Question Bathroom light question, 2007

Ok, here goes. My first post.

We just bought a very clean 2007 19ft Safari SE. My question is the only way to get the light in the bathroom to work is to use the switch behind the sink. This causes the ceiling light to turn on. Seems like the bathroom/toilet area should have a separate light to not disturb others in the middle of the night?

I may have to rewrite the bath ligh from the bath fan.

Thanks in advance.

interesting. Could explain why mine doesn't work, will need to try that. For now I just put the LED pucks in there and in the shower and they seem to do just fine, but would be nice to have a bright light when taking a shower.

We have a 2005 19' Bambi, and the light fixtures over the toilet and the bathroom sink both have switches on them. We leave the "bathroom light switch" next to the water heater switch ON all of time, and use the switches on the ceiling light fixtures to turn them ON and OFF.

If your Bambi's light fixtures over the toilet and bathroom sink don't have switches, your model and year Airstream may not have the same fixtures as ours; or the previous owner may have replaced them.

Thank you Phoenix. Will take a look this evening.
Have you by chance replaced those bulbs with LED ? Would like to get a very bright one for the head and shower area to get some more light into the shower area.

Link to previous post on the LEDs that we bought to replace all 12v bulbs INSIDE our Bambi (no outside bulbs were replaced):

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f447...ml#post1543807

Note: Link for T10, 194, 168, 2825, W5W bulb has changed. New link is:

http://www.eversale.com/catalog2_1/p...ulb-2825-p-210

We ordered Eversale.com part numbers EV-BA15S-18 (20ea) and EV-LED-T10-18-WW (2ea). However, please note that EV-LED-T10-18-WW has been replaced by new part number EV-T10-13-NW.

==========

Notes:

1. I have no affiliation with EverSale.com, except as a satisfied customer.

2. We have had no LED bulb failures since installing them four years ago, in September 2013.

Same was true in my 2008. The fix is to re-wired the bathroom light to pull 12v off the little bathroom fan, so it could operate independently of the factory light switch .....

Looks like I will need to re-wire also if I want to split the light fixtures from the one switch.
The lights over the bathroom sink only have that one switch, ie next to the water heater.
The good news is that I can now turn the lights on in the bathroom, so I have light for showers.

The small led puck lights seem to do well for the middle of the night trips to the head, since I don't really want a blaring light at that time of night anyway.
