Arctic package

We have a new Sunseeker with the Arctic package. Trying to use it tonight as it is supposed to get down to 28. Flipped the switch to on but the light doesn't light. I know the pads have a thermostat in series but shouldn't the light be on? I have searched the Internet and some say yes and others say it will only light when the pads are operating. Anyone know for sure

Arctic package

Most of these have a temperature sensor where it comes on at a set temp. If you are running heat then it may not be cold enough down there.

Here is a old document from FR about Artic Pak

I do not believe the light come on until the temp drops below the low point.
I guess I will have to test next time I'm in my rig.

The light will be ON when you turn on the Switch! This indicates you have 12V power to your Heaters! The Thermo will auto take over from there! Make sure you have Fluid in all your Tanks Before turning on the Heaters! Youroo!!

Yes the light should come on maybe you have a fuse blown. The doc attached by Iggy tells it all.

I don't have a Sunseeker... but my light is on when the switch is on - regardless of the temperature.

When my light went out we were in for some other warranty work and we had them check to see why the light was out. Turned out to be a loose wire by the switch.

Light should come on as everyone has pointed out, those rocker switches bulbs will burn out also. I know it happened to me, I now carry an extra one. Got a multi meter check the back of the switch for power.
