How do you turn the "nightlights" on?

Or off? 1993 Kountry Aire. These are the the little lights at floor level in the hall and one more behind the driver's seat. When I bought this thing a couple of months ago one of them came on when plugged into shore power. I changed the 12 volt bulbs in the others and they came on too. Never could figure out how to turn them off though. At some point during figuring other stuff out and doing test drives they went out and never came back on again. Not a feature I really need but it's about the last thing for me to figure out on this coach and it's bugging me. No combination of doors open or shut, switches on or off seem to affect them. It would have been alot easier to figure out what turned them off back when they stayed on all the time, but now...

I bet it's something simple that's going to make me feel stupid.

I don't know how they did it in 1993, but in our coach there is a switch in the bedroom labeled "courtesy lights" that turns them on/off. Is it possible that you have a similar switch that has been inadvertently turned off?

Our 2004 MADP has a CRTS Light switch on the front dash console and another switch in the bedroom (Courtesy Lights) on a triple switch plate. Try different on/off combinations (there are only 4 combinations) between the two switches.

My 93 has a switch just inside the entrance door labelled floor lights.

Well that was easy. And I don't feel too stupid. I have a switch on the dash, next to "spotlight" switches to went to a no longer existing spotlight. I tried it much earlier but it didn't work. Since you guys pointed to it, I gave it a second look. Still nothing but it happens the radio is out so access to the back is way easy.
No power to the switch on either wire. I jumpered a hot wire to one wire and the lights came on! Jumpered to the other wire and they also came on. Puzzling. So I get to figure out what's up with the power there but at least I now have a heading.
Thanks A LOT guys, really!

The first thing I would do is to look for a blown fuse that is preventing power from going to the switch.
