Okay, time for my 1 per day alloted stupid question

My side entrance exterior lights (2 of them) on my Thor 37MD are staying on and I can't seem to find the switch for them anywhere, I looked in the manual and nothing. I haven't googled it yet because I don't want to try to find the answer among 2 million other light or Thor posts. So I'm hoping that someone on here will take pity on me and not give too much spit for asking this, but if you do I will name my 4th child after you. Thanks ahead of time, Phil

Have you found a switch ; labeled " security or scare " ?
Or checked to see if the lights are wired to the power step override switch?
Some coaches have the lights on with the steps extended.

If this helps ; Don't name your kid, Skip, the teasing was awful in school ; till I outgrew everybody else .
But they teased me when they knew my real name too; that ended at the same time.

no the step lights go out after awhile. the only way I can get these to go out is the main power switch by the stairs and that kills the whole coach.
a kid could do worse than Skip, all the Skips I've known were stand up fellas.

No question is ever a stupid question.
Stupid would be tearing out the paneling to follow the wires. When you can easily surf the world wide web for the answer from your phone.

Many idiots put switches in upside down...

NOTE: on my coach (Also a Thor model) the switch is 3 position

UP is Porch light and stairwell
DOWN is the above PLUS "Work" light on the other side of the coach

Center off.
