At least it's not blowing the fuse for your interior lights...

This morning I decided to dig into the lighting wiring of my Solera 24W to find out why the outside light could not be turned off and why the closet light was operated by the switch for the outside light. The statement of the problem pretty much defines the solution. The problem was that, when wiring the slide-out, they spliced the wrong wires together in two places. Once I was able to locate the wires and splices, the fix was simple: put them where they belonged. I was able to access the wires and splices by removing the two drawers beneath the closet. The green/white wire is the switched one from the control panel. The blue/white one is not switched. Wires to the lights are black/white. Sure enough, the closet light was wired to the switched green/white wire instead of to the un-switched blue/white wire. There were four sets of black/white wires. Finding the right one required cutting off the bullet splice, stripping the wires, and touching them to the switched wire until the outside light came on, then resplicing them all back together accordingly. It wasn't a biggie, but it was one of those annoying little problems that shouldn't exist.
