CAN SOMEONE TELL US IF THERE IS A SEPERATE SWITCH FOR THE LIGHTS IN THE BOTTOM COMPARTMENTS. EACH LIGHT HAS A SEPERATE SWITCH ON THEM. WHEN WE SWITCH THEM ON THE LIGHTS DON'T COME ON. WE HAVE A 2001 JOURNEY. COULD THIS BE A FUSE, IF SO WHERE WOULD THIS BE LOCATED. DRIVERS SIDE PORCH LIGHT DON'T WORK EITHER, COULD THIS BE ALL TIED TOGETHER.

Hi Ron and Patti,

Welcome to the forum

To answer your question, yes there is a master compartment light switch on our 2002 Journey. The switch is located right by the entry door with 3 other switches. On our rig, the switches are for the compartment lights, the ceiling light, the porch light and the aisle light.

First thing to check is to make sure the master switch for the compartments is turned on. If it is, and the lights still don't work you may have a blown fuse. Since the porch light switch is located in the same place as the master compartment light switch, it is possible that they are fed by the same fuse or circuit breaker. (or it could also be that your porch light is just burned out)

I don't recall which of the two breaker panels on our rig has the breaker for those lights, but you can check your inside panel as well as the one under the hood for a tripped breaker.

Joe

Ron & Patti,

Welocme to IRV2.

Check you caps lock key, mixed case typing is a lot easier on our old eyes.

Also while we're talking about the lights, if you don't want them blinding you each time you turn them on, put some masking tape on the part nearest to you. Helps a lot.

In my Journey, the driver side "porch light" is turned on by flipping the light switch in the dump valves/water fill compartment (also on the driver side). It also turns on that compartment light. I would probably call that a "dump station light" rather than a "porch light" as it's intended to illuminate the area where you're dumping or filling. As mentioned by others, the passenger side porch light is turned on by a switch by the steps, and that is also where the master switch for all the other compartments is. BTW, even if my master switch is on, my compartment lights don't turn on unless I open a compartment door.

Ron,

Can't help you with your switch question but do you think maybe you could stop "SCREAMING" at us in your posts. Turn off your caps lock.

Hi RON AND PATTI,
Please ask, that's what we're all here for! Everyone learns from the questions ˜and' the answers. Something you might try is to edit your text in a word processor like ˜Microsoft Works Word Processor' then copy and past your text into the forum windows. This reduces the pressure to get your words down just right in that small box and allows you to see all of what you have written plus having the ability to spell check if your like me.

Ron and Patti,

The reference to SCREAMING is a reference to using all caps to write a message. Forum etiquette says caps are yelling, where lower case or mixed case is conversational. Please don't take offense to the suggestion. Of course all your questions and comments are welcome and can be of great value to you and to other readers. Welcome.

Could somebody please direct me to the forum ettiquete (sp?) section? I just signed on and am afraid to ask any questions after reading the STRONG criticism for typing in all caps.

Heaven forbid I should commit any such drastic error as a newcomer.

As a final comment, I find it much easier to read all caps.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Now SGT.....here's what they're talking about.

Netiquette

Internet Etiquette (Netiquette)
Written by featherjinxer
There are so many new members at Tailfeathers everyday, we though it would be useful to compile a list of the basic netiquette as it applies to this message board. For those of you new to the Internet, this is generally universal everywhere- and a good reference for the rest of us!

#1 Capitalizing, Punctuation, and Grammar
Typing in all caps is considered shouting. Who wants to read a post where the person screams at you the entire time? The majority of users simply ignore those posts, and any valuable information is lost. Please do NOT use all caps.

Another helpful note when you are asking questions is the make and model of the coach as there are yearly changes. Also the different models have different appliances. Welcome to the forum. Sorry some of our members don't know HOW to be polite.

Come on Rick, give them a break, they didn't know any better for goodness sake.


Ron and Patti> I have a 2000 Horizon and a big pile of books and documents in a briefcase looking thing, but you know I don't think I have a specfic 'owner's manual' with it either. Is this something that one has to buy seperately? We bought this coach new.
So, if I don't have one, where does one buy one and is it specific to a certain model coach?
