Mysterious switch

I have a 2009 Cherokee 39L park model. I had another thread on here, but it is apparently too old, and I cant reply to it. Anyway, I have a switch, by the sink, that doesn't do anything. I thought it might be for the A/C, but it isn't.The switch doesn't have anything to do with the A/C as it works with the switch on or off. Here is a pic of the switch. It is the one on the far right. I also noticed today, that I have a plug up by the awning. I need a ladder to get to it, but I wonder if it is for a power awning(which I don't have) and the switch is for that. I will test it when I take my ladder up to the trailer.

Would it be an interior switch for the outlet? That way the folks that hang the patio lights from the edge of the awning, you could turn them on and off without getting a ladder or hanging out the front door.

If you are referring to the white rocker switch next to that white 120v plug, it just may be the outside porch light. Randy

It doesn't operate any of the lights. I think it is for the outside plug that is up by the awning. Maybe for a power awning, or as Eindog thinks to operate lights on the awning from the switch. I will check it, when I get my ladder. Thanks, NorminN.B.

We once had a camper with a tube lite built into the awning roller. That light had a springy cord that stowed in a channel on the roller. When the awning was deployed, the cord could be pulled out and plugged into a receptacle near the roof line (similar to where the outlet in the second link is located). Inside the camper was a switch similar to what you show in the first link. I'm not saying that is what its for, but it is VERY similar to what we had.

The mysterious switch operates the plug that is just under the awning. Must be for patio lights or for a power awning, which I don't have.

It's definitely for the outlet up under the awning at the rear of trailer.

LOL???? Try stringing your lights the first time - getting an extension cord - plug it in and NOTHING !!!! You get to say bad words...then later, your better half flicks the switch thinking it controls the light over the sink and the awning lights come on.
