Fuse blowing and No Clue Why

So we just set up in our 2016 Jayco 27BHS and all the lights work with the exception of the two above the sink and the awning light. Everything worked 2 weeks ago.

Today I found the GFI tripped which I reset. When I turn on the switch for the lights above the sink they dont come on, but no fuse blows. When I hit the awning light, bam the fuse instantly blows. I'm assuming there is an issue with the awning light which is somehow connected to the lights above the sink. Not sure where to start, I am under warranty but I have more trips coming up the next few weeks!

Hmm... Is the sink light switch a part of the light itself or is it mounted in the wall (or does it have both, like our bathroom lights, so all switches have to be on to make them work)? Sounds like there is deff something going on with the awning light. I wouldn't think that they are connected to each other.

Sounds like a short or bad ground at the awning light.

Sink light is in the panel with the other switches, but it has it's own switch.

Are your switches in the control panel on the upper kitchen cabinets by the door like our 2016 26BHS? Our has switches for the awning light, kitchen lights and main living area lights.

I would try pulling the cover off the control panel and see if something is touching in there that may have come in contact when driving - its a bit of a rat's nest in there and all spade connectors on the switches so entirely possible. Its a bit of a PIA to trouble-shoot the awning light because of the separate relay panel for the remote (behind a cover inside the upper cabinet).

When you say lights above the sink do you mean the two recessed into the wood on the ceiling or the under-cabinet light? And did they work before and this is a new thing?

Yes, I am talking about the recessed lights. Yes everything worked last time we parked it. Yes all the switches are in the control panel. Thanks for the suggestion, I will take a look at the panel. Just don't want to void any warranty if I screw something up. Is the panel hard to take off?

4 screws in the sides of the plastic front and 2 for the door catch and it comes off.

When you are in there check the crimp connectors on the back of the switches. Sometimes they aren't done right and the wire comes out. There's a chance that has happened and would explain why the lights don't work and then blows the fuse when the awning light is turned on.

Excellent thank you. Is it a big deal if I do it when power is on and fuse pulled?

No bid deal - its all 12VDC in there. Just be careful removing the cover - easy to do but there's a lot of wire in there and you wouldn't want to pull any connectors apart by being to aggressive.

Can I just pop the panel off the awning light by using a flat head screw driver underneath it? The only screws I see are on the awning and slide switches.
