Avalanche 320RS - Where's the switch?

We just purchased a "new to us" 2017 Avalanche 320RS. It is our 4th camper. It has the two round lights above the hitch mirror. Where is the switch for these lights? Not a big deal, but I did spend a little time searching. I am sure I probably touched the switch trying to look behind it.....

Been on one trip so far and really happy with this camper. Headed to the beach for a long weekend on Friday.

In ours the switch is in the control center inside the rig. Ours has a few switches that aren't labeled but we figured out what they go to.

My cougar had those lights. The switch was outside under the overhang on the drivers side. It was also controlled from the remote.

On most of the remote systems before the In-Command came along, the remote "deactivated the switch"... So, if you turned the light on with the remote, the switch wouldn't work until you turn the light off with the remote. So, if you try the switch under the overhang and it doesn't do anything, try the remote, once the remote turns it off, the switch will work again.... Some people have reported "inadvertent switch activation" without any knowledge of the action, sort of like "butt dialing a cellphone" so you may not be aware that you ever turned the light on with the remote.

If you don't have the remote, you can do a "system reset" by disconnecting all power from the trailer and then shorting the 12VDC input on the remote receiver to ground. That will remove the "static memory" and reset the remote receiver... The receiver is usually installed in the forward curbside storage area, often on the ceiling of that space.

My cougar had that light with the remote and the switch under the overhang, I must of turned it on with the remote and couldn't figure out how to shut if off. I disconnected the wire. I Traded it in before I figured it out.

Although I have a 320RS, I’ve only located the switch once and never used it again. I’m not 100% certain, but I believe it’s in the battery compartment. I know it’s not somewhere that makes sense, like the control panel

Unless something has changed, the 320RS didn’t come with the “In-Command” control system. And from what I’ve read, that might not be a bad thing. Seems like the early versions of that system had some major problems.

And congrats on the 320RS! We love ours so far, no major problems, just a few minor ones here and there. Let me know if you need any help on other features of the 5th wheel.
