Scare light out again?

On our recent vacation (6 days camping), we found that our Scare light and back up light for the TT stopped working again. My fuse panel has lights that are supposed to light up if one of the fuses are blown. None were lit. I'm guessing I might need to start pulling them to check each one directly? The scare light was out before and fixed under warranty. I don't want to drag the TT back out to the dealer just for a little issue like this.

If it turns out to not be a fuse, what should I check next?

Joe

Is there a bulb involved? Also check the wiring.

It's a light that is scared. Mine is so scared it won't turn on....

I don't know really, but my guess is that it is used to scare off wildlife at night. It's pretty bright when it used to work.

For me, it's that light that comes on over my head when I realize I forgot to do something the DW commanded me to do.

What I dont have is a clue what a scare light is.

I got rope lights but shy a scare light as far as I know. Maybe it's a shy scare light.

Wait!
Is a scare light the big, round, blinding light on the driver side, so when somebody becomes your neighbor about midnight and takes 20 minutes to rumble his DP into the site and turns it on and hooks up and leaves it on all night and it is still on just before dawn when his rig growls out of camp?
It could burn out that way!

Yup, that's what it is, and about as useful as wiper blades for your side windows.

On the control panel in the TT, there is a switch marked "Scare". It controls a clear light on the passenger side of the TT. It is very bright. I always thought it was to scare wildlife away at night.
