We just took ownership or our new 2017 Outback 314 UBH.  We had a few minor things detected in our PDI that are being addressed,  but one thing I missed until we got it home.  Under each staircase is a amber light,  I can't seem to find a switch to turn them off.  Any ideas where this mystery switch may be located?  

 

Thanks

Maybe in the bedroom...so you can use them as you go to bed and turn off after you get in the bedroom??

Thanks,  my wife posted to facebook and I posted here.  Will have another look in the bedroom in the morning to see if we can find this switch.

You mean outside stairs, right?  On my 250RS, it is connected to the porch light switch at the entry door.

Well we spent the weekend camping in the new trailer and it was great.  However the mystery of the stair lights remains.  We search the bedroom high and low and no sign of any switch.   The main door has 4 swtichs, one controls the porch light, one the Awning Led, The back side spot light and finally the main cabin lights.    I suspect it should be on the same switch as outside porch light and perhaps it was miss wired.  We have a call into keystone and we will see what they have to say.

I think your correct.  Must be wired wrong. The porch light switch on ours runs the stair light also. I just checked to be sure.

Check the bulbs.  When I switched mine over from incandescents to LEDs, I had one that I had to pull the bulb out of, spin it 180 degrees and put it back in.  It has worked fine ever since.  LEDs only work if the current runs in the right direction.

Maybe you've got the European model. When parked on the street at night the light needs to be lit to be legal.   :whistling:

 

Seriously, have you checked to see if there is a switch on the body of the light fixture itself? Like the one shown here:  https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B01KUNK6Y6

From my expierence the problem is most likely behind the porch light switch. To have the porch light and the step lights come on at the same time the switch leg/wire from each circuit would be tied together and connected to the load side of the switch. The 12v power for this circuit would be connected to the line side of the switch. If the technician accidentally tied the 12v power wire and step light wires together before connecting them to the switch then this is why the step lights are on all of the time. Good Luck.

Robert - I now know why you're the Master Member and I am just a lowly Legacy Member.

 

You're answer for "ris" has got to be where his problem lies. I'm kind of a visual guy so this photo will help those that didn't quite understand your comment. If I may?
