Why are lights on the same switch

Front cap LED lights coming on at the same time as the LED strip under the awning? Those front cap LED lights throw quite a bit of light that isn't really directed. The awning lights stay near your trailer "area" so that makes sense. You are not bothering your neighbors. If there is a good reason why they are on at the same time then please tell me so I will relax about it a little bit. Thanks

Ken

My North point has separate switch's for the cap lights that are located by the pinbox. I can't turn mine on or off with anything but those switch's

My pinnacle is the same way as yours. Only one switch. Kind of strange.

Our Pinnacle is on the same awning light swtch, too. Normally, thru the camping season here in northern Indiana, we have the unit setting on a leased seasonal camp site. It does light up the front lawn at night and, we have gotten a lot of compliments from passers-by as we are setting next to the camp fire.

Besides, I think it looks kinda' cool.

Our Eagle Premier lights up with one switch. There are times I'd like to isolate the front cap lights to be a little less flashy.

Separate switch would be good.

It looks way cool no doubt.

Just seems like you should be able to turn it off and still leave the awning strip on.

It just doesn't make sense to me that both sides (front and side) would have to light up at the same time.

Have a 38FLSA, same here, front cap and awning lights on at same time... there is a cover between the top of the stairs and the slide where the awning wiring comes in.. the wire going to the front cap led is behind that cover, it's carpeted with a single screw holding it to the wall.. initially I just cut the wire to prevent the front cap from coming on, I have now pulled that wire and re-routed it to the switch panel, conveniently there is a labeled blank for a light switch... I used a lighted switch (to remind me if I left cap lights on), one side of the switch is the cap light wire the other side is tapped to one of the 12v positive wires behind the panel..
