Lose of 12 volts on bed slide out.

Hello everybody, We have a 2014 3150RL. On our trip from TX to FL we found that the 12 volts lights on the bed slide out stopped working. The 120 volt outlet still works fine. All fuses check to be good. All the wires are hidden quit well and I'm wondering where to start digging.

I'm thinking of pulling the floor in the under bed storage compartment.
Any help would be appreciated.

First steps if it were me. Pull the lights off the wall and check for 12V. Ensure the fuse hasn't blown. Pull the fuse and ohm it out to be sure.

Thanks. Fuse is good. I wired in a 12 volt phone charging station on each side of the bed a few months ago. They are dead as well. Has anyone been under the bed slid out? Does the floor of the under bed storage just lift out. I don't see any screws. I'll have to move a ton of stuff to get to it. Where does the 12 volt wire to the bed slide enter the coach on it's way to the fuse panel? Is it exposed in the basement?

A different model, but this is what our bed looks like with all the panels removed. The 12 volt wire enters through the ceiling of the front storage area where the batteries are located, along with the hydraulic lines. You might find the wires in that storage compartment and check them for power before you disassemble the bed.

Bob, you sure do get a lot of use out of the picture.

It has come in handy. Now I wish I had taken a few more detailed photos when I had the bed apart. We were at the national rally in 2014 and one of the rollers was not working. The 15 minutes with a tech got me a replacement roller, and it turned out the roller was ok, just the cleat it was attached to had broken. So after the repair I snapped the photo for future reference.
