Slide out lights not working

I have a 2012 Jayco Eagle Superlight 30.5 bhlt and all 3 lights that are on the slideout have gone out. Not the bulb, but there is a poor connection somewhere and they are losing power. As the slide is going in or out, they will reconnect and come back on intermittently. Anyone else have this issue and can point me to the exact location of this poor connection before I go tearing this thing apart? lol

I would check the wiring under slide, sounds like the cord could have a break from bending over and over again. Like anything else keep bending something and it will break.

Mine, (not the same model) has a junction on the outside wall, near the floor with a removable cover. It has boxes where the incoming wires terminate and are distributed around the slide.

I would look inside there for a loose connection and also under the slide.

You are talking about 12vdc correct? Do the outlets do the same thing.

Found the issue under the spare tire. There was not enough slack in the line and the wires were rubbing tight against a piece of angle iron. It was shorting out and blowing fuses.
