Lighting problem

I own a 2015 Sunset Trail 240BI. My boys and I love it. I bought it 2 years ago. We’ve been all over. It has worked superbly. I have one small issue. The led rope light in the awning roll around has never worked. I disconnected from power at the end of the rollbar I checked for voltage at this point and have zero volts. I don’t know which switch is supposed to control this light. Can anyone give me any pointers to trace this back to the power source? Thanks

On mine it is the switch on the main panel that I circled in this photo.
There is a good chance that they don't work though.

My panel looks completely different but there is one light switch that doesn’t apparently control anything. I guess that would be the one. But turned on I get no power going to the awning light. I’ll have to try tracing it back
Thanks for the input

The switch that doesn't seem to do anything might be for the scare lights.

On mine, that requires turning on another switch to make them come on.

If you do get power to it, most will be not working, just give up.

Check the power source at the awning while you have someone else turn switches on one at a time. Could also be a fuse.

My dad made a tool about 50 years ago when we used to restore old British autos that would work well for that. He took a 12v automotive light bulb and soldered a wire to the center prong and one to the outside of the housing. Then he attached small alligator clips to the other end of each wire. You just clip it the the circuit you want to test, and you can see from a distance if the light comes on when energized.

It is still hanging on a nail in my garage.

Pic of panel for light switches, etc.
Switch on the left with an S under it has to be in the on position to let the two switches on the right actually be able to turn on the individual scare lights.
Hope this makes sense to you.
Good luck.
