Need help Silverback 33rl

We have a switch that no one can tell us what it is for. Ours is a 2015 model, however, pretty sure it is the same on previous year models of Silverback. The switch is LIVE, but we cannot find the reason for it. Have not figured out how to post a photo. Need help with that as well. I have an i phone 4s.
The wall plate is right on the sink wall as you enter the RV. It is a flat toggle type switch and is closest to the end of the counter closest to the entry door.

I thought I responded to you in another post but I may be mistaken. In my Silverback that switch is for the ceiling fan. If nothing is happening when you push that switch then the ceiling fan and light are probably turned off via the pull chains.

Have you checked the ceiling fan, it has a chain up there too and it may be in the off position.

Since it is close to the door did you look outside to see if it for your scare light or awning light strip?

We don't have a Silverback but have a switch in our FW that goes to the plug outside for awning lights. Maybe that is what yours is for?

Tried that. No luck. Plugged in every outlet with something and no luck that way either. Called the factory and their c /s service and no answer either.
We DO KNOW IT IS HOT at the switch .
If I could figure out how to post a photo to this site from my I phone 4s, someone out there will know. Any ideas on how to post a pic?

Is there an outlet up high on the outside of he trailer for awning lights? Like I said on my prior post, we have 2 switches. One controls the fan/light in the living area and the other controls the plug outside for awning lights. It is up high on the trailer. We have never used awning lights and didn't realize what the switch was for. It did seem to operate anything. Finally figured it out.

The switch for my ceiling fan is just to the right of the electrical outlet in this picture. Is this the switch you are talking about? If so it controls the ceiling fan. Your ceiling fan does work doesn't it?
