Did all of the lamps stop working at the same time? If so, it is unlikely that the issue is the bulbs. It is more likely that wire connections to the back of the switch may have jarred loose due to vibrations while traveling. I have found that the wire connections (quick connect terminals) on the back of the switches are not very secure. It is easy enough to remove the switch panels and check the connections. The plastic panels will pop off and then you can remove the switch assembly to check the connections. Once you are in to the point that you can access the terminals, you can put a jumper lead across the switch contacts for those lights and see if the lamps will come on. If they do come on, then you have a bad switch. If not, then possibly you have a blown fuse. Are those lamps the only thing not working. The 12 VDC circuits are all automotive type fuses. If one of those fuses is blown, an LED indicator next to the fuse will be illuminated.

It is also possible that a connection to the fixtures in the ceiling has come loose or disconnected. That would require dropping the fixtures to check.

Hope this helps.
