DC lights not working in slides

I have a 2014 Hampton 400FL. My wife turned on the switch for the recessed light in the large slide and all the DC lights in both slides went out. None of the lighting In the main large slide and the bedroom slide will work. I have checked all the fuses, flipped all the breakers (I know those are for the AC wiring), checked the wires to the converter and the main panel. I checked the battery connections and made sure those nuts are tight. None of the lights will work. All the AC appliances in the slides work and all non-slide DC lights work. Also this spring the Maxxair fan stopped working, DC powered also I think. Any suggestions before I have the dealer come and check it out. We have it on our own land and can't take it to a dealer.

Have you checked the battery to make that is OK?
Have you checked the converter to see if that is OK and charging the battery?

Take the light fixtures down & check the connections, my last rv found they had loose wire nuts & had shorted together at the 1st light in the series. I'm guessing all the lights in re slide are wired together through the same switch.

Same thing happened to us. Check for power at the light then work your way back along the wire checking for power as you go. I found the wire disconnected, it looked like the wire might have been to tight and pulled apart. I added several inches of wire while putting it back together. Problem solved.

There is a supposedly watertight junction box under the slide ,screwed to the frame ,that feeds the slide. there is a flexible strap thet moves in and out with the slide. could be water or broken wire or loosley put on wire nut inside box.

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.
