Cargo storage lights

All the lights in my 2014 Challenger 37Gt storage cargo bays are not working. Cannot locate the switch! Maybe a fuse but still it must have a switch. Can anyone help me with this please.

Well in my 2016 ACE they all have their own individual switch; no common switch, but a common fuse.

Yes but,..

My light fixtures also have individual rocker switches but I a quite certain there must be a common switch inside the Motorhome that cuts power on and off to all the lights. I checked my fuses and they are good but they are not getting any power to them.

I don’t know wiring specs on your model, but…
- if you register your coach on the Thor website you can get a wiring schematic that will provide all the details you need on how those lights are powered

Well it may, but don't you think you would have found that switch in the 2.5 years you've owned the MH?

My 2015 Challenger did not have a storage compartment light master switch. Each light had its own switch.

Power maybe wired in parallel. You may need to open and remove each switch to look at the power connections. It seem that the first light in line may have a wire that came loose. Some manufactures use twist-on wire connectors behind the light fixtures. If they have not been taped, then they can come loose. If a wire was not pull tested after twisting, it may not have been installed and secured properly and finally pulled loose on its own. This is true for trailers, but I have not had to open my Palazzo lights so I do not know what Thor does for DC power wiring connections to the lights.

You are right! I am pretty sure I would have stumbled across the unknown switch in all my DIY repairs and poking around. I have also looked at all the electrical info on Thor website without luck finding a schematic. I’ll send them a personal message.

Tuscany has a master switch labeled compartment lights and another compartment locks

They also have independent rockers

They were the only non led lamps in the coach and are now bright white leds

If you left all the incandescent lamos on it was a decent battery drain

First day in the Tuscany at the dealer overnight i went over every switch and control

I was getting ready for driving NE across Dallas the next day towing in rush hour
