new owner 3010ds

Hello everyone. I just bought a beautiful 3010ds and have a question.
On the rear control panel, inside the rv, there is a switch named "drivers side rear light" might say outside next to it too. I assume this is a light that should be on the outside near the hookup station. Problem is that I have the switch but no light outside. If no light i would expect a switch cover not an actual switch. Did they screw up and forget the light? Or do they always put the switch light or not?

I was under the impression that light was only available on the Forester, not the sunseeker. If so, sounds like the switch was put in by accident?

I saw that when looking at the options yesterday.
I bought it at a dealer that already had it loaded with options. i started thinking maybe this something extra they asked for.

Guess i will pull the panel to see if it is wired up. Question. Can i pull the switch out without pulling the panel off?

I am not sure about pulling the switch from the front...I just ordered my 3010DS last week so I don't have it yet. If it is wired up, maybe you can add the light without much hassle if you wanted to.

The drivers side light is an option I wish was available when I got mine. It would certainly come in handy when setting up at night. I have the blank in the control panel, no switch.

That is a good looking 3010... I almost bought a 2012 just like that but opted for the new 2013 in white... I love my 3010 space and countertops.

Yes the counter space with the window right there was a big must have, as was the double fridge, "U" dinette, outside TV and outside driver door light switch with no light installed outside LOL.

My family keeps laughing at me because i keeping watching the outside TV in the driveway just because i can. What can i say i am excited. We traded in a 1994 Damon Frontier Flyer 30' Class A so we could get in this bad boy.

Going out to pull the panel off right now.

Pulled it out. Not wired just the switch. I guess i should assume someone screwed up and put in the switch instead of a blank cover.

Thanks for all the feedback.
Time to go out and replace the outside tv door locks with 3 new keyed ones.
