Pin Box Light

I have the built-in light over the pin box.
Where is the switch to turn it on?

Not sure what year or model you have. Mine is a 2013 3150RL. Our light at pin box is controlled by the DS(door side) switch. It turns on the DS Spotlight, light under steps and pin box light. Hope this helps.

Ours is like that also. I think that's the standard.

On my 2016 Montana 3440 with the computer control, it is located on the Security light switch/button, which is also the big outside lights switch.

We also have a "remote" which handles slides, hydraulic jacks and the outside lighting which also turns on the pin box light. This came with our 2013 3402RL.

I have a 2010(11) 2955RL and I found that that is how mine works.
Thanks for all the replies.

Good luck with it being any help. I tried using ours once years ago and the truck cab rear light works far better. I've since forgotten how to turn it on.

On my 3791RD, it comes on when I turn on the porch light. (the light over the door and under the entry steps)

Ours is in the hallway next to the bathroom door behind a cabinet door with the slideout switches, tank guages, and other light and fan switches, which is a stupid place to locate a light at the pinbox IMHO.

The light behind the stairs also turns on when the DS light is on. I wish it would only turn on with the porch light. Makes more sense that way! Any to modify that?

My ‘17 305RL has several unidentified switchs - had to wait till dark to find out what they controlled. One was LED under coach, second was Pin Light and third I forgot. Pin lights best use is in camp ground so I don’t run into to it while snipe hunting.

Our 2018 has a separate switch just for that light on the control panel. It was not marked but will be soon!

I figured they were there so you didn't walk into the pin box in the dark while camping?
