Lighting Switch Location

2022 Montana 3231CK - Unable to find electrical switch or any way to turn on the 2ea. 4" round lights above the dining table and 2 ea. of the same type of lights above the countertop where the microwave is located. Are there separate switches or are these lights supposed to come on with other area lighting circuits?

Should have a round button in the center of the light cover.

Coincidently, I have 4 lights in my 2021 3762BP that I cant figure out how to operate. They are not the push (boobie) lights like above but are in the main kitchen area, way way to far up to be push lights.

I am on 50amp service and dont see any blown fuses.

Suggestions?

Not familiar with your model. In mine the ceiling lights not on the slides are controlled from the control panel cabinet.

Yeah, I do have a "Ceiling" switch in the cabinet that doesnt seem to do anything. Im sure thats it but dont yet know why it isnt working... Its plenty bright with the other 4 lights in the area.

Thank you for your response, ill update when I seem to find the fix.

Do you have a picture you can share? I am not familiar with what all lights are installed these days.

My 2022 has 2 switches in the switch panel for lighting. One for ‘interior’ which is basically those in the crown molding and the other ‘ceiling’ which works those I believe you are asking about

Lighting Switch Location

It’s a push button switch. Look closely throughout your rig. Some of the disc LED lights have a raised plastic nipple in the center of the disc, and some don’t. The ones with the plastic nipple are push button discs. In my rig it’s the dinette, the kitchen light in the slide, the under cabinet light in the coffee hutch and the two in the bed slide.

Those are the lights and yes, they are suppose to come on with the switch in the cabinet.... Mine aren't coming on...haven't troubleshoot anything...but thank you for validating that the cabinet switch is suppose to work them ��

Strange on my Montana all light switches are red except that one, it’s black.
Probably the easiest thing to replace on a 5er. Had one fail years ago and bought a spare.
May just be a loose wire connection but pull the cover and meter the wiring and switch

I have a 2017 3921FB & my kitchen, living, hallway & LED accent light “switches” are on my inCommand display. Could this be where you’ll find yours?

Remember I’m old! When looking to trade our 19 Montana for a 22 there was 1 item I would not have. A $2.00 switch is easier to replace and less expensive than a board. If I could have found a Legacy in the model she wanted without that we would done it fast

I have a 2019 3811MS - on the wall in the kitchen are below the thermostat is are 2 light switches. The left switch turns on the light above the sink/island. The one to the right doesn’t seem to turn anything on. Any ideas what it’s for? I would think it would turn on the 2 hallway lights but those turn on in the command center. I would attach a picture but don’t know how………

Our set up looks similar and the switch operates the pantry light.

Rod - what I noticed in your photo is the LaCrosse clock on the wall, and it shows 64* with 52* as a low…nice. It was 102 here. We are having an August in June.

We live in Mesa Az and it’s been hovering between 100 & 112 so we headed to northern Arizona mountains for a couple months. I feel your pain.
