2716G 2020 how turn off bathroom light?

Hi, i dont know how to turn off the bathroom light without turning off the main roof switch ( which disables the vent and other lights). The seller claims its always "on" but that seems fishy. The battery will drain fast, the light will keep me awake and there is a small button on the light but it doesnt turn off and on the light.

i suspect the light is at fault and the seller is a liar

anyone can help me ?

all the ceiling lights in my camper and my previous popup - I have been able to turn off and on each individual light at the light itself - a switch on the base of the light.

bad switch??

Sure sounds like a faulty switch.

That light is different from the rest, it has a push button in the ring surrounding the light that needs to be pushed. If the button doesn't turn on and off the light, the light is defective and needs to be replaced.

If you can post a picture of the light, we may be able to help you find a new switch.

If you can take the light down and post a picture of the back side, even better.

A picture of the wiring could also be helpful.
