What is the voltage to the switch and the color of the wires?

No, there is no slide. This is a 2015 Coachman Clipper RBD. There is a Queen tent-end behind the bathroom (which is where this button is, inside the door jam). The other end has a full/double tent end.

try running the furnace then opening the door. see if it is tied into the furnace to as a safety to prevent the door from being left open in front of the air return

Dumb question here... can I run the furnace off the electric "shore" power (is that what you call it? when you plug it in to the outlet on the outside of your house)? Or do I need to turn on the gass and then turn on the furnace? Figuring out how to use the furnace was the last thing on my mind until now?!

furnaces are typcially 12v and gas. set the thermostat for a higher temp then it is currently set it to heat. have the gas turned on and at least the battery connected. having shore power wouldnt hurt

Does the door have to be closed to fold in the tent end, as this could be a safety switch to turn off the lights (if any) in the tent end. I used to have a TrailManor trailer (Mtnguy did too), that had a similar plunger switch that killed power to the lights so you couldn't fold it down with the lights on?

If the bathroom door has no bearing on the tent end, then my next guess is it being in the bathroom, that maybe it is a secondary switch to the bath fan. Don't know why there would be one, but you can see if the bathroom vent fan is affected by the opening/closing of the door. Maybe the vent fan sucks in the tent ends with the bathroom door open....or possibly produces vacuum pressure that makes the entrance door hard to open.

P.S. This reminds me of something you may not want to find out the hard way. If you have the bathroom vent fan running, and flush the toilet....... you may find out just how fast/much air those fans move , as it will suck the odor up right out of your black tank. Most people only make this mistake once (or twice in my case).

That button is a safety shut off to the ignitor in the furnace. When you open the bathroom door it opens and blocks the heater. Without that safety switch the furnace wouldn't shut off & could catch that door on fire. Do NOT take out that switch.
