2012 Thor Ace 29.1 (Issues / Questions)

Hi, as a new owner of a 2012 Thor ACE 29.1 on my first trip I noticed the following and am hoping someone can help further explain/diagnose.

1. When the AC is on there is a trail of water leaking from the AC unit on the roof down the side wall of the unit. It appears to be external.

2. There is three switches near the entrance door. Besides the battery disconnect switches I've identified two. One is for the awning and the second is for the outside light. What is the third switch for?

3. My three main cabin lights won't turn on. Are the bulbs out or could there possibly be a main switch for them?

4. The cabin battery disconnect switch light is a solid green while the chassis battery light is a solid yellow. Is this normal or should the chassis battery light be green?

Thank you all in advance for you help as I am a new RVer.

The water off the roof during A/C operation is normal . Annoying but normal.
My 3rd switch by the door is the main switch for the overhead cabin lights 2, another switch on the kitchen wall is for 2 more, each light also turns off at the light.
Yours may be a power step over ride, so the steps stay out when your parked and opening and closing the door , turning the ignition on will over ride the switch and retract the step.
Not sure on the battery light color. Can you check your chassis battery with a voltmeter? Should be in the 12.3 to 12.5 volt range after the coach has been run. Anything under 12volt is an indictor of a weak battery, and maybe the cause of the light color.

Like said above...AirCon condensation on the roof is normal. Better than having it inside.

Options on a Thor for switches by the door (excluding those you have ID'd) are step override, bin lights, and master ceiling lights.

The ceiling light bulbs may be burned out because these lights are supplied by a 3rd party and arrive with VERY cheap bulbs. But there should be a master switch for the ceiling lights in the salon. I would check the outlet for juice before buying bulbs. A very cheap and useful tool for an RV is a circuit tester like: Circuit Tester

The chassis battery might be low as shown by the display. That should be checked.

Best luck

Thank you all for your help. For some reason the third switch after disconnecting from shore power decided to work and turned on the main cabin lights….
