the voltage stops. Since you had roof lift work done that is the most likely place to begin. Start at the connector that comes out of the top plate of the pup and makes it way up to the roof. If you find no voltage there it is behind you, meaning toward the source of the voltage. AKA converter. (Check fuses first before doing anything). The next likely culprit is the galley switch. This is a simple open closed loop switch that interrupts the + lead to the lights. Use an ohm Meter to properly test that. Continuity with the galley up is good. No continuity is bad.


    If you don't have the knowledge and equipment to do this, find a neighbor or someone that can help you with it. Short of that, a shop is the only resourse.


    Good luck!

    All your outlets are 110AC they don't run on 12VDC... There are no 12VDC outlets unless a previous owner installed them or rewired the camper.
