Can't figure out light switch/wall sconce???

We have a 32' excella 1989. It came to us with a wall sconce above the switches to the left of door (see pic). Problem is it appears to have 12 volt constant power to the light fixture and we can't locate a switch to it anywhere. I'm guessing the light is not original but could be wrong. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks!Click image for larger version

Are you sure there was not a switch in the fixture itself? Looking at the wiring in picture that would be my first guess.

Well we wondered about that... Our manual says something about an interior light but our 3 switches serve other purposes. So your thought is it was a switch someone later used as a wall sconce? If that's the case I wonder what the switch was to (we don't have any lights that we can't turn on/off).

Agree with HowieE. I'm guessing that if you can't find a switch, it was in the fixture.

If needed, you can add a switch. You can either buy a simple on/off button switch that's used in cars at either an auto shop or Radio Shack, or buy a camper wall switch at a place like Camping World.

They're easy to hook up. I use my cheap Radio Shack welder and the welding education that I learned on YouTube.

Radio Shack welder? Is that part of the "Keep Austin Weird" package? 🎸
