12v reading light 2020 GT 23FB

There is are three reading lights in the front bedroom. Two are switched and under the overhead bin. The third is a free-standing wall light above the bed nearest the curb side closet. That light wasn't working. Presuming the LED element was bad, the dealer sent me a new one. After I fished the connection blocks out of the wall and testing the voltage, it shows about 1.1v on the wires. I'd have expected the in-wall wiring to come from the switched reading lights, but it apparently comes in through the wall somewhere from the rear of the trailer.

Anyone have any idea where those 12v wires might originate? Any idea why the low voltage on them? They don't seem to be switched, at least not on any switch I can find.
havin' to fix my broken Airstreams since 1987...
