Can't find the light switch???

Been thru everything and can not find the switch for the large light (see arrow) on the out side of the coach. The switch panel near the passenger seat has a switch labeled "Patio" and the only light it controls is the one near the entry door.

I don't know, maybe it's burned out. If no one chimes in on this I guess I'll get the ladder out and check it out.

Cheers,
Don

Those large lights are your security lights should be switch in your display area and if you have them on drivers side in a group of switch's next to couch, LR slide and possibly one on bedroom slide wall for over your wet bay area.

On my coach the switch for that light is on the underside of the upper kitchen cabinets.

For some unknown reason that is labelled as the "security light/passenger side". My switch is located next to the step switch, which is hidden inside the cabinet with the power monitor, Magnum and Oasis gauges.

our security light switch is next to the passenger seat. You might also want to check above the passenger seat.

We have a winner!

Thanks to everyone that chimed in on my question...this forum is so great. The keyword here is "Security".

Cheers,
Don

Hoping to prevent the yellowing of the lens I changed the lamp to the 1156 LED lamp. We'll see if that works in time.
