    Can't find a light switch

    Picked up the new 268BH, got it home, no issues.
    I'm going over the entire rig, and there is a rond light above the docking station and what I assume to be a puddle light at the bottom of the side. They appear to be tied together and I'm assuming they are courtesy lights for the docking station.
    I looked all over and also looked in the manual and I can't find a switch for them. I thought they might be on a motion sensor so I closed the hatch and after a couple of minutes they were still on.
    What's the story with them?

    Have you checked in the water hookup area on the Nautilus panel?

    I wouldn't look at the light, but feel right in the middle, there usually is a push button there that will turn it on and off.

    I thought I looked at the panel and don't remember a switch. Neither does DW.
    There's nothing on the light cover, it just pops off.

    Okay, then I'm with @FT4NOW, probably in the Nautilus panel.

    UPDATE...
    I called GD cust support this AM to inquire about the switch and it's location. Guy did not have a clue, stammered around, then said he was going to "check on it" and call me back. This was after he wanted to send me a light and suggest that I haul it back to the dealer. That was this morning. Havn't heard anything, so I called my salesman to see i he could get any info from one of the dealership techs. Right off the bat, he told me where it is. For anyone else's info it's located under the front cap next to the switch that operates the hitch light for night time hitching, So, problem solved. While I and grateful to my salesman and appreciative that he knows his products, this not give me a feeling of confidence about GD tech service. I'm hoping I won't need to call them again.

    Another update...
    Forget the previous update

    There was only one switch and that was for the hitch night light, so it's back to calling GD tomorrow and hope I get a different rep.

    There may be a switch on the light or alongside of it.
    The switch is usually an on/off with a motion setting.

    On my TT, the light in a similar location is motion based. And it's quick -- if you aren't watching pretty closely, you might think it was never turning off, because the hatch opening triggers it almost immediately as you lift it.
