Cap and hitch lights

New 2019 Montana 3931FB. My cap lights and amber LEDs do not work. What switch are they on. Exterior or maybe security? Dealer did not know. This includes the led over hitch. Any thoughts

Ours are located in the main switch panel inside.

My cap lights have a switch in the main panel. They also come on with I believe security. OOHHHhh ~~ but they do NOT come on with the switch. That lasted 2 nights.

They have a separate switch and come on with a group as well. Mine still come om with the group but not with the "cap light" switch.

On both of my rigs the cap led lights came on when the door side scare lights came on.

New to forum and new to 5th wheel trailer. We have a 2019 3791RD 20th Anniversary Montana. Our cap led amber lights come on when connected to shore power and stay on continuously day and night. We have been unable to find any switch or control to turn them on and off (interior or exterior)..We have had the dealer try as well as other Monty RVers we met. No one has been able to figure it out. No switch in or near the control panel works for these cap lights. Everyone has told us it’s a mystery. We are hoping for help with this issue at the upcoming rally. Look forward to our first one and meeting everyone.

That is a mystery. Mine will not come on at all with the switch but comes on with a group.. In the main panel of switches I do have a dedicated switch labeled ‘cap light’. My unit is not at home but a friend can get in this week for a picture. Sadly we cannot make the rally this year. Let us know what the fix is.

Thanks CaptnJohn! We will update you once we figure it out. BTW - we have no switch labeled for ‘Cap Light’ either. We tried all the group lights and they don’t affect the Cap lights either way. Very confusing!

When I picked up my 2015. Several of the groups were wired in wacky combinations, and I had my warranty tech re-land the wires to the switches that made sense to me.
It's not hard though, they're all right there in the command center.

My cap light switch did work for about a week Not a fuse so thinking the switch it self failed. I'll get at it one day.

When we got our 2019 2120RL the awning light switch would turn on only the main awning light. The awning light on the main slide would come on with the DS scare light switched on. I removed the light panel and found they had wired the switch incorrectly as the two awning wires should have been connected together and were not. Easy fix.



form what I seen on ours, I would guess maybe the wires are not even connected to the cap light switch.

I found my switch near to the battery disconnect key. I also read that some found the switch near the generator compartment in the front (if you have a front compartment). the switch was not marked and all by iteself

Light switches

I labeled my nose cap lights and fan switch.
The exterior lights and security lights have to turned on thru the In-command touch screen - two buttons on the bottom right of the screen.

Thank you everyone for the various great suggestions. Our trailer has been in for service so I haven’t had a chance to check these out. We are getting our trailer back this week so I will be eager to check out all these great ideas! Will keep you posted to our progress.
