2011 DRV 36RSSB3 front docking lights

I’ve spent too long looking for a switch to turn on the front docking lights. The rear ones come on when I’m hooked up and have the truck in reverse. I have not checked the bulbs in the front. Is there a switch somewhere to turn them on?

They're called scare lights. The switches are in the control cabinet next to the entrance door.

Well I’ll try them all again. If I find the switch will they all come with just one switch?

Two separate switches. One for each side.

Unsure of the DRV, but on our fifth wheel, there's a switch just to the left of the front bay.

Front light switch is inside the hydraulics control door.

Thanks for the help. 2 switches top left of the control panel, and they even say “Scare”. ����*♂️
Flipped them on and off trying to see what they we’re for several times. Never read the word scare.

There is a difference between "docking and scare" lights. You have discovered the scare light switches. The docking lights are up front in the hitch area to make hooking and unhooking easier in the dark.
Not sure about your year and model #, but on mine the docking switch is to the front on the off door side inside the basement. Other units I have had the switch was near the front on the outside, with the landing gear controls.
