Lights won't go off!!

Light by the battery bay will not go on. Changed bulb, still no light. DS flood light will not come on. ODS flood light will come on, but will not go off even when electric is unplugged and battery key is turned off. Hmmm. Any hints? Also, little exterior running light at top of entry stairs stays on when electric is unplugged and battery key is off. Is that normal? Just wondering.

Sally-- you don't mention what year and model Montana you have. This would help us diagnose the possible problem. Do you have a remote control for your unit that you can turn lights and other items on and off? We need these answered before we can help you.

Oh, sorry. We have a 2010 3455SA Hickory Edition. And, yes, we have a remote control. I'm just wondering if there is some stuff touching the remote in the drawer!!! Could that be it? Hmmm. You may be a genius, Rondo, and didn't even realize. lol. Thanks for any more info you may come up with.

The scare lights, and the under step light tied to the DS scare, have a unique feature, in that if turned on by the remote, they *MUST* be turned off by the remote. No amount of switch flipping will do it.

That is just one of the reasons that I put everything back on switches, took the batteries out of the remote and didn't look at it again until we traded the rig.

The remote on mine, which I use all the time when hooking or unhooking, only controls the DS scare and pinbox led. And yes, if you use it to turn them on, you need it to turn them off. But this is another topic, really. I don't understand why the OP can't turn her battery box light on unless the battery switch is off. And the porch light, which I assume she's referring to, not going off? Head scratcher. Sally, try the battery switch in both positions. The wording can be confusing. At least start with that. IF you haven't figured this out already.
