I really need some help. I have a 2011 Tiffin Open Road 32'CA. I was replacing a roof clearance when the wires are to short to replace the light. I tried to pull more wire but it broke. Does anyone know where the wires run. I cannot get to them through the cabinets. There is a space between the windshield and the cabinets. I really need some help.
We are leaving soon to go back to Florida.

To get to the wires you will have to remove the cabinets and take down the paneling.

Take off another light they should all run off the same wire.

^ This. If you tap into one of the other clearance lights, can you fish the wire over to the one that's Mia?

Wait till you get home, nobody is going to stop you if you have a light out.

I replaced the clearance lights on my Damon Escaper with LED lights. The lights were all chained together like K Charles said. I pulled new wires do to the same problem that you mentioned. When I replaced mine, I soldered the wires and used heat shrink tubing so that it was a do it once job.
