Orange step light won’t turn off
« on: September 02, 2020, 01:34:27 AM »
I have a 2018 Camplite 21BHS, There is a small orange light under the stairs that somehow came on and we can’t figure out how to turn it off… It is draining the battery, we checked in the owners manual and can’t find anything about it. Any suggestions?

Did you purchase it pre-owner?  I ask because I’ve not seen a light in that location in any Camplite from the factory. I wonder if someone added it?  I hope there is an off switch somewhere!

On my 2018 14DBS there is a light switch in the baggage compartment.  On mine it is on the right side.

Cool. Must be a feature added in ‘18. Under the steps would be a nice spot to have a light.

It is a nice spot for a light....
The mystery is why did they put the switch in the front pass through compartment?
Seems like inside near the door would make more sense.  Sort of like - oh I don't know-  just about every home's porch light ;D

It took us by surprise too!  It was forgotten in the 1,000's of things you tried to remember when we bought the trailer.  I bumped into it when I was getting something out of the storage compartment.
