Interior Light Switch on Wall Panel

I have a 2104S but I think they should all work the same way. On the panel there is a rocker switch labeled interior lights. It only operates the sink light which doesn't make sense. I'm thinking should be a master switch for all interior light? Flip it and you know you've got everything turned off before hitting the road, right?

As a side note, this isn't the only thing I've found wired wrong on this little RV. I had to rewire the AC unit to the wall thermostat. From the factory there was no low fan speed and the operation of the thermostat was just screwy. At one position, just the compressor would run.

I believe the light is set up like that as an entry light so you don't have to search in a dark trailer for a light upon entering. My Flagstaff 21 FBRS is set up the same way.

on my 2011 Greywolf 26 rl that switch turns ALL the ceiling lights in the living-cooking area IF they are turned on at the light then the switch is turned off. That switch will only turn on or off if the lights themselves are turned ON to start with.

Thanks, that makes sense. I'll have it checked out when I bring it in Tue.

Yup, in mine it only operates 2 of the double fixtures over the walkway in the kitchen/living room area (if those fixtures are themselves on). Before I switched to LEDs I estimated with every light on (including storage and outside) I would draw about 35 amps, so maybe around 30 just inside. Way too much for one little switch unless it operated a relay - which would use more energy when boondocking. So I can understand why they wouldn't wire everything to a master switch. Wouldn't be a problem now in mine, at about 3.5 amps for everything.
