2 interior lights that I cannot turn off

Hi.

We have a 2018 2290S Sunseaker. There are two lights in the interior of the camper that are now on continuously. They are not on a switch, nor are they the push-on push-off variety of our ceiling lights. One is the floor light in the bathroom. The second is the floor light on the lower entrance step. Can anyone suggest how to turn these lights off.

You providing a photo of the lights would help. If you mean the small square motion sensor lights near the floor, on mine there were no switches. The one at the entrance step was triggered on by any motion in the cab, and became annoying. I put a switch next to mine. The one in the bathroom is acting so badly now (coming on dim, or flashing like a strobe) that I’m going to rip it out. Replacements of the exact same type have been tried but none of them work well.

They look sort of like this.

These are what’s in my 2018 Sunseeker 2530S at the two locations mentioned.
These are a very popular light available almost anywhere including Amazon.
They’re not motion lights, and are controlled by a factory switch on the wall of the bedroom. They’re OFF or they’re ON.

YOU CHOOSE……not some stupid circuitry that doesn’t work right.

Thanks for the suggestions. Here is what I did to solve this problem.

My RV has roof top solar panels that feed 2 banks if 3 batteries each. The batteries are controlled by a splitter switch that can run bank 1, bank 2, bank 1+2, and off. I have left it on Bank 1+2 all the time. This afternoon 1 cycled through 1, 2, 1+2 and off. When I went back to 1+2 both problematic lights went off, and my furnace clicked on. I have no idea why. Any suggestions?

On my Forester those two lights are controlled by my ďaisleĒ switch grouped with the outdoor light switches by the door.
