Help with outside lights

On my TT there is one light by the hook up area and one light by the propane bottles. Both have a switch on the light is self. I can not get either on to turn on. I have replaced the bulbs with no luck. Is there a switch inside the TT somewhere that I am over looking? All other lights inside and out work. This is on a 2003 Coachmen Spirit of America. Thanks for your help.

Don't know about yours,but our MH has a switch inside the coach to turn on the basement lights.Also,you may want to check your 12volt fuses.

I checked all the fuses on under the jack knife couch where the breakers are and they are good. Could there be another fuse box? I only have two switches inside the TT that works lights one for inside one for outside lights. i turned both on and flip the switch on the light itself and still nothing. I guess I have a break in the wiring somewhere. All the wiring for these lights are behind the walls so it should be fun... I wouldn't think these lights would only work if the TT is hooked up to the TV, but I guess I can try that also. thanks for the help.

The outside lights will work on the battery or plugged in to the pole they have a switch on them because there is no switch inside aleast that why they put the switch on the light but anyhow remove the light off the wall and test the wire for 12v power if it there then the switch is dirty or bad.

Thanks for all the help. It turned out to be the switches needed the contacts cleaned. they both now work.
