2017 13' Scamp lighting problems

During our last camping trip the 3 lights over and to the sides of the cabinet over the sink as well as the outside light over the propane tank stopped working. Inside the overhead cabinet I found the wires for the 3 lights under and on each side of the cabinet but not the wire for the outside light over the propane tank. Note, there is voltage at the circuit breaker but not in he cabinet. Also I have no idea where the wire for the outside light runs BUT there appears to be a connector in the back of heater. I'm wondering if that connector is the problem but I can't get to it without pulling our the heater which I'm not willing to do. Suggestions???

Bob, whenever we had problems with the electricals in our Scamp, the solution was always to get rid of the “Scotchlock” wire connections, and make solder connections.

What is your 13?
Deluxe/Standard?
Front bath/Front bunk/Front dinette?
Are your lights LED?
Have checked the bulbs?
Have you checked the fuses on both sides?
Grounds?

The trailer is a standard 13 with no bath. The lights etc. are original. To make thing more interesting, the lights over the sink work only when the trailer is plugged into the car. They do not work when on battery or when the trailer is plugged into house current.

Go to the top of the page. You see a file tab that says more. Click on that tab and go to electrical in the document center. There is a scamp wiring diagram.

There is a fuse in the compartment in the front right hand side under the bunk.
There is also a fuse inside the battery box.
Your symptoms are consistent with one of these being blown.
