Just Curious - Overhead Lights

We have a while until our first trip out but we occasionally visit our TT in our driveway. While in there last weekend, my husband finally took down the light over the dining table and turned it around. For some reason the installers put the switch closer to the window, instead of closer to the edge of the table so that it can be reached while standing between the table and couch. I am short (5'3") so I always had to climb into the dinette seat to reach the switch. Now I can reach it while standing near the table! Has anyone else noticed theirs being installed like ours, or was it just ours??

Haven't seen fixtures installed in such a way however, have noted weird placement of switches in general. They appear to be positioned as to ease manufacture instead of logic.

Yes, I have to agree, some light switches are put in odd places. I have a 2012 31.5FBHS. The bed lights above the head of the bed, one has to crawl on the bed to turn them on. If on is in bed, one has to get up to turn them off. Can't reach it from the prone position. In the john, the light switch is second to the vent fan switch. To top it all off, they put the living area light switch in a compartment on the end of the cabinet instead of on the wall inside the door.
