dead 12 volt lights-help

Have 2003 Dutchman classic Toy Hauler. Was putting LED lights in 12-volt lighting. Put LEDs in light over the sink and they worked. Went to put them in ceiling light over eating table and nothing. Checked all lights and found the kitchen lights were not working now, as were the ceiling lights and lights under cabinets in the garage. All others work in the bedroom, overhead main ceiling, and bathroom..

Checked fuses in the panel under the oven. None blown.

At a loss and need some suggestions before I have to dig into the system or take to dealer.

Thanks,
Bill

Did you physically pull the fuse to check it? If not , maybe it's not seated properly.

Did you check all of your GFCI's?

Pulled all the fuses and replaced with new ones. I can only find one GFI and that one is alright. Controls some different items.

Thanks,
Bill

Got it fixed. When I replaced each fuse the light over the sink worked. When I turned on the ceiling lights the fuse blew out.

Will have to pull them and check the wiring. Odd that both are causing the fuse to blow but stranger things have happened.

Thanks for the help.

Bill

LED's are positive and negative DC Voltage sensitive. Try unplugging them and turning them over then plugging in.
