Bathroom motion sensor light

The motion sensor light in the bathroom is also is controlling the overhead light. That's fine during the day, but showing at night becomes a blind affair after a couple of minutes. Is it wired wrong or is there some way I can bypass that function? The overhead light will not come on independently of the motion light.

Can you tell us which RV you have?
Also can you post a picture of the lights?

Does any part of the motion light press in?
Is there a local switch on the ceiling light?

Forest River Cherokee Limited WK274. The motion light does not have a way to deactivate it (no button or switch). The overhead light is an LED with a button centered in the dome that will allow you to turn it off independently of the motion light, but not on independent of the motion light. The motion light controls the duration of the lighting in the bathroom whether alone or in concert with the dome light.

I'm not at the RV so no pics handy.

We've seen a few of these motion light issue threads recently.
I guess they decided that people wouldn't want to control the lights aside from the motion detector. I'd probably try to bypass or parallel a switch to the motion detector light.

Hi

This is the Amazon Canadian site but there has to be an equivalent part on the US site.

What they probably decided was the fixture without a switch was $0.05 cheaper than the one with a switch.
