Switch in cabinet under mid-section TV

I have a 2008 Berkshire that has a button in the cabinet under the TV in the living room. I cannot figure out what the button/switch does!

There is another switch that is the antenna booster...just in front of that (closer to the cabinet door) is the black switch that can be pressed up or down. Any idea what this is?

I believe that is the case for my 2008 as well.

trtt,
I guess you didn't consult the extensive, detailed manual that comes with your coach!!! NOT!

I would not have figured that out! Wow. Thanks for the information.

Tmmar, my thoughts exactly! It is a beautiful coach with all the trimmings and the manual is the opposite...with a picture of a 80's coach on the front cover! Oh well...the forum makes up for it!

Thanks, all!

On my 2013 390RB:

Button in (ON), green light ON: For TVs to use antenna broadcast signal (also puts 12VDC to antenna booster/signal strength LEDs above driver's head); must have that local switch ON also.

Switch out (OFF) green light OFF: For TV to use cable signal.

I found that same switch today. I have no idea what it is for either. I'll do more investigation tomorrow when I have less people here.

Today was friends taking the tour of the new wheels....lol, enjoyable for the first three tours, it got kinda old after #5.

also to note, the surround sound only works with the dvd player. satellite tv, over the air, anything else you put connect in does not use the surround sound unless you have an input into the dvd player for audio.

That little black switch controls the speaker or subwoofer? that is below the DVD player.
