Maybe grab a picture of the switch panels which you don't know what they do. I'll compare with mine.

I also have the mystery switch next to the stove, but no unknown switch in the bathroom. I originally thought this switch sent power to the fuel station (which I don't have.) So is it maybe the switch for my heated tanks?

What I meant was that in a car and other machines the switch or switches are in traditional, industry standard, locations. With camper trailer's there are no standards. I can understand that each platform is unique and in some ways custom to that day of manufacture. It seems to me that at minimum an electrical schematic should be posted / included on the platform being created. and given the electrical complexities of modern trailers like my 380 Amp a customer should not have to reverse engineer the system to try and figure out where that weird switch goes to.
Back in the day of simple / basic circuitry I could understand that a schematic wasn't needed but now the time has come for the industry to "UPGRADE" even if it is a buck or two.....
What do you think?

I totally agree! The owners manual reads like a joke. Why not take the extra effort and do brand/ model specific instead of a general Foresr River owners manual.
