Mystery switch

I just bought a 2017 wolf pup 18to . There are 3 switches just inside the door on the left hand side of the outer upper cabinet . One switch is for my slide , one for my exterior porch light / scare light but the third switch has me stumped ??? Any help would be appreciated ! I have pulled the switch and it is hooked up to something !

Turn an overhead light on, then see if switch will turn it off

Do you have ground lighting or tank heaters? Could it also be for the hotwater heater.

Check for a light at your steps. Hard to see in the daylight.

Look at the menu on the tv set.On the remote you might have a source button. If not use menu. There should be an option for source. On mine it is HDMI for the DVD player.

I tried that but it changes the input and I'm useing only the coax that is wired in the camper . The salesman said all I had to do was turn off the power to the antenna and the built in DVD player would play through the coax but it not having any luck

I don't think it works that way. Do you not have the red/yellow/white avi plugs?

honestly im really not sure how that would work. if they put the dvd player in it i imagine it should work somehow. did you try different channels on the tv like 3 or 4?

ya that will not be fun. my av connectors are in the roof right next to my coax outlet. i imagine if you pull the radio there will be unused connectors behind it that you need to hook to.

Thank you, I also was wondering what that switch was. It will get labled now as motion detecter. I was looking for a battery disconnect switch on our 18to but haven't found one, does anyone know if they come with one or is that a dealer add on?? New to the site and travel trailers, always had a tent trailer
