We've finally got our MH albeit used and a 2007, but we are happy with it as its got one hell of a wad of paperwork to it...

My question is, althou the seller Bill showed me quite a bit on how to use the gear inside bless him l didnt ask on how he turned on the interior corner lights that sit at the rear, i know about the side ones but the ones that are in the corner im lost with.. Could it have been that he had it it on hook up?

If any one can help L'd appreciate it as its driving me mad...

Without seeing a photo of the lights in question, can't say for sure, but I think the lights you are talking about ARE 240V Aac lights :)
On my 2007 Model Cheyenne, I have a pair of 240V AC lights at the front behind frosted shades.
If yours are like mine, they will be controlled by a rotary dimmer switch, so also make sure that is on when you try the lights when on hookup.

Thats the ones... Thought it was due to being on hookup... curious to know where would this rotary switch be?

Well, on mine, it is on a pillar on the side wall between the kitchen and lounge area and above a 240V socket in a CBE set.

FYI ... CBE is a company that makes electrical fittings for motorhomes and very commonly used. If you have 240V sockets, and switches, and a TV aerial socket say, each in a dark grey square mount, grouped together and with likely a silvery surround, you have CBE fittings. If they look much more like domestic wall sockets, then they are pre-CBE (Autotrail switched to using CBE maybe around 2006? If your van is a 2007 model year it should be like mine I think. But it could be an earlier design year even if 2007 registered).

Sounds like your seller was like mine .... All the paperwork, a two hour handover to show me everything and then a bit of a quiz to check I had been listening!
