Question What do these two switches do?

I have a Flagstaff 829RGSS TT and I am trying to figure out what two switches in the trailer do. Everything else I have finally figured out. Anyhow, the two switches in question are the two on the right hand side of the front room door. The left of the two must have something connected because I get a light dimming effect, but nothing turns on or off that I can tell. The right of the two doesn't seem to do anything. If anyone knows or has suggestions of how to track their function down it would be appreciated.

One may be the gas ignitor for the hot water heater this one should have a red light on it and the other may be for the heated tanks just a guess but that what mine are for and we have a very simlar unit or i was just thinking one may turn the light on right above it and the other may be the outside yellow porch light like other post said picture would help tons

I'm not familar with your trailer, but here's one idea.

They may be light switches. The left one will turn on/off the light closest to your door. You can also turn the light on/off at the light itself just like all the others, if the switch is in the on position. The light must be turned on at the light itself in order for the switch to operate the light. It may seem like the lights just dim if you have other lights on and are not watching the light fixtures when you operate the switch.

The right switch would be for your outside light.

I'm not sure if this solves your problem but I'm sure you'll get it figured out soon.

I have an 829 RGSS as well and my TT is not here with me now but the switches are either for the light on the opposite side of the TT or they are for the (2) small step lights inside and outside by the steps. These step lights in mine have a silver cover over them. There is one just inside of the front door and one just outside to the left of the steps as your walking out. The light on the opposite side is toward the front of the TT by the bedroom window if I remember correctly.
Hope this helps....

This is a great help! I hadn't thought of those lights. I do not have a cover over the outside light so it sounds like I need to make a trip to the dealer for some parts. Next time I am at my trailer I will check it out. We haven't had a chance to use it yet and are really getting excited about a first trip.
