Outside light wont shut off.

Hi everyone. I have a 2014 Dutchmen 3970 and the problem that I have is with my outside security light at the passenger side right in front of the awning.

When we first got it everything was working fine. Then the light would not come on and I had just dismissed it as a burned-out bulb. Yesterday I noticed that the light has come on, and went to shut it off. I have gone over every switch that is on the panel and any potential switches anywhere else on the unit. Nothing will shut this light off! My son thought perhaps it may have been a light controlled by a photocell but this morning when we got up the light is brightly shining. I removed the switch panel to see if a wire had fallen off or there was a loose connection somewhere. Everything seemed in order . Has anybody heard of this before? Thanks in advance for your assistance and direction on where I should look.

Not sure if we're talking about the same light, but if you go into your basement on passenger side on the front wall, there are two switches, one for the basement light and the other for an exterior light. Good luck.

My 2014 V 3605 security light is controlled by the Remote and also the touch screen on the wall. This is the Remote that controls your slide's
