an additional switch located above my water tank control panel

Hello all,
I have a 2009 Forest River Sierra. Above my water tank control panel (and water pump and water heater) there is another, separate switch. Does anyone know what this switch is for? Thank you.

Jesse

Might be for lights under counter or toe kick or lights in cabin if you turn it on and nothing happens could have light off at fixture.

OneTon,
All of the lights are working. I'm pretty sure it serves some other function.......what that function is though I have no idea.

Could it be the switch for the receptacle that the awning lights would plug into?

Mine has switches for the rope lights that are under the cabinets and in the bed room head board and I v'e heard that the rope lights burn out rather quickly I know that if my trailer were older and the lights were burn't out you would be hard pressed to find them and the switches are wall mounted. so they are in plain view but the rope lights are well hidden. I know that I already have some of the little bulbs burn't out due to the fact that there is gaps in the light comming from them so they do bun out. If you have the outside scare lights also they tend to put the switches in the wierdest places and some people have a hard time finding them.

Thanks Folks,
I figured it out.....it's for the automatic overhead vent and fan in my kitchen/dining room/living area. I'm glad I figured that out before going to bed, otherwise I'd be staying awake trying to figure it out. That vent/fan has an individual on/off switch as well as a fan speed control knob mounted inside of it on the ceiling......just had to set these to their correct settings and that mysterious white switch started to open the vent and turn on the fan =)
