ceiling light without power

Hello everyone. I have a single wide 16x 80 Mobile home. the bedroom at the end has no power to the ceiling fan/Light. we have checked and have no power at the wall switch. All wall plugs have power and we have checked all breakers. I know mobile homes are wired strange so does anyone know where i can start looking? I know both bathrooms are hooked into one GFI in master bedroom, If it pops you lose power in the other bathroom ( if i remember right ). Does anyone know if the bedroom could be wired to something else that has killed the power? Thanks for any and all ideas..CD

If you used a non contact tester the results are not meaningful.

How many wires at the switch box? Have you redid the connections at the light?

Did you ask your older brother if he bent the center tab of the lamp holder up a bit and tried a new bulb.

Okay so you need to find out if power comes in at the switch or the fan then measure power in with a multimeter. As asked before let's start with a description of all the wires except ground at the switch.
