led landing gear lights wont turn off

I have a 2016 3970 Voltage Toy Hauler and the led blue foot and nose cap lights will not shut off. The under belly flip switch did work for a while. I used that many times to turn leds on and off. Switch tested good. Any one know what the problem could be? I even unplugged the switch, but did not break the circuit?? This is bizarre.

We have one switch for the landing gear blue lights, which is one of the 4 buttons on the linc screen/panel (the one that does the slides and awnings from the inside also) and another switch for the nose cap blue lights, which is in the passenger side of the passthru storage area, on the right wall near the top. Not sure which is your issue, but check both.. Then start pulling fuses?

The docking lights, blue nose and landing lights are in our under belly. Two flip switches on the side wall. The docking light switch is functional. The other switch was working. Now all of a sudden, it plays no factor. Lights stay on regardless of switch position. I even tested the switch and its fine. Pulled the switch and unplugged it. Lights still remain on. Bazaar in my opinion.

I would start pulling fuses and see if something else is on the circuit too. I have a couple of circuits in my camper that are back fed because something is not connected properly. I can pull the fuse for the bathroom light, which also has the stove hood on it. If I pull the fuse for the front interior lights I get a cross feed back to the bathroom light and it comes on, even with the fuse pulled. All I can figure is that somewhere in the rat's nest of quality wiring is either a reversed ground/hot or something is grounding where it isn't supposed to. Unfortunately most of the wiring is buried in the walls along with the connections making it hard to troubleshoot.

Are those same lights controlled by the LINC remote? If so, I found that my outside light once turned on using LINC the switch inside will not turn them off. Has to be turned off using LINC in order for the switch to work again. Just a thought.

OMG! That was it! Problem solved. Thanks so much. I was playing with that remote yesterday and must have hit that light button.
