Kitchen lights

My wife was working in the kitchen of our 2002 38FB with the sink light and the countertop light both on. When she turned on the ceiling light by the stove and refrigerator all 3 lights went off and won't come back on. All fuses seem to be intact. It has been raining here all day. Does anyone have any ideas.

If all the breakers and fuses are good, a possible roof leak wreaking havoc on the electrical system?

Sometimes visual inspection of fuses is not enough. Put a test light or meter on them.

Are those lights not 12 volt? Besides the test light check I'd look at loose wire nut connections too.

The problem was a bad wire nut. Lights are working. Thanks new friends.

Gotta love those things in a moving house. I always use the crimp on type. But even those can come loose if they weren't seat properly.
