Basement lights not turning off : DS 2020 : Fixed

On the What are you doing to you’re motorhome while being self isolated? thread I said I wanted to fix the basement lights never turning off.

The process to fix is easy:
  • Open each bay door, and disconnect the wire to the switch. Note: Switches are present on some bays which don't have lighting controlled by the switch.
  • Once you disconnect the last switch, the lights will be off
  • Working bay-by-bay : Connect the wire to the switch and lights will go on
  • Close the bay door. Lights should go off. If not, adjust (bend) the switch bracket and retest.
  • Repeat until all bays completed

After adjusting three switches the basement lights now go off

Here's a photo on the wire disconnected from the switch.
