There is a large round light or ?? mounted at the front top corner of the entry side under the awning. It is approximately 6 to 9 inches in diameter. What is it? If in fact it is a light where do you turn it on?

Thanks

Supposedly called a "scare light" as it is quite bright and gives a lot of coverage if you hear a raccoon or bear vandlizing your truck or something.

My old Holiday Rambler 5th had one at all four corners which was quite useful. This should be an option on our Redwoods.

On an RL, the top row of switches above the thermostat contols it. I think it's the left switch when facing it.Edited by: 5th_Time

On my 2013 RL it's the far right switch on the bottom row. It is right next to the porch light.

on my 2012 RL it is the middle switch on the bottom. It comes on the same time as the one above the door. Funny how the same model has the same switch in different places.

This light allows you to see who you're shooting late at night

On our 2012 36FB there are two banks of switches at the stairs between the kitchen & bath. One bank has 3 switches; LR, Kitchen & Island. The other bank has two switches; one for the exterior porch light (amber bulb above the entry door) the second switch controlstwoseparateexterior white lights; one above the entry door (in samereceptacleas porch light) and the other is the scare light at the front entry side corner.

We had an old Holiday Rambler Imperial (96 model) that had 4 of those lights. They were "security" lights according to the switch on the wall in the living room of the HR. Real bright lights, a definite plus if you are wandering around your coach at night. I agree that RW should offer those as an option as they are quite helpful

I like that Redwood just puts it on one side so you can actually use it as a yard light. Our last rig had them on both sides tied to the the same switch so you couldn't use them without blinding your neighbor. Edited by: atom ant

Oh, so it only 'scares' the bad guys over to the other side

Would be nice if one was installed on each side with separate switch's.
