Mystery switch question from Newbie

We just bought a 2006 Lexington M210 (with 10k miles and clean as a whistle--couldn't be happier) This forum has been so very helpful in answering all my questions (without me actually having to ask them) and the manual(s) leaves just a tad bit to be desired. However--cannot figure out what this one dang switch is for. It is an unlabeled toggle below the frig and between the converter and battery on/off key. Thanks!

Well I'm no genius but.....
Is it my imagination or is your co detector off? "Appears the green light is off"
I've seen someone before switch there co detector before as there hardwired and will contribute to battery drain when not hooked to shore power.
Just a possibility. ...

Thanks, Turbs. Switch still a mystery to me, but your observation about my lack of a lit green light led me to discover that my LP detector needs replacing. (@ 5 year life, so THEY say'; maker now out of business but similar size can be had on Amazon) Once that comes in, the mystery switch's utility may reveal itself. Thanks for your very helpful observation. Patty

An LP, CO, or combination LP/CO detector should never be on a switch. It should be wired directly to your 12 volt power source with its own fuse so that there is no chance it won't be active anytime the coach is occupied. On our Sunseeker, it is wired to the 12 volt bus and is powered when the coach is plugged in or the battery disconnect is switched on. It is powered when plugged in even if the battery disconnect is switched off.

Thumbs up Mystery switch solved

The switch controls an amber colored small rectangular light on the awning side of the coach and a small amber light by the rear ladder. I flipped it on when it was dark and the back door open and saw the light come on. EUREKA. I don't think they were factory installed as the other exterior lights are clearly labeled. Thanks for all the help and my apologies for the stupid question.
