I was replacing the halogen ceiling bulbs with LED

Customer Question
replacements when I inadvertently shorted...
I was replacing the halogen ceiling bulbs with LED replacements when I inadvertently shorted one of the halogen bulbs when removing it...this is on a 2000 American Heritage. There are 3 lighting circuits 2 work fine but the middle circuit won't light. I looked at the 12 volt fuse panel and can't find a blown fuse. Checked all ground fault recepticles...my wiring schematic shows the circuit being tied to the 12 volt panel under the front of the bed...I was wondering about the switchs them selves...are they fused...just don't know where to look next.

The only fuses should be in your load center or sometimes they use a resettable breaker. Push those in to reset. If none of those work, then you may have damaged something in the circuit or the switch. If you have or can come up with a 12 VDC test light we can do some testing to see where the problem is. You may need a length of wire to act as a test ground for the light. Easy to use and I can direct you. All follow ups are included in our on time fee. No time limit.
