Need help finding a switch Challenger 36TL

First day with a Challenger. Really liking it! It has some issues. None are major.

This one is simply aggravating though...

This light which in under cabinet to the right of the microwave will not turn off. I have looked everywhere. Even had 2 guys at dealership look with me. The only way to turn the light off is to cut the 12 volt off to the whole coach. Anyone ever seen this? Did they forget the switch? I am about to go to Home Depot and just buy a rocker switch and cut under the cabinet. It's driving me nuts. If any of you have the 36TL can you tell me if you have a switch that turns this light on/off and where please. Appreciate any help. Thanks!!

If you have a remote that will ore than likely turn it on and off. Loks to be a night light

We have the same MH as you and the switch is just to the right of the light.

Contact Thor Customer Service and ask them to send you the switch. Tell them it was missed during assembly. Check the cabinet above the light to see if there is a false bottom in the cabinet for the wiring. Should be easy to tap into the wires going to the light.

There is a false bottom and sidewall of the cabinets. I was just going to get a small temp rocker switch just to shut it off without having to kill the whole 12v system. Have 10 to 12 item list for dealer so far. Gotta love the first trip in a new RV
