Electrical trouble shooting. Check power to light socket , check fuses, check wiring. Etc.

If you have a remote, try using the outside light button on the remote first. Sometimes they are in "override" mode when the dealer preps them (means they used the remote instead of the inside switches).

Clear light that acts as a security light. Not all units have them, mine does not.

We've got 2 of 'em. One on the Door Side high on the nose and the other on the opposite side high near the rear cap. They give kind of a flood light effect. The door-side is connected to the remote.

My 5th wheel has one one each side in the rear. It lights up the neighhbor pretty good haha... I'm sure there would be some knocks on the door if this got turned on at a camp ground.

Mine has a weep hole in the bottom of the large lens and one side filled up over time and was running water inside the trailer through where the wiring went. I was scratching my head on that one until I noticed the weep hole was on the top and not the bottom like the other side scare light was.

My two lights are right under the roof drain spout...

The scare light on my OFF-ROAD POPUP gets used alot. It is mounted on from wall where the front deck is. Perfect light for hooking up the trailer.

That's a key point, insuring that when the lens are attached the weep hole/slot is in the correct location.

This also applies to marker lights..., years ago I found that one of my marker lights had the plastic base installed with the weep-slot facing up, had to remove it and re-install correctly. Over the years moisture would still build up in them so I just drilled a small weep-hole in the bottom of the plastic lenses (no more moisture).

Update:
fixed the light, removed the switch checked and discovered it had no power into the switch. further checking discovered the switch only had power when the awning switch was used. Long story short is they had the scare light switch powered from the awning motor wire instead of the other black wire that provides continous power to the awning switch. simply unhooked the wrong wire and put the tee into the correct wire.
