Bad switch perhaps?

Failed in the on position?

If you can, take the panel off and unplug the wires from the switch. If the light goes off, replace the switch....

jtstromsburg you may be onto something...........i have the LCI digital fob for slide and jack controls as well on our '11 ...........

I had the same thing happen with our new 5th wheel .. The "Remote" was needed to turn the light off ..the inside rocker switch would not turn it off..

I believe the fib will retain its memory until its battery dies. This is just an assumption, but If your panel is similar to mine, remove the wood panel inside the cabinet that is behind the control panel. The receiver half of the fob/remote system its behind there and can probably be manually shut off there. At least it could give more understanding of the remote system.

I had an Award TT where the exterior lights would turn on when it warmed up and turn off when it cooled off. I found a shorted running lamp wire to a batt wire in the ceiling. it was shorted across the hot wire for the interior lights. I ended up running a new wire up to that point to bypass the shorted wire.
