It would be appreciated if any member of the forum who has a Topaz Eyre 2017 (series 2) preferably with a north / south bed. Could advise if their kitchen lights have independent switches or can only be switch off by the main switch by the door.

Our Topaz is a 2016 series 2 but I don’t think the lighting has changed. On ours, the kitchen lights can only be turned on and off with the switch at the door.

Thanks Rob I have had a discussion with TT and they advised that the supplier stopped making the kitchen lights with a switch hence the only way to turn off the lights is by the switch at the door. The only problem is that the right hand lights over the bed are on the same circuit, therefore the kitchen lights have to be on to use the bed lights. Hence my query as the manual states that all internal lights apart from the roof lights have independent switches.

I am not sure of the wiring circuit. However, it may or may not be possible to put switches on the kitchen lights. If all are on the one circuit then could require running additional wiring. Not easy.
Have Track got an obligation to sort it out especially if this is not what you ordered .

In my 2015 Topaz Savannah, the 3 under hatch kitchen lights are on the same circuit as the RHS spot/bed lights and the RHS Sirocco fan. However, each kitchen light has its own switch built in to the light, as do the spot/bed lights and the fan, so the master switch by the door turns them all on and then you turn each light and fan on or off  individually as required.  I would think that having to have the kitchen lights on when only the fan or the bed light is required would be unworkable for me.  We often have the fan on during the night and it would be terrible to have to have the kitchen lights blazing as well.

If your Topaz has a spare switch in the switch panel at the door as mine does, I would consider putting the kitchen lights onto that.
