Bounder.. no dinger?

I just noticed that my 2012 Bounder 35k does not seem to have a “dinger” telling me if I leave the headlights on. Is everyone’s like this?

My '94 Bounder did NOT have a dinger for that. Very annoying because of the thousands of times I'd get out the the RV and discover I'd forgotten to turn them off.

My '02 Journey is the same way. No dinger!

I am electronically capable of designing an autoshutoff circuit or a simple dinger but I never seem to get around to it.

Probably. My 2004 did not have any such nicety.

I'll raise that frustration level by one level..

On mine, if I actuate the windshield wipers, it will turn the headlights on. (headlight switch is off)
Only way to turn the headlights off is to turn them on and then off.
No indicator or dinger to tell you they are on when you shut down.

My 2013 FW Storm doesn't have a dinger either. I have gotten out to refuel or get something to eat and after locking the door and walking away discovered that I left the lights on,PIA cause then I have to go back and turn them off. However, in my own auto sometimes the dinger is an annoyance and drives one nuts. Guess we can't have it both ways!!

Headlight dinger

My 2015 Fleetwood Bounder 35K's headlights are on anytime the ignition switch is in the on position. No dinger if the light switch is left on.
