My new pinnacle has two switches for the two front cap lights one for lower one for the two top led strips. Two switches inside one for each awning led strip. Did notice if I turn on the front awning LEDs with the remote u cannot turn it off with switch must use remote. Might be rear awning cannot remember but took me a while to figure it out

Does anyone know where the wire is located on the 36FBTS that is referenced above?

Look at the outside and see where the awning light wires come through the wall into the trailer, they are black and red and about 18 guage, the point they pass through should be behind the awning bracket, on the inside at that location should be where the wires are... if I remember correctly the front cap led wire was orange (I will verify color next time at trailer) and was crimped to the red awning wire, from there the wire went through the floor and into one of the wiring looms...

On our FBTS the only wires coming in from behind the awning bracket are the power wire for the awning motor and one set for the awning light. I have been unsuccessful so far in finding the wire for the front cap lights. Our unit is the first 2016 the dealer had in and shortly after all the ones coming in have the separate switch. When I complained they told me they would install a switch if I paid for labor and materials! They said it was a Jayco "line" change and wouldn't install it for free.

Thanks, I'll check it out next time I'm at that coach.
Sounds like a good challenge, lol

This project added to the "to do list"

Ken,

Our trailer is the same way - 1 switch that turns on the step light, awning LEDs, & front cap LEDs.
Jayco explained the reasoning for this due to these lights are also controlled by our remote control.
If your able to turn your awning LEDs and front cap LEDs on & off via a remote control (along with the switch), this may explain why they are on the same switch.

You may want to look at this post: Eagle Premier Step/Awning Light Separation if you're considering separating them onto individual switches.

Hope this helps some.

On my remote there are 2 light buttons. One for the front awing and one for the rear awning. The rear awning light has 2 available settings. Not sure why they didn't separate them that way. Some of the people like our lights on all night as it gives some security lighting. Others want them OFF!!
