What is the button for in this 2015....

Hello,

We are now the proud owners of a Coachman Clipper 2015 16rbd. We are trying to figure out what the metal button is for in the door frame of the bathroom? It is toward the bottom on the right? It pushes in and out but we have no idea what it does. The dealership did not know either. We can't find it in the books. Does anyone know what it is for? Also, there are no bunk end privacy curtains we notices.... what do people put up for privacy since it is a bunk end, there really isn't a "stud" to put a nail/screw in?

Thank you!

DO NOT PUSH IT. No really, is there a latch that retracts with the button pushed?

We kept pushing it can cannot figure it out lol It's actually in the bathroom door jam and IS on the side that the hinges are on. I though it may have something to do with the light or lock if the door closes (as the button would push in when the door closes). We did not have camper plugged into anything, lights were on. As we pushed the buttom we never lost light so i'm guessing it has nothing to do with the battery? I am sure we were running off battery as the outlets were not working but the lights inside and the radio was working. I will take a pic of it when I get home and post it. It's a larger button, almost resembles an EX-large ear plug (if one existed).

A picture will help. I have noticed my lights flickering off and on..... so how many times have you pushed it? Turbs, any effects at your house?

Thank you!
only thing i can guess is that your hybrid is an entry level hybrid and they don't come with them.
many entry level trailers don't come with features that others do, like tv hookups. many times, items that are standard in other trailer lines, are optional or not even available.

but this is the first hybrid line that i've heard of, that doesn't come with privacy curtains.

We JUST brought it home. We pushed that button quite a few times at the dealership walkthrough (when they show you how everything works.. but then things don't work like they should.... like one side of our awning doesn't click shut so their fix was to give us two velcro holders to wrap around the poles... still confused about that, wondering if we push for a new pole since it is brand new/2015)... then we we got home and started cleaning all the metal chips and sawdust.. started pushing it again. I will post pics in a few hours..


Sorry for the cruddy photo, but I do have this pic in my phone of one of the bunkends with NO CURTAINS!... ironically this side is the Queen bed side, but the other side is only a full/double I guess. I haven't measured or tried to fit sheets on either side yet. When we start packing for camping next weekend I will, but during the walk through I asked bed sizes.

--- I just figured we overlooked the privacy curtains. But no, there are none. We do have a cable hook up and antenna on the top of the camper I guess.. it's a Forest River Coachman Clipper 16RBD. I am guessing it's lower-end. But not sure. I know we couldn't afford the Jayco version brand new (like the x17z or something).

If you turn the lights off and push the button will the bathroom light come on? Only thing I can think of that a switch in that location would be for.
I'd push for a new awning pole.
