    Hi, We have just taken delivery of our new (to us) motorhome. It is a Chausson Welcome 17 (2004). There are two odd things that i am struggling with. First, how do you turn the bathroom lights off? I can't find a switch anywhere. And second, how do you turn the radio off? Again it doesn't appear to have an on/off button. We have had to resort to removing the faceplate.

    Hope someone can help!

    Hi and welcome.......

    Have you really looked everywhere for a light switch ?

    i say this because my last van, different maker, had the bathroom light switch on a wooden trim panel on the ceiling :Eeek:

    radio off button.
    some radios need to have the on/off button pressed and held in for a second or two before it turns off....you need to experiment

    Thanks Pappajohn,

    Yes I/we/the neighbours really have looked everywhere! I'll go and try the radio again.

    My bathroom light switch is on the panel on the underside of the wall cupboard & because it's white, like the fitting, it took me a while to find it. It's also quite a large square, unlike any other light switches.
    I, too, am still trying to work out how the radio switches on and off !! I resorted to pressing every button til it went off.

    Our bathroom light switch is on the wall just outside the bathroom , next to the kitchen light switch . We looked all over for ours too.

    Thanks Philb! Just where you said it was. It is tiny, and not what I was looking for!
