Default Courtesy/pathway light under couch

What controls the courtesy/pathway light under front of the slide out couch on an 85 FC SB? I have never seen the light on before today and I cannot figure out how to turn it off! Thanks in advance! I haven’t turned anything on that I know of, so I’m really stumped!

Thumbs up

Many thanks . Found the night light switch above the bed. Not sure how it got turned on. Could not find a switch near the driver’s quarters but at least I got it turned off!

My FC only had the switch in the bedroom. Nothing on the dash.

Same here. BTW, to avoid any excessive heat and accidental battery drains I switched those to LEDs using led license plate lights. Had to turn the light upside down in the housing and add some red colored tape so they weren't so bright! Now it has a nice muted reddish glow. Perfect for not bumping into things but soft enough to leave on all night.

I switched mine to LED's as well...the incandescent bulbs were incredibly HOT and I was afraid the carpet resting against the assembly would go up in flames.

Thanks to all for the info.

I will add LEDs to my list. Only the one under the couch works anyway!

If only one works, the others may just need the bulbs replaced.
If you move much when you are sleeping it is easy to hit that switch above the bed. I have woke up to find mine on a few times (I think Princess did it).
