Bathroom light fixture Coachmen Catalina

We recently purchased a 2002 Coachmen Catalina Lite 249QB in exceptionally good condition. Almost everything in it is in perfect working order and it is obvious the previous owner took extremely good care of it. I had a question about the light fixture in the shower. We are not sure how it works. There is a light switch on the wall that operates the overhead light in the bathroom, but the shower light does not come on when we turn that switch on, and we know there is a good bulb in it. Also, the exhaust fan in the bathroom works perfectly too. There is nothing in the owner's manual about the light fixtures, and I have Googled it every way I can think of. Could anybody be of assistance? I am attaching a picture of the fixture.

Thank you so much.

Can you test 12V wiring? That's the next step.

Smile Thanks for your reply!

The wall switch was my first thought, but those two panels with dots on the them made me think there was some way to turn the light on and off while in the shower. I guess with all the riding down bumpy roads, it could be a loose connection or a frayed or broken wire going to that fixture. Hubby is a wiring genius and I'm sure he could fix it. The question is . . . . . . . will he?? LOL

We have camped in a pop up for many years, but it was destroyed this winter when the barn it was stored in collapsed under the weight of snow (and we live in Georgia, go figure). When we went shopping for a replacement, we quickly saw that we could get a very good used travel trailer for less than a pop up. We go for pretty rustic camping . . . . no electric or water hookups with a glorified outhouse in the campground for a bathroom, so imagine my surprise when I found out we could have a full bathroom, furnace and a refrigerator that would run off a battery and propane. We have only been camping twice since we bought it in March, but I'm still pinching myself, hardly believing there will be no more 4 AM trips outside to the facilities, dodging bears all the way.

Thanks again!
