Question Not sure what they are called....

I recently purchased a 2009 Silverback 32RL but the dealer I bought it from did not know how to turn the front hitch or cap lights on. (Not sure what these are called). Can someone help point me in the right direction?

Are you referring to a scare lite ?? There should be a toggle switch on the bottom of the light.

not sure what they are called. On my last 5th wheel, there was a light at the king pin that had a switch. This 5th wheel has two LED lights built into the front cap but I can not find a switch and neither could the dealer....LOL.

On the bulkhead under 5th hitch

My jack switch is in the side bin. There is a switch there that looks like a light switch and when I turn it on, nothing happens that I can tell.

Try checking to see if there's power at the switch.
if not you might have a blown fuse.
I am sure that that is the switch for your docking lights.
The switch could be bad too. Or the wiring up to the l e d lights.

I assume this is a fifth wheel? So the light under the overhang near the hitch is controlled by a switch on the light itself. Same for all of this type of lights on the outside. As for the two BIG round lights up high, they are called scare lights and there will be two switches inside on the control panel that turn them on/off.
