25 RKS Dinette light

Hello again all! I have an issue with my dinette light. While camping over Memorial Day weekend we had the light on when it suddenly went out. Checked fuses and bulbs. Even took a bulb from my buddy's trailer and tried, no luck. Upon returning home I tested with a multi-meter, good reading at the wires and the bulb sockets. Also tested the bulbs, seemed ok, but it's hard to get a good reading. So my confusion is this---where the heck is my malfunction? I was thinking that maybe the bulb connections had just wore down from traveling, and weren't making a proper connection. I was able to tap the bulb socket and get the light to come on.....once. I'm open for suggestions, ranging from new bulbs to new TT, LOL. Let's start with the least expensive first.

On mine the light on the ceiling above the dinette didn't work when we bought it (used) and we thought the bulb was out. After checking we found the bulb to be good. I found that the switch is going bad. It is the pushbutton type switch and you can just wiggle the end of the plunger a bit and get it to come on. Seems that the more we use it the less trouble we're having. Play with switch a bit.

My guess would be the switch...Easy to replace from lowes or HD stores
I have the 25RKS and it is a great floorplan (2006)
I have replace all bulbs with LEDs.....
