Smile Map Lights 2001 Dutch Star

Well I finally traded up to a Diesel Pusher and what a difference. I am very pleased with my new to me very well cared for 2001 Newmar Dutch Star 3852. Now the process comes to figure everything out. One thing is the Map Lights over the driver and passenger. They are not working, I checked my friends 1999 Dutch Star and they are not working either. Is there a secret switch that I am not turning on? Any help would be appreciated.

On some rigs the map lights are turned on with the light switch like on some cars where you turn the instrument dimmer all the way up till it clicks in.

On my DS the map light over the driver is turned on by the headlight switch. Turn it all the way to brightest then one click beyond that. The passenger map light is a switch along side the passenger seat. In addition my lights have a switch on them also.

Welcome to iRV2 .

My map lights work this way , both the dash ( headlight ) switch and the switch on the light have to be on .
