Awning led question

On my 29HFS the awning led and the front porch light only work when the inside coach lights are also on. Well the interior lights that operate at the same switch at least. Does any one else's operate this way. seems a bit silly to waist battery power running inside lights if we are outside whole boondocking.

On our 27 HFS the awning L.E.D's are on its own switch, no other lights or switches have to be turned on for them to work. Seems like something has been wired wrong.

On our Flagstaff 27RLWS the Porch and LED lights are on their own switch. No other lights has to be on. I agree with Spiker51

Campingchick, I have to think it is in the switch itself. I wonder how hard will be to find the proper switch?

My left switch goes to the lights over the garage door outside. The next one is for the overhead lights in the garage. The next is for the yellow outside light next to the door. The right most switch is for the overhead fan in the garage.

Scooter86, my DH went through the switches today, he thinks it's the style of switches they use. He's not interested into redoing all that, but if you find an easy fix we would love to hear it. But, we did have a few issues we are dealing with. We have no 12 volt power in the camper and thank god for these forums. After talking with the dealer tech and reading many good posts, we found the 30 amp resetable breaker is bad. Couldn't find any in town so ordered a few online. Also in his search to figure out the 12volt problem, he discovered that the cheap foil duct work behind the inverter was torn, so we were losing all our heat behind the inverter. Fixed it with foil duct tape. It's a good thing to take a look "behind the mechanics" to look for problems. We are still very happy with the camper and can't wait to try it out.
