I have a Lunar 352 Ariva 2014, it's in the driveway over the winter with the mains plugged in to maintain the battery.

I can out the house today and the awning light was on ( over the door ). I checked inside and the switch was off,,

I have pulled fuse 1 lights and it's now off.

Where do I go from here please.

Hello
If a light comes on but fails to be controlled by its switch, my first suspicion is the switch it's self. If that is not the problem, then the wiring needs to be investigated, and if you are not confident at doing that, then clearly it's time to get someone who is competent to look at it.

Presumably the switch is part of the control panel - is that accessible to see if the switch and immediate wiring is OK (disconnect from mains and the 12v off at the distribution box just in case!).
How would you replace the awning light bulb? In my Elddis it's behind a small plastic cover in the relvant overhead locker - so as a temp solution could be removed

On my Coachman 2013, I had problems with the awning light staying on, took the master switch panel apart , light still on, eventually traced it down to the awning light switch on the key fob, it operates the circuit on the Sargent alarm unit, and is not overidden by the awning light switch, in the caravan. Maybe yours is the same

Dusty, on the Sargent 300 stinger Alarm, there is an electrically operated"" bit" that when you operate the alarm fob it will switch the awning light on for 1 MINUTE, then it goes off. There is another part of the fob that will switch the awning light on, and the awning light will stay on until that fob switch is pressed again. I have been caught out a few times at night by pressing the wrong switch on the fob. Until I found this out. Not all caravan are linked up to this part though.

No problem, it's only things that have happened to myself over the years and I can remember, I have a list of, "Remember that" on my Tablet thingy.
I now have three EHU cables after leaving them at home. So I don't remember everything. :)
