2005 Flagstaff 8528 BHSS

I purchased my 2005 Flagstaff a few months back and have not had any success figuring out what two switches in the Control Panel do. The attached drawing shows the Control Panel layout. The two unknown switches are at the top between the Slide In/Out and the Spot Lights.

I did speak with FR, they were not certain.

Any help identifying these is appreciated,
Thanks, Don

Could be, I am heading to the camper in a couple weeks to winterize it so I plan to do some more testing. I'll post what I find, thanks for the feedback.

Indoor step light? Outdoor step light?

Thanks for the feedback. That is something specific I will look for. May not have noticed since the camper is parked with a deck built covering the steps. But that is something I will look for.

Step lights would be my guess too. My panel in my 8528IKWS is different.

I am heading up to winterize it next week, so I'll be testing it then. I will post what I find, but think you are probably correct.
Thanks for the feedback.

The panel in my 2006 8528BHSS is identical but with the two switches missing so they are either an optional extra from the factory or something the previous owner added.
One may be a electric hot water element switch.

I believe these were for the artic package.
My 8528bhss 2005 had the Arctic pak.

I think you are correct, after getting back and doing a little more research can not find anything else they would be. When I winterized it I did turn each on for a few minutes and the only thing that happened, the switch lit up red.
Thank you for the feed back and happy to discover what they are. To bad they aren't labeled by the manufacture....
again, thank you, Don

If it had a red light then I'm almost certain they would be for the Arctic pak.

The only other lighted switch was for the water heater.
