2012 komfort 2410rk-Porch light problems

Hi everyone- Just bought a used 2012 komfort 2410 rk and used it once for a shake down cruse. Everything works great except the rear porch light only comes on when turning on porch light switch or using the remote control. My question: The front porch light and the big porch light on the slide out side do not come on. Checked bulbs (good), and shows no voltage at these two lights. Are all these lights connected in series or is there a separate switch that I have not located that will turn on the other two outside lights? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Phil

I really don't know what the designers (using the term loosely) of these units are thinking of, when it comes to lighting. We have a porch light on our Denali fifth wheel, but it is on the hinge side of the door, so as soon as you open the door, it blocks the light on the stairs.
We have friends who have an Aerolite with one of those large circular exterior lights, but the switch is nowhere near the door. It is at floor level inside their trailer, below the fridge.
Only explanation that we can think of - it saves about 8 feet of wiring.
I might add a solar light like some showed on a previous posting.

You might like this engineering marvel brought to us by Dutchman. I too have a nice oval work light mounted to the side of my rig, right at the head of the bed. Not such a deal in of itself except when it rains.

The gutter drops the water directly onto this hollow fixture that amplifies the drops as it is further amplified inside the curved nose cone where my head is!
