12V switches?

I have a 2016 Wildcat maxx 312bhx, there's these 2 12v switches as you walk in. Does anybody know what they are for? I tried tracing them but lose them behind the stove and have no clue where to go from there. Click image for larger version

The picture appears that they are lighted when they are on, indicating they control something that you can't see when it is on. Maybe tank heaters?

Good luck - maybe somebody with the same model Wildcat can answer your question.

I have those same 2 switches in my Wildcat Maxx 28RKX. My switches control the tank heaters which keep the fresh water and black/gray tanks from freezing in cold weather.

Put labels on the switches for the benefit of the next owner.

Yes, from camping world. I didn't notice them with all the excitement of my first fifth wheel and they didn't go over them in the walk through. Also, on top of that there was few things broke or missing I had to make sure they knew about.
