I'd appreciate any light on this.
Welcome to the form, ArDo.
If they are wired directly to the battery, they are aftermarket. It's odd that the person that installed them wouldn't tie into the stair lights, so they are controlled with the stair switch inside the camper. When sitting outside you can turn the stair light off at the fixture and relax in that nice glow.
I have seen a few rigs that had some serious light displays that are wired to the battery. We're talking lightshow stuff though, so maybe there was more than just the lights on the frame rails at one time.
