I "fixed" my light switches

One minor peeve I have had with my 2020 19CB Caravel has been the assignment of the light switches. It has two pairs of the touch dimmer switches; one by the door and the other by the thermostat and bathroom sink. My logic wants the switch nearest the door to turn on the awning light and the next one over to turn on the interior lights. Similarly, when I want to turn on the lights over the sink that should be the switch on that side of the pair with the other one turning on the bedroom lights. Not so, my trailer came from the factory with both switch pairs wired the opposite way that I think they should be. The result is me constantly wondering why the interior lights will not turn on while the awning light is blinking on and off. Likewise, when I try to turn on the lights above the sink I get the bedroom lights instead.

Well, I finally had enough, my silly brain could not easily be taught to work in reverse. Turns out it was super easy. Airstream used those Wago connectors so I only had to remove the switch from the skin, release the two "Out +" wires and swap them. Boom, done. The bathroom switch was easier since those connectors are accessible from inside the wardrobe.

Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference.
