rear flood lights & rear bed

.
so is this another misprint in a forest river brochure and dealers web sites that state the rear flood lights are back up activated ? seems i do have a switch to turn them on and off but do not work with back up lights .
Also is there a way to lower the rear bed further then it does ? can it be adjusted or set lower on the lifting mech. seems even I at 6'1' can not easily get into or out of it . next thing will be some kind of kitchen cart to have just a little counter space .everything else is working great . spending my 3rd nite in the unit and starting to fill like home .

The upper bunk has quite a few points it can stop at. There are metal plates inside the tracks with two set screws per plate. You raise or lower them in the tracks to adjust the height the upper bunk stops at.

Depends on where they are now. You can raise it or lower it in the existing threaded holes. You can also make you own new ones if you want to take it further up or down.

My rear floods have a switch in the garage, but they also do come on with the truck's reverse lights. Start with your 7-pin and work backwards, the connector might not be making good electrical contact on that pin.

removing the brass stop plates will allow you to lower the bed to any height you wish.

Our flood lights also work as reverse lights.

Mine also work in reverse, I'll bet your TV plug is not hooked up to the reverse lights

Yep, quite possible--truck ignition on, engine off, put gear shifter in reverse so the truck's R-lights come on (have DW keep foot on brake!) and test that slot/pin on your 7-pin to see if it's getting power. The issue might be with your truck plug, not the camper.
