Docking lights

Ok 1st of many questions. Recently acquired a 2000 National Islander 40' DP. Have front and rear docking lights both sides. How in or where in the hell is the switch to turn on? Taking summer to renovate this beast as she needs some tlc. Any direction appreciated.

Sorry I can't provide the answer , but I'm sure a National owner will be along shortly.

Strange there is no dash switch, Newmar has the dash switch and then the docking lights come on with the back up lights.

Best to have an identical vehicle response, on my tradewinds it's the Aux switch next to fans switch and radio switch on right hand side of dash.

I didn't know which switch it was because all bulbs were burnt out to start, so I couldn't tell at first till I did some debugging. Didn't expect them ALL to be bad. If no switch activates them. And u Have switches u dont know what they do... this may be similar.

Docking light switch

On my 2001 Islander the docking light switch is the first switch to the left of the steering column.

Thanks, I was thinking that, going to trouble shoot from bulbs back to switch. Really appreciate it!
