How do I turn off this light?

Does anyone know how I can turn off this LED light in my wet bay compartment?



There is no switch in the compartment and the wires behind the light are bunched together with other wires making it impossible to trace.




There is no light switch on the MH dash or other inside location that I can find. None of the other compartments have lights at all.




It will go out once I put on the battery disconnect switch. Is it possible it is designed to stay on constantly? A bit frustrating.

My MH had a switch on the dash that worked the light in the service bay and driver side outside wall. The switch in the middle of photo.

I'm pretty sure that the light switch is integrated into the door. Just close the door. Give picture of the door and frame

It should be a spring loaded switch on the door frame that works the same as a vehicle door switch.

Put your cell phone on video and see if the light goes off when the door is closed. Just a thought.

I doubt this is it but, might the switch be operated by pressing and releasing the light fixture itself?

Think of it as a refrigerator does that light go out?

I would guess it is a tap light or a switch in the door to automatically turn it off.

Thanks

Thank you all for the thoughtful suggestions. I won't get to the storage yard for at least a week.


The cell phone video check make perfect sense and I'll start with that. I'll post what I find out.


In the meantime if anyone else has other suggestions I'll love to hear them.
