Bedroom Reading Light Issue

In our Montana we have two reading lights over the bed by the headboard. One seems to be on with very dim light when turned off. The other one is fine. This just started this season. Any ideas?

Ours are LED bulbs with a push button switch in the center of the light. If yours are the same, it may be a bad switch, or wiring issue in the fixture itself.

The OEM switches are of low quality. We replaced both of ours within the first 6 months.

If the bed is in a slide, raise the bed and remove the wood panel to expose the area under it. Look for any wires that have been cut/pinched etc.

Yeah one of ours did the same thing. Had it replaced during maintenance last fall and now the new one that lights by touching it, keeps coming on when not needed. We are not replacing it again so we just put up with it and tap it off.
