Where is it? We have finally had an opportunity to start using the coach regularly, and I had apparently never had a need to turn on the lights over the dash (under TV equip). I've looked high and low and read everything and even checked the wiring diagrams. It's an '05 36MDDS.

Thanks, Rick Coleman

Rick, On mine those work off the switch that dims and brightens the dash lights. You turn it till it clicks and that should make those work. Jim

2003 40'MD--I vote for the switch next to/below/above the fan switch inside the slidedraw for the jack leveling control panel.....or are they by the radio---now I forget--but find the fan switch and the lights are next to it--or do you even have front window fans on the 2005?????

The lights on my 05 are turned on by the dimmer switch. Just rotate it up until it clicks.

Mine is a rocker switch on the dash next to the ignition switch.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will try each until the lights glow. Next chance is in about 2 weeks. By the way- my '05 does have fans.
