overhead light failure

The center overhead LED light panel just up and quit. won't work on either side (one or both). I am guessing the switch is bad, as nothing else in the coach is not working. Short of pulling the light down and doing some tests, any guesses?

does your unit have a light switch for that fixture just inside the door frame?

I'd rotate the bulbs to another working fixture first and eliminate them as part of the problem. A surge could have fried them.

We find that a spray bottle of Windex works best for mosquitoes and no-see-ems.
Easier than making a direct hit and cleanup is easy.
Never go camping without it.

Bill and Earline recommended this vacuum to us. Not only does it do a great job of sucking up the debris between the screen door track and the door of the trailer, it is great for sucking up mosquitos, gnats, and other vermin that sneak in to the trailer.

I have the 12V version, not as much suction but does the job plus doesn't need to be recharged.

Thanks for the tip on the 12v version Pat. Much cheaper too. Arrives Monday.
