Unhappy Headlight Function

When I purchased my 2016 Ventana 4037 the headlights would only turn on when park brake was released or transmission put in gear. There was a headlight recall on certain Newmar models from 2015 to 2017 which I had done and now all lights turn on as soon as the ignition is on.
Can anybody tell me if your headlights come on as soon as your ignition key is turned on or if they turn on when your park brake is released?

My daylight running lights do not come on until I release the parking brake. My coach was not part of that recall.

Same here with my 2008 KSDP. Daytime Running Lights only come on when the parking brake is released. This is the same as my Chevy based Chinook MH.

Thank you for your responses and I believe that to be the way they should function. I'll have take it up with Newmar and the dealer who performed the fix.
