12V lighting problems

I suddenly experienced power problems to my lights in the kitchen and living area slide outs. The problem is a short the blows the fuse on one side and no power or blown fuse on the other side. I replaced the blown fuse and several days later it blew again. So, I started by check my slide wiring on that side by isolating the feed and running a new pair on the floor. Seemed to work ok until I went on a short trip and it blew another fuse. I am ruling out wiring as the cause at this point.

Could this be related to;

1. Spurious problems with the fuse board, or
2. Faulty wall switches leaving an open circuit with occasional short circuit?

The switch are rocker type wall mount and I can't figure out how to pull them out without considerable prying force. Does anyone have any experience with a similar problem and how to you remove the switch without causing marring on the wall?

Thanks for any help provided.

The rockers should have a plastic cover that just pops off to expose the screws.

Check the inside of cabinet where the user controls are located see if there is a user removable panel. If so that should give you access to internal wiring of the rocker switches. Most wiring runs thru voids of spaces. Good luck

Lens, you probably already figured out this post is going on 3 years old. And, the OP never came back.....kind of makes him a spoilsport.
