Awning lights switched backwards on One Control

Hello, I just purchased a barely used 2019 Forester 3271S with One Control. My awning lights are switched backwards. clicking "on" on the touch panel turns them off and vice versa. This was only a minor annoyance until I discovered that turning the battery disconnect to "off" would result in the awning lights coming on. I expect I just need to reverse two wires on a switch somewhere, any ideas where to start? Back of the One Control panel, perhaps?

I canít tell what the one control is saying most of the time. Iíve started to just push the button and look, yep thats the right way.

If you have the Solera Smart Awning (you should on that year/model) there is a switch on the arm to control the awning lights. If the lights are turned on from there the One Control will still show off. Pressing the One Control will turn the lights off but will then show them as on. Sync the display using the switch on the arm.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Outstanding emm-dee, I'll try that tonight! I would have stumbled across that eventually, thanks for saving me time and frustration!
