2008 Ford F53 dome/interior light

Does anyone know where the dome/interior light connector is located on a 2008 Ford F53 chassis?

Also, does anyone have a wiring schematic of the dome/interior light circuit?

The fuse would be on the Battery Control Center (BCC) supplied by the motor home manufacturer. Someone with the same manufacturer MH would know.

When you talk about the dome/interior light, do you mean the one directly above the dash? It's part of the headlight switch assy.
Here's the diag for the 2006; the 08 should be similar.

Thank you for the diagram.

When I'm talking about the dome/interior light, I'm referring to the "map" light (usually above the driver) which is controlled by the instrument cluster's dimmer control (the switch on the right below) when it is turned all the way up (past the detent).

I know the dome/interior light switch controls a relay in the instrument cluster and I think I have identified the wires but I quickly lose them in the spahgetti behind the dash. So, I figure that when a F53 stripped chassis arrives at any motorhome manufacturer, there must be a pigtail or a relay or a module that enables the motorhome manufacturer to connect and utilize that circuit. I also surmise that it is likely to be located somewhere near the stearing column. I am looking for that connection point where a motorhome manufacturer connects to the Ford dome/interior light circuit.

I had the gauge cluster dash cover off mine a month ago while installing a new head unit. My RV does not have a dome light, but I found an unused wire located above the steering column support mount that was marked Dome Light.

Currently, my dash is only partly removed and I can see some labeled wires in the location that you provided. However, I will need to completely remove the dash in order to read each label and I will do that once some warmer weather arrives. Thank you for the insight!
