There are five different models of that year and model, so starting with the correct one to look at drawings makes for better answers. Also if you can specify where the lights are located, it may be helpful as they don't spell out which is flourescent on the drawings.

See attached for what I mean? Click picture for better view.

This is why it is best practice to start a new thread for your new question rather than add your question to an existing thread on a different subject.

I’m a moderator. I have attempted to isolate your question and move it to a new thread. I hope this helps.

How to add photos to a post

The photo should reside on your computer, tablet or phone. If you have a photo at Google or Dropbox or similar cloud location download it (Right click Save Photo As) to your computer, tablet or phone FIRST.

Here's how to post a photo inside an existing thread that you are replying to:

Click scroll down to bottom of a thread to the Quick Reply editor box.
  • At the bottom of the Quick Reply box, click "go advanced" and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded from your computer, tablet or phone's photo gallery. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

IF you are starting a new thread then you can skip the whole "Go Advanced" instruction because when starting a new thread you are already in the Advanced Editor. So, in this case you just scroll down to the "Manage Attachments" button in the Advanced Editor.

I am needing help with the lights in the ceiling 2 in the kitchen and 1in the lounge area. They are all fluorescent. I have a 2003 suncrusier... the switch by the control panel operates 2 of the lights in the kitchen and the switch by the entry door operates the one in the lounge area. They all went out at the same time we bought new bulbs and that did not help. Before this happened We tried to switch out the one in the lounge area with a new led light, however after we were ready to install it we realized the screws in the new light would not line up with the ceiling of the pre-existing ones so we did not install it, however we did cut the wires that were on the original light to connect to the new led light so we had to reconnect them to replace the original light. We did that by using a wire screw cap to connect the wires not the cripped wire connector it had originally had because we didn't have one like that. The light did work a few times after we replaced the old light so we are not sure if that is a problem. Maybe we need to replace the wire screw cap to a cripped wire connector...any thoughts on this...and yes we checked breakers all were okay..maybe breaker is bad..any help would be greatly appreciated...I hope I am doing this right... this should be a new thread...

We had a similar issue with our living room ceiling light. We had a breaker (over the microwave) pop out. Turned out to be a dead battery. Disconnect your batteries and check amps. May be that simple for you as well. Good luck

I'm gonna strongly guess the screw on connectors are the problem. Just read hook each one, one at a time. Those twist connectors are generally at fault.

Esiordia - Just a follow-up for clarity. Our Suncruiser is a 2000 32V, and our interiors are probably very nearly the same based on your desription since as I understand it the about the only thing that really changed was the switch to the 8.1L engine. I hope the interior options and decor improved.

Our breaker for the three flourescent interior lights did pop back out each time we pushed it in, but the lounge light did come on for a few seconds before popping the breaker out again. Oddly, when we turned on the lounge light the other flourescents tuned off until the lounge light popped the breaker again; they then came back on. It was confusing. Apparently just enough juice left for four lights but not five.

My batteries also read good at the control panel, but I think they will when connected to shore porwer. However, when I disconnected the batteries and checked them (under the steps) they read 2.4amps.

Dickb46 had a very good suggestion about rechecking your connectors. I had assumed you had already rechecked your connections. Last year I started using WAGO Lever-Nuts instead of twist-style connectors. They seem to make better connections. I am finding them easier to use after a little more experience. These old hands of mine are having a tougher time holding and twisting wires.

We all hope you can resolve your issue. Keep asking questions. Good luck.

Esiordia - I must correct the number of flourescent ceiling lights we have: 1 in the lounge area, 1 in the dinette area, 2 in the hallway, and 1 in the bedroom, a total of 5. Have you resolved your issue?
