We are camping this weekend. My wife is freaking out thinking we will have an electrical fire. I'm thinking we are safe with that fuse pulled?

As long as the fuse is pulled out there is no power to that awning light circuit. No need to worry about an electrical fire.

Was away camping this weekend but checking back in on this post I see you are still struggling with your problem.

I eluded to in an earlier post but another place that could be your issue with the awning lights is the relay panel for your wireless remote. It is inside the upper left cabinet above the sink. Look for the wooden panel on the back wall and have a look there as well for any wiring issues. The lights are wired to work either from the switch or the relay.

None of this explains why the cabinet lights don't work and that could be any one of a number of things either related or not to the awning light issue.

I would start by checking the wiring at the relay board; then look at the wiring that comes out the wall to feed the awning light and make sure it hasn't been damaged, if you have a step light under your stairs check the wiring there too; then pull the jumper off from the awning light switch to cabinet lights and try the awning light on its own with the jumper pulled and see if it trips.

You could also try pulling the power for the awning lights and trying the cabinet lights on their own. Not sure what your confidence level is but the further you go the more complex the trouble shooting gets and harder it gets to help remotely. Not the end-of-the world to camp without exterior lights or cabinet lights until you can get warranty help from the dealer.

Everything appears OK in the relay box. Very easy to look at, only two screws holding the box in. I was surprised to see more fuses in here, but good to know. All fuses were not blown in n the relay. On to the outside to check the step light and then all the connections I can see fromnthe outside.

So I finally fixed...the funny thing is I don't know how I did it. I followed the line out the awning light and the main line runs between a metal piece and then to the awning. This wire was crumpled up and not fully inside the metal housing. In pulled it out and reinserted and bam both lights work. I inspected the wires and don't see any signs where it was crimped or broken?

I can only summarize that opening and closing the awning crimped the wire, and the pressure caused the sharp edge of the metal to pierce a small hole you cannot even see.

Be sure to wrap the area where the pinch was with electrical tape to keep it from happening again!
