Usually with a switch near the doorway right next to the porch light switch.

Hmmmm, ours is as described a switch at the doorway next to the porch light. Do you have any switches that are a mystery as to what they are for? Do they, perhaps, go on with your porch light?

Thor's MO is a 3 unmarked switch cluster with one switch for interior lights, one for porch light and one for awning light. May be near the kitchen.

Don't know what model you have but on my 23TR it is exactly as described by Tfryman. Just inside the door on the left, sink high.

Do you have one of the RapidCamp remote controls? If it was used to turn on or off the awning lights, it is overriding the switch. I would also check the wiring behind the switch just to see if it has juice or isn't connected properly.

Good luck!

We hope that you'll soon be "shedding some light" on what the solution turns out to be!

I had a similar issue with my awning lights and it was as stated. I had used the Rapid Camp and it was over ridding the switch.

I got tripped up by this one also... it's easy to make this mistake!

I get if you turn them on with switch or remote you must turn off the same way. But if they are off won't either one turn them on?

That's the way that they should work...
I'm no electrician; but I'd be looking at the fuses, and the switch.
