2017 Wildwood X-Lite LED Light Bar

Just bought this camper. The sales rep went over everything, to include, turning the outside light bar on. On our first camping trip & now I can't figure out how to turn the light bar on. When I use the remote, it flickers on then off. Is there a switch? Maybe a miscommunication? HELP! TIA!

We have one as well. The main light switch is on the control panel below the tank level LED lights. Ours came with a white remote and a skinny flat remote. The skinny flat one allows you to change the colors and whatnot.

On my 261bhxl, the awning light switch on is the light switch on the left, in picture. The sensor for the remote is the black tip on white wire. You have to point it directly at sensor to get it to work. Make sure you press the on button each time you make a change.

Glad you got it working. For what it's worth, I recall during our PDI being told if you turn them on with the inside switch, you can't turn them off with the remote and vice versa.

The wall switch is like a master power switch. It must be on before the remote will work.

We have a 368RLBHK with the same light bar and awning as in your pic, but we don't have the multicolor/function remote as in the last pic. Were we supposed to get this and the dealer just forgot to give it to us?

Most likely.
