Default 2007 Sedona interior light issue

Greetings,

I have a 2007 S29RKFW SEDONA 5th Wheel.

I recently had issues with the ceiling lights. One morning a string of 3 would not come on. There was no breaker tripped or fuse that was out. There may have been a bulb or two that needed replaced but this did not correct the problem.

Then yesterday, the same type of light above the kitchen sink went out. With this one there was both a burnt bulb and a tripped breaker. When I changed the bulb and recycled the breaker the light still did not work like the other string of 3.

Please advise and thank you in advance!

John

John,


Looks like the fixture may have gotten hot when the bulb burned brighter as its filament experienced an internal short just before it burned out entirely. Have you taken the fixture down from the ceiling to see if the wires leading to it are fried/show any signs of overheating? Does the switch on the light fixture feel like it has good detents, or is it feeling loose/worn/damaged?



Using a voltmeter, do you see 12 volts present at the fixture wiring when the fixture SHOULD be working? If so replace the fixture (highly recommend going to LED fixtures ...) If no voltage present, then you have to look further back into the wiring run supplying the lamp.


A package of 5 lamp fixtures to replace the ones you have only costs about $42 as seen here:

Chuck,


Thanks for the reply on this! It makes perfect sense that one of the lights on that circuit affected the rest of them... just like a bad outlet on a circuit.



I will take them apart one by one using the multi-meter etc.


We are in route to Florida from Montana. As soon as I get to it I'll post my results.


Thank you again!


John

Chuck,


I was finally able to do some troubleshooting on this.


The picture shows I tested for power to the switch and there was no power!


I'm certain the interior fuse box has no blown fuses and the breaker box has no tripped breakers.



Anything come to mind in terms of how I can test this further? I guess it's possible the breaker for this may have gone bad. If that was the case, the breaker never tripped the last time the lights went out.


Thank you!
