Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

The antenna position switch on our coach is a simple mercury switch mounted on the pole. When up it completes a circuit to turn on the dash light. I suppose the wiring could be shorted at any point.

Noticed you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

As Joe alluded to, over 80% of all 12V issues are the result of a poor/missing ground. IMO, In your case a ground is poor, causing a backfeed to this light to make it glow dimly.
Now the location of the said poor/missing ground is the real treasure hunt.
