Default Light over the bed problem

One of the LED lights over the bed in our 19' RBS won't turn off. We did have a leak and I think it may have gotten wet. Can anyone help me either get it turned off or give me information on how to replace the light?

If it will not turn off the problem would most likely be the switch.

I'm pretty sure it's the switch. I just have no idea how to repair it or to at least turn it off.

As others have said, it’s likely the switch. You could take the switch out and take one of the wires loose from the switch. That would turn the light off. If that doesn’t turn the light off, somehow voltage is getting to the light from another source. But, start with the switch. 12 volts won’t shock you even though you might see a little spark when you break the connection. If you are worried, pull the fuse on the circuit while you are working on it. Until you get a new switch, tape up the naked end of the wire, or put a wire nut on it to keep it from touching anything that might conduct to the frame, and blow your fuse. It might seem like 12 volt switches should last longer than 120 vac, but the DC current is much harder to switch, thus switches don’t last as long. Good luck.
