Toddupton,
The water heater switch is located in the control panel right next to the door so I don't think it is that.

I just called an EVO dealer in north Texas and he couldn't tell me over the phone and said I would have to come in for them to trace it.

I thought it might be for heat tape in the underbelly, it has the climate "B" package, but the dealer told me that the heat tape should come on with the furnace so it probably isn't that either.

Still searching.....

Thank You

John & Theresa

The previous owner may have added the switch to control the electric element of the water heater. The switch is more convenient than going outside or to the trailer's circuit breaker box. Many of us have done that. If the water heater is not hot, turn it off at the water heater or breaker and turn the switch on. If you don't get the same effect on your lights, you'll know what it's for.

The mystery is finally solved. I emailed FR and was informed that it is for the "tank heating pads". It is supposed to turn on when temp drops below 42 and turns off when temp goes above 62. The rep told me it is part of my "Climate-B" pkg which I assume is another name for the Arctic Pkg.
