Switch for Ceiling fan/light 2017 Columbus 383FB

The ceiling fan/light in the living room does not work by pulling the chains on the fan. I cannot find a manual wall switch or electronic switch in MYRV control system. Anybody who owns this particular trailer out there who can help??? Other models seem to have a wall switch but ours does not. If there is one I can't find it.

I have a wall switch, but I am not sure about one with my control

We don't have the same model but ours is in the opposite end of the 5th wheel from the fan, next to the control panel.

It looks like this...

Remember it is a 115v light, not 12v like the others, so it could be anywhere. I will ask our Columbus group over on FB and see if they know.

Ceiing Fan Switch

I also have a Palimino trailer and looked for same switch. It is a brown unmarked rocker switch probably located in your 12 volt DC and 115 v/AC panel. In my opinion, most switches are not clearly marked. The pic posted by a previous member shows the switch.

Smile Switch

The trailer is 90 miles away and will be there Monday. I have not seen a rocker switch like this yet. Could be in that area of the MYRV panel on the right when you come in the door but I just don't remember seeing it. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Great folks in this forum.

Typically two chains not light/fan fixture. One turns the light on or off. The other turns the fan to low, med, high and off. The master on off as shown in the picture above. Choice of fan or light or both.

I also had the same issue! It's the pic up by the controls as you come into the unit. A "home style" light switch and the only one with is not the other typical RV toggle type.

The light and fan chains will often bump up into that cup under the fan so you just need to fins them out.

How dumb am I?? I got to our trailer and low and behold there is a rocker switch that turns on the fan above the MYRV Control Panel. Turned it on and all is well with the light/fan. Thanks folks!
