Rear halogen lights

Need a little help trying to find out a little info on the halogen lights on the back of the coach. What turns them on and off? Are they used when backing? Or docking? What are they called? And where is the fuse? I can't find any info on them. I'm sure this is something easy to remedy but I have tried looking every where for the answer.

On my Winnie, they're called "docking lamps". They're controlled by a switch on the dash. I really haven't found them to be that helpful. I don't think they operate when the rig is in gear.

TV,

On our 2000 ( I don't recall what year your coach is) these two lights in the rear come on when I shift into reverse. my dock lights are controlled by a switch on the dash. They do a very good job of blinding Patty, and helping me see obstacles in the back up camera. Sorry, I don't know where the fuse is.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

I have no switch on the dash for dock lights. It would make sense to have one. So I guess that these two sealed beam halogens are to come on when in reverse?Am I correct?

2003 IIRC did not have docking lights. These are on the side of our MH just ahead of the rear wheels, to aid in navigating a strange campground at 9:30 (dark).
The lights in the rear cap should turn on when you shift to reverse.

2003: No docking lights. Two backup lights at bottom corners (and in tail light lenses), come on when in Reverse. Two scare lights, switches are at entry door for right, near tank monitor for left (marked Security).
