Looks more like a marker light, plug your umbilical cord into the tow vehicle and turn on the head lights I'm betting it comes on. Other than that I couldn't tell you, but you should have 1 on each corner going around the unit.Do it when it'ls starting to get dark these lights aren't very bright in daylight.

It looks to me like a clear lens and on the front it should be amber if it is a clearance light.

Could be clear with an amber bulb, It is in a funny spot for a scare light they are usually in the middle of the unit. Also if not a marker there should be one in that area and there isn't.

Is your light switch in the front bedroom by the door?

Does it come on with something else like the porch light or is there a switch right on the housing itself? Is there another outside light with it's own control such as at the front by your jack that maybe controls this one?

No Beluga.. to all... It is the only light like this on TT. We are baffled, contacted the dealer where we bought this TT and no help there either...I am just wondering if is a light wired on the same switch in bedroom for the"porch" light and it is a blown bulb...

I just pulled up some pictures of other 25Vs and they have that light also. Maybe your until was built on a Friday and they forgot the switch?

Kind of small for a booger light. But it might be on this model. If it is, I'm like everybody else, the switch should be on the panel by the door. If it's a clearance light, it needs to be plugged in to the TV. Or put a fuse in the cord to make the lights come on.

Also, I would recommend that the OP gets a gutter spout extender so the water will not pour directly on the lens. That much water is not good for a light.

I think it's been established it's not a clearance light with a clear lens and a clear bulb by the OP.

Here is a link to the gutter extensions from Walmart.


Camco Mfg. Inc./RV 42123 RV Gutter Extensions-4 PK GUTTER EXTENSIONS - Walmart.com

When you change them out make sure you put some butyl tape behind them before you put the screw in. That will make it so they do not leak through the screw hole.

I used the cheap extensions on my last TT, wooden clothes pins! Worked like a charm.

And I am serious.

I think it may be a motion-sensor light.
