Lights no controlled by switch

Ok, this forum has helped before, we have a 2016 Vibe 268RKS when we first got it the switch on the control panel would turn on the cabin lights inside, now 1 month later and the switch does nothing and I have to turn on each light with the switch that is on them. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Do you have a remote?
If you do, once the light is turned on by the remote you can't turn it off with the wall/panel switch.

If you don't have a remote, then the panel switch is probably defective not opening the contacts.

Did the switch turn on all the lights or perhaps just the first/entry light?

If just the first light, then you must leave the light on at the fixture, then use the panel switch to turn it off/on. This is usually just for the first light, so when you enter/exit the RV, you can use the switch at the panel in case it is dark, and you don't have to fumble around when you can't see, trying to turn on the lights.

If you turn off the light at the fixture, then the switch in the panel will have no effect.

This is the way my particular RV is wired, but yours may be different.

Thanks for the help once again. I hit the light button on the remote and now the switch works fine.

Thanks for coming back and letting us know what the fix was.

I'm glad it was as simple as pressing a button on a remote.

I think they could design those things a little better, but that'd require another 50 part and some actual wiring.
