Inside lights not working!

We recently bought a 2001 Jayco Qwest 10X. The inside ceiling lights do not work. All other electrical devices DO work. We changed the bulbs and inspected the wire as much as we could. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks for your help. Can't wait to go camping!

Have you checked the fuses/breakers?

Have you located the fuse panel and checked the fuse? The 12V system fuses are automotive style plug-ins and the panel should labeled.

If I remember correctly there is a wire that runs up one of the roof posts that can be un-plugged. Make sure that it is plugged in or that the connection is tight. Also be sure the converter is turned on. That switch may be accesible under the dinette.

Cannot locate the fuse panel. Any ideas where to look?

The picture below is of a Quest 10x 2004....but may be close. Do you have a black box like the one under the bench? Look for a similar box / cover panel

All of the Fuses are working fine, Is there some sort of safety feature that would prevent the overhead lights from turning on if the popup is not fully raised?

Yes. Most pop-ups have a galley switch that is activated when the sink is flipped up. This is to insure the lights cannot be left on which could cause the bunks to catch fire when popped down. Where is it located? Don't know. You will just have to search for it. It will probably be a push button switch like your car door has to turn on the dome light.

The camper is raised almost all the way (it's in the garage, unable to raise it completely) but it's high enough to walk in etc. and the other lights inside and out, fridge, receptacles, and the roof mounted A/C all operate.

Is the galley/sink flipped up? I guess it is possible the safety switch could be dependent on the top being fully raised.
