No, that switch is intermittent, but when it works, it only controls the small light on the underside of the body, right where the switch is.

Trying now to remember if I've been on that side of the trailer when the TV is hooked up with the lights on. I wonder if it's hooked up to the left rear side marker...

Then I have no idea! Maybe unscrew the light housing and see if it's even wired?

I unscrewed the fixture and found that it is wired. The leads from the fixture are connected with blue crimp butt connectors to wires which go off toward what looks to be the back of the trailer.

Didn't realize this would be such a poser

Ok, maybe turn on the light in the rear luggage compartment? Did you buy from a dealer? Maybe he could contact the PO? Curious minds want to know.

There's a light in the rear luggage compartment? Where's the switch?

It is a step light...we have one like it near our door step... It was most likely added to you rig... I'm wondering if it is tied into the light that is inside the rear exterior storage compartment...or perhaps there's a switch for it there. Or maybe they took out the phone jack next to the cable inlet (since phone jacks are kinda obsolete these days)...and put a switch there? It's purpose is probably to give assist lighting when making hookups in the dark. Not a bad idea, really! Wish we had one!

The switch is a push-button switch on the bottom part of the light..it's just like the lights in other places on the inside...closet, etc... The light is to the curbside of the compartment, just inside the opening... (Be sure to turn it off if you use it...ask me know I know)...

To paraphrase jambie, "Lights in closet(s)?...Huh?"

Obviously not a vintage thing. None in either of mine.

Back to the original topic. That is an interesting place for a light. It's hard to imagine that it would be that useful for setting up in the dark, given its location. Maybe a PO just liked sitting on that side.

This is cracking me up! It brings back memories from LY when I brought home our 06 Bambi CCD. It's fun to figure it all out.

Well, it's not connected to the rear compartment light, but at least I know about THAT light now...Thanks!

Cheers,
Tom

Yup...go figure, huh? I always forget about the light in the closet, but they do come in handy!

I'll have to research that. I tried to get hold of the PO before the sale, but since the dealer was selling on consignment, they weren't too eager to have me contact the owner. They told me that they had been burned on side deals before. Maybe they'll be more forthcoming now...
