Overhead bed – Energize lights without full deployment?
This question is also posted in the Fleetwood owners section. Please forgive me for posting this in the general Class A section. I am hoping someone here may have an answer who doesn't necessarily have a Fleetwood RV.
I have a 28 foot 2014 Fleetwood Storm, with the drop down bed over the driver/passenger dash area. New to me, so I need your help with the “safety” feature involving the lights above the overhead bed. The lights do not have 12v power until the overhead bed is fully deployed. Once the bed is fully down, the lights have power.
Does anyone know how to defeat this “safety feature” so that the lights can be energized without the bed full descended? The front of the coach is quite dark and these lights would help a lot if they could come on with the bed partially lowered. And the cat could hang out up there while we would be able to see our way around the front of the coach.
So, thanks for listening, but to the point – Anybody have experience successfully finding and defeating this “safety feature?” Is there an accessible switch or relay that can be bypassed to allow the lights to have power without full deployment of the bed? Please let me know if you can help me kill this annoyance.
Thanking you in advance,
