X2 on the galley switch. My trailer has a fold over sink/stove cabinet and when it is in its upright position it pushes down a push-button switch to enable the ceiling lights. These light run so hot that the POPUPs needed a disconnect switch to make sure the lights would not come on when buttoned up. Might start a fire...

Sometimes this switch is not being totally pushed on for one reason or another. Mine has a special piece that aligns with the push button head. Perhaps yours is not aligned right or something else is keeping the fold-over cabinet from fully being flush against the push button switch. You can push the switch down with your finger and see if the ceiling lights will come on.

I suspect the safety push button switch is under this sink top cabinet.

Galley sink is in place. Can't find a switch, button or anything.

I have a 2010 model 1007, and there is a safety shutoff switch under the roof that contacts the sidewall when you lower the top. Mine is easily bent and deformed into the off position, and I could see that being a potential cause of no lights if yours is so equipped. On mine that switch is near the driver's side rear roof post.

go with the N.S.RUNNER post... Starcraft must have done it different than JAYCO...

Maybe someone with the same JAYCO popup will dime in soon. Just look around for something that happens when the trailer is setup in camping mode. The foldover cabinet - the tent bed pulled out - the entrance door installed - the roof being raised - something that is setup when you are ready for camping...

It certainly sound like this is what is keeping your ceiling lights from coming on. Just have to locate the darn switch haha...

Once you find it you will say "So thats what that is for haha" Maybe you still have the owners manual for it around.

Keep us posted

I finally fixed it! There was an emergency shutoff switch on the outside, right beside the driverside rear pole. One of the wires was loose there, and just had to be connected.

Thanks for the help
