Lights over the driver and passenger seats

Ok Dutch Star experts, on our 2002 DSDP I have yet to figure out how to turn on the lights one each above the driver and passenger seats. I have tried the switch on the back and checked the bulbs, they are good. Fuse maybe? Are they 12 volt or 110 volt?
Thanks in advance!

12v, and wired to the headlamp switch , crank the headlamp dimmer around till it clicks; headlights not on; then re-check the lamp switches.
Also on there own chassis fuse " dome lights".
One of the things I intend to change on my coach. DW doesn't like the lamps , and I don't like the way they operate.

Are you talking about the map lights? On mine, the driver side turns on from the headlight switch like turning on the dome light in your car.
On the passenger side, I think the switch is on the light itself.
They are 12 volt.

The other replies are correct. Twist the headlight knob counter-clockwise until it clicks (it doesn't matter if your headlights are on or off). If the map lights are still not on, twist the black knobs on the back of the lights clockwise until they click. If they're still not on, change the bulbs. If that doesn't work, PM me because I just got done taking my headlight controller out and I can tell you the right way (and the wrong way ) to do it.
