led lights on power awning

We have a jayco eagle 23.5RBS 2014 5th wheel and discovered yesterday there is a strip of led lights along the awning, but we cant find anyway to turn them on. It is wired into the power awning.

On our Eagle TT the LED strip is turned on with the single unnamed black rocker switch. The strip could be bad. We just had our 3rd set replaced under warranty.

Look behind the top step inside the step frame. If there is a small amber light fixture there, that is what they're calling the step light. The LED light usually comes on with it. Our switch says awning1/step

There is an unnamed rocker switch and tried it but nothing happened, so maybe it is the strip. There is a lught behind the step but nothing happens when the rocker switch is pushed. Which is another probrm as when you push the rocker switch up or down, it doesnt stay there, it goes back to the middle

From your discription, that rocker switch sounds like it's the battery disconnect switch. Press the switch and hold it for approximately 1-2 seconds. If you hear a distinct "Click/thump noise" then you've either connected the battery or disconnected the battery. It's easy to determine, if you're not on shore power and you've got house lights after the Thump then you've "connected" the battery. if you're not on shore power and you don't have house lights then you've "disconnected" the battery. Ofcourse you'll need to actually turn on a light to actually verify.

Good luck! Learning and figuring out these systems is part of the Fun!!!
