Lights

Can someone tell me if there is a secret switch that turns the back up lights on and off?
It seems that my backup lights are staying on as I go down the road.
Thanks,
Ken

There should be a integrated switch that turns on the backup lights when the transmission lever is moved to the reverse position. Not too unusual for this switch to stick in the on position after the transmission is shifted out of reverse. Not sure where to find the switch on your unit, most likely under the coach or under the dash would be my guess.

Yes there is normally a mechanical switch that makes contact when you place the unit in reverse either on the shift column or on the linkage for the transmission. But I have no idea where that switch is located in your unit.

Well it looks like it might be docking lights after all because I had a chance to play with them last night and noticed if I put it in reverse additional lighting came on so now I have to figure out where the heck they could hide a docking switch any suggestions?

I'm not at my unit right now but I think the switch is on the bottom of the dash at the steps.
