Vanity light Installation

Hi I need to ask for help if anyone can assist me I'd appreciate it. I'm installing a new 12 V RV vanity 2 light bar it has 3 wires coming out the back 2 positive and one negative. My old vanity light has 2 wires connected to 2 coming out of the wall a positive and a negative wire. Negative wire is connected to negative on old light and grounded to the mounting plate as well. It is a 3 light bar fixture which the 3 positive wires are connected together and pigtailed to the positive coming out of wall. The light bar turns on from a switch on wall none on fixture.

Question how can I connect the wires on new light bar it has a night light feature built into the the fixture above each globe as well.
I'm trying to find out if I can connect the 2 positive wires on new fixture to each other and put a pigtail to connect to positive coming out of wall and then ground to ground like the old fixture or ??? Any help would be appreciated.

I don't see why you couldn't wire the 2 positives together, but then the night light would come on with the main light and go off with the main light. Otherwise, is there a switch on the light itself to turn on and off?

Hi HarryStone. Thank ya for reply. There is no switch on light only my wall switch. I was wondering about it not allowing the night light function to work if I wired them together. Any suggestions would be helpful :-)
