Not sure why they would have a switch and remote for it, likely the switch is killing the power for the ir receiver. Should be able to leave switch on all the time and just use remote.

It was explained to me by the dealer....if you turn it on with the remote, you have to turn it off with the remote. I have seen that posted on here as well. I have not figured out how this would be wired unless the ir receiver had the option of 2 sources of power which I have never seen on any other LED light controllers. It would make sense to me that you supply power to the light with the interior switch and control the display with the remote. The switch would override the remote's on/off switching capability......just thinking out loud. I wish someone on here that had this setup already would post here and explain exactly how theirs work. I will take it back to the dealer when it is convenient because it is under warranty.....just thought I could solve this on my own.

I stood on a step ladder and held the remote in front of the eye and the remote still wouldn't turn the lights on. The eye is clear and pointing outward.
Mine are after market that I installed.....My "eye" is way down on the very bottom of my awning bracket..about 4' up from ground....j

I don't think the location or height of the eye is an issue here, the remote works fine at adjusting the lights once I turn them on at the control panel inside. Just called the dealership and talked to one of their technicians. He could not tell me how it was supposed to operate until he had a look at it. This is a brand new trailer that I just picked up and he can't tell me anything?

I'm just going to go with what I have the way it works now.....thanks for all your help everyone!
