LED v shaped light strip on front of 2021 2104S?

I have a V shaped LED light strip right below the front window on my brand new 2021 2104S minilite. I can't figure out how it turns on. Doesn't turn on with any vehicle lights (everything else works) and can't find any switch inside or outside that controls this light strip. I think earlier versions of this trailer had a small light on the front left side in addition to the jack light. I have the jack lite but nothing else on the front. My awning LED light strip works great

Is that something new for 2021? Shouldn't it light up?

Have you looked really carefully inside the front cargo area for a switch inside there?

Look on the ceiling if not obvious on the sidewalls.

Take a look on the A-frame behind the battery box, just below the rock guard. I often see a black switch on the black frame in this location for controlling the "docking lights".

Ken and Terry,
Thanks. I completely missed a switch on the outside of the trailer labeled "Docking lights" Lights that sucker up really well. Thanks for having me look again.

I am looking forward to learning a lot from everyone. After retirement, we are getting into camping again and will see some more of this great country. Just took delivery on the camper yesterday. Camping in it in our driveway for a couple of nights to make sure things work before we head out for a campground about 80 miles away. Will be taking it across a CAT scale on Wednesday morning to see if my initial calculations were correct. The Buick Raineer seems to pull it well on the 20 mile drive home.

Thanks again
Keith

Great news that you found the switch.
Bad news.....did you say itís on the outside of your unit.....where anyone could turn it on, and drain your battery?

Our 2018 Rockwood 2608SB has the same switch on outside LH side at front. Also another switch and light outside on rear wall LH corner over fresh water tank filler inlet. So, someone could get up to mischief and drain my battery twice as fast. 😟

The switch is probably on the outside of the unit so nearby campers annoyed by the bright lights left on all night can sneak up in the wee hours and turn them off.

Like the person did 2 years ago in one of our local campgrounds ? Didn't turn on switches, he unplugged power cords from the pedestal and then cut the cord off. He had a dozen cords in his truck when they found him.....in the campground....he was staying there. I wouldn't be worried about a switch.
