1997 Mountain Aire Switch Backlighting

I'd like to diagnose the mostly non-functional backlighting for the switches across the cental part of the dash; aux switches, driving lights, genset, etc.
One little 6"-or-so section lights up but that's it. I thought I just had a bunch of burned out bulbs, but this is backlighting I've never run across before.
It's like a thin film that is taped, or maybe has a self-adhesive on one side. There is a small transformer the wires feed to that is mounted a little further back under the dash; I'm guessing this is low current, high voltage lighting.

Does anyone know the name of this type of lighting, and/or know how to troubleshoot it?
