2013 Voltage 2950

After 4 years still trying to figure out what the second light switch inside the garage controls. It the double switch next to the entrance door from the kitchen where one controls the overhead lights but I can't find out what the other control. I have taken it apart and both side are wired to something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ours has a double switch next to the rear door too. One does the upper (ceiling) pair and the other does a lower pair, under the cabinets. There is also a single switch for the led string under the awning. Hope that helps!

Ok, my 3200 has THREE switches in the garage... under the upper cabinet, above the sliding glass door.

One is for a pair of puck lights under the cabinet, right by the switches...

Second is for a pair of double dome-type lights on the ceiling, forward of the happi-jack bunk bed...

Third is for a single double dome-type light in the ceiling, to the rear right by the ramp door. If the happi-jack bunk is fully raised, you can't see that light when operating the switch. I'm thinking you may have something similar to this?

LOL - my 3950 has one switch in the garage. Talk about inconsistency! Both of my step lights are operated by one switch in the control center.

My V3605 has the same set-up. Could the wiring issue be a depending upon what year made thing.

Thanks everyone. I double checked my outside lights and they are all controlled by the switches in the panel by the front door. The lights in the overhead of the garage that are under the loft bunk are controlled by local switches on each light. So I still haven't figured out the mystery switch by the door.

I have a mystery switch on the front exterior under the nose of the rig. There are two. One control the lights on the cap that light up the hitch. After speaking with several other owners, come to find out that on the non-full body paint models, there is a "V" in the front cap that lights up and this was the switch for it. Odd thing is that there are wires connected to it. I am going to use that switch to control my own jack lights similar to what is on the newer models.

We have 3 light switches under the rear cabinets also...
1 switch controls the under-cabinet puck lights, 1 controls the rear awning LED lights ( on curb side not rear of coach), and last one controls the 2 ceiling lights in the garage...BUT if the ceiling lights are switched off at the light... the under cabinet switch doesn't do anything... My kids will shut off the lights at the light because they are too lazy to climb out of the bunk and turn the switch off...

I don't know about that switch. I think mine controls the upper lights and the other controls the electric bed motor to raise and lower the garage bed. But let me tell you this! My V3950 is currently in the shop having the living room and bedroom slide floors replaced! It was going to cost me $8,500!!!!! But thankfully I bought it from a GREAT dealer, RV World of Georgia and they put upper management pressure on the warranty company and they are now covering it. The warranty contract does not cover water damage. CHECK YOURS NOW! Here's what to look for:
1) On the outside of each slide there is a piece of fascia trim board that goes around the edge of the slideout. Check the caulking. If ANY OF IT IS SEPERATING you are having a problem. Water gets behind that fascia board and can't get out. Look underneath your slideouts and closely check the flooor. Also check the trim hardware underneath. If you see rusty screws that is a warning sign. If you see evidence of scraping where the black undercoat is scraping off, that means the floor is swelled likely rotted. When the dealer called Dutchmen they said "sorry". Please help spread this to other Voltage Toy Haulers. IT ONLY AFFECTS 2013 and 2014 year models. They changed this fascia board application in the 2015 models.
