Overhead bunk light?

Having a issue where my ceiling light above the drop down bunk in cab isnít working. No power at the switch.

I checked the wires in the leather loom along the wall and didnít see any bad connections.

Has anyone experienced this?

Only thing I have found were a red and a blue/red wire behind the radio stack that have female spade connectors but canít find any open terminals back there where they would connect.

Otherwise everything seems to be working fine.

You need to add your make, model and year of your rv. Otherwise good info will be hard to get.

Make absolutely sure the bunk is in the completely lowered position. There is a limit switch which wonít allow power to the light if the bed is only partially lowered. You may have to reposition the two front seats so the headrests donít prevent the bunk from being completely lowered. If you have already done this then you have a different issue. Jayco has designed it this way so the light never gets left on when the bed is being stowed. Good luck and let us know what you find.

Iíll have to give this another try, canít remember if I had it all the way down or not.

I did text the voltage at the switch both up and when lowered and wasnít getting anything.

Iíll double check the connections in the loom on side as well.

Was trying to determine where Jayco taps into the 12v system for that switch.
