Blue light in the shower

I have an Eagle HT with a blue light (tiny ) in the shower. When I turn on the switch, it does not come on. We have not used this light and it is a 2016 5th wheel. Has anyone else had this issue? How was it fixed?


Thanks.

According to my dealer, mine didn't work when they did their PDI. They fixed it. But the thing is so bright and lights up the whole trailer, we never used it. When we did a few times I had to put a couple layers of masking tape on it, it's that bright. We had the dealer remove it and put a matching ceiling light in.

No, it can only be a few things. Bad light, bad switch, improperly wired switch or the light, also wiring connections/disconnected. Is there power to and from the switch? Is there power at the light?

yes, loved the idea of the blue light for a night light , but yes it needs to be 1/4 as bright as it is - we never use it either.

We just have a simple plug-in nightlight, inserted in the power outlet in the bathroom, so we don't have to tun on the main light

Might be able to put a dimmer switch on it. We couldn't sleep with it on. Even with the bathroom door closed it still made the whole trailer glow blue and into the bedroom. So said no more of that. Lol Changing it out to a ceiling light made a huge difference in the bathroom lighting, especially in the shower. For those late night visits, we can turn on just the shower light instead of the two ceiling lights so it's not a bright.

Works good till you boon, then no 120v for it. We do the same. We use those little white plastic ones with the green gel or whatever it is night lights. Works good when you have power. We have night lights in every outlet. The ones we use do not disturb sleeping and provide just enough light.

I don't use the bathroom 'blue-light' as a conventional night-light.

I only use it during those late night nature-calls...., easier on the eyes and less disturbing for those sleeping.

Nite-Shades auto paint will dim it, if that is your desire.

I don't know who thought blue LEDs were the best choice for this. . . .
