1207 lights

Need help. The two overhead lights are not working on our camper. I visually checked the 4 light bulbs and I have checked the fuse by swapping out with another 15 amp fuse. Everything else in the camper seems to have power except the 2 overhead lights. Any ideas ?

My 2012 eagle t/t has a sw on wall by awning/slide/outside sw"s that control over head lites, plus each has a on/off on fixture.

Rather that visually checking the 4 lights it would be best to use a known good light for testing. It also is best to use a volt meter to make sure you have voltage present.

You may have to check the wiring from the box to the roof to see if there is a break in one of the lines.

I found the problem. There is a switch on the outside that trips when the roof is down that prevents the lights from being on when the roof is down. I messed with it and they work now.

the switch should be on the inside of the pop-up on the riser. If I recall, it was under canvas or material which you had to pull back. it was a simple lever switch.
