Mystery light

On the front left side of my 2014 Super lite 26 RK there is a clear ext lamp. I think it is for hitching and unhitching in the dark. I can't find where it gets power. No switch seems to put 12V at the socket. Any ideas? There is another small lamp on the tongue jack, but it is powered all the time.

If it's like the one on my Flagstaff, there is a switch for it right underneath the light. It's on the bottom side.

Edit: But you may not be asking this.

I know there is a switch, but it doesn't provide power to the light. I should have mentioned that as the replies seem to think I am a dunce.

You might have a bad switch or bulb.

Thanks, but I am not getting 12V to the hot side of the switch. I measured it and no internal switch seems to provide power.

Hello,
Maybe a fuse is blown. This light will only work when the 12 battery bypass is in non bypass mode. Check you switch if equipped or fuses.
