3 dome lights not working in slide out, trouble shoot???

we have a 2016 Crossroads Rezerve 31bh. it's currently in storage and while i was up there last weekend i noticed that 3 of the dome lights are not working. the lights over the couch in the slide out, 1/2 of the dome lights over the dinette and the dome lights over the kitchen sink are not working. i checked the fuses, replaced the LED bulbs with ones that i know work.

i say that 1/2 half of the lights over the dinette work because one side of the dome works, the other half does not.

checked the light switches, fuses, everything that i can think of but still no answer. frustrating!

anyone have any ideas of what to try next? dealer says it will take forever to get it in there just to check it out.

i know it's gotta be something simple just don't know enough to trouble shoot it.

Check GFI outlets.
Have you recently driven in wet weather?
Man, this is a 2016? What's up with quality these days?

There is usually a GFI outlet that runs multiple lights and plugs not sure where yours is located. most have one in the bathroom

Not sure that GFI has anything to do with 12V lights.

The GFI is 120 V AC and the LED lights are 12V DC, so they are unrelated. If you have a double fixture with only 1/2 working, then either the bulb is making poor contact in the socket or the fixture has a defective connection to the switch located on it (since generally a single switch on the fixture controls both bulbs) or the ground side for that single bulb is defective (in either case, positive or ground, the fixture would need to be replaced). If other lights are affected, I would remove each fixture and check for loose connections on the backside. If you can guess the order in which the fixtures receive power, I would start with the last working fixture, a loose connection there will affect lights downstream. If all of the lights in the slide out are not working, then you might check the 12 V DC power and ground lines under the slide out.

Some of my dome lights are controlled with two switches, one on the light and a wall switch. Double check that both are switched on.

I too believe that the gfi's are the first place to check.
However, Usually the outlets in the slide outs are powered by a extension type sj cord.
They have long springs to keep tension on them when pulled in or traveling.
When extended, the springs still pull on the cord pretty hard and you could have one that's pulled on enough to break proper contact.

Outlets weren't the problem mentioned by the op, lights were.

As stated earlier , GFI's are only for 110v (electric) plugs .. All lights are 12v (battery).
My guess would be bad connections in the fixtures ,especially the double lamp that only has one side working. Take them down from the ceiling and check for loose connections. hopefully ,no moisture problems there.

I was half asleep when I read and posted this morning.your lights have nothing with gfi's It is more than likely a loose conection. It is possible a wire got pinched in the slide. Do you notice if the lights working are dim or bright. Could be battery issue
