OP: You need to post year, make and model if you want help. Without that, nobody knows what we're looking at.

2017 Sierra 401FLX. I was hoping it was for the Hall light - which looks like it can only be controlled from the control panel.

Do you have a ceiling fan? It may be turned off at the chain. Or a vent fan in one of the roof vents like in the bathroom? The roof vent fans in my latest one don't operate until you open the vent.

There is a larger toggle switch just above, and that does control the living room ceiling fan.

The Power vents have their own controls and all work well. Thank you!

In most trailers there is a switch that controls a fixture that has yet another switch on it. I have one in my 5ver, right beside the entry door. Both the wall switch and the fixture switch must be on.

It can drive you nuts, sometimes.

Radio is right. Most times those switches can turn on something like over the bed reading lights or an over dinette light but if the light fixture has a switch on it and it is off, the wall switch does nothing.

Try this

Turn ALL 12V controlled stuff on and than shut the mystery switch. See what happens.

Confused? What if I just disconnect the battery (how do?) - which I would want to do soon anyway?
