Bedroom lighting issue

Hello all, I'm new to owning a camper and need a lil help. I have a 2008 sunset trail 32ks and I'm having some issues with my front bedroom lights. The lights (3) in the bedroom and 1 in the underneath storage will not come on. The bulbs are all fine, the fuse is good, and the breaker is good. I'm sure that it's just a loose ground wire but I'm not sure where to start. Has anyone experienced this issue before? I don't wanna take the camper to a dealer and spend hundreds of dollars for a simple fix, plus we are staying in our camper full time due to my wife's traveling job. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless!

Is there a switch on the wall that could be bad?

We had the same symptoms with all the lights (3) in our slide. Fuse and bulbs were good and I also checked the voltage at each light, all over 12 volts. When any light was turned on, the voltage would drop to 0 volts. I don't remember why but at one point, I removed the positive wire from the fuse block for these lights and touched it to a known good positive terminal. Voila, the lights came on. I then re-attached it to a spare terminal on the fuse block, utilizing the original fuse. All has been ok since then. I guess it was a bad circuit on the converter.
Good luck with your search, I finally figured it out after 2 years of fiddling around and a month stay at the dealer.

Thanks, I'll try that and see if it works. The outlets in that room still work fine. So it has to be something simple.
