Light above entry door

The light above the door on my 310 hasn't worked since I have owned it and I am wondering what switch or button is supposed to turn it off and on. The "porch" light just to the left and about the center of the door works fine.

Have you checked the bulb? On my 280 the switch for the porch lite and this light are by the entry door. I had to clean the contacts in mine (pry out the plastic lens)
and change thge bulb. Its a 12 v auto type.

mine seems to be connected to the "steps" switch. When on the steps stay out with the door closed and the overhead light comes on. When off the steps close, the overhead is off and the amber "courtesy" light is on under the steps.

Mine has a switch on the inside to the right as you enter into the MH. There are three switches there. The top one is for the interior living room lighting with medium or high output. The middle one is for the "porch" light, which I prefer to rename the searchlight or spotlight because it's so bright. The bottom one is for the step, so that at night one can see it if it's turned on. My step doesn't have the ability to be positioned...when the engine is running, its out when the door opens and in when the door is shut. When motor off, it automatically deploys out and stays until engine starts again and door is shut.
