Where's the driver's map light switch?

Time for another dumb Newmar Kountry Star question. Where's the switch for the little 12v spotlight above the driver -- the driver's map light?

There's a switch on the passenger's arm rest for the passenger side. But I can't find a similar switch on the driver's side.

I tried the light's built-in push-push switch on the fixture, but that doesn't work. I tested the bulb and it works.

So either I've got some bad wiring, a bad fixture, or there's a secret switch somewhere.

Turn the light switch like you did on old cars to dim the dash lights. You may have to push the switch on the light itself too since they leave it wired onto the circuit.

Oh you're so clever! That was exactly it -- twist the headlight switch as if for the dome light. I should have thought of that. But I didn't.
