Question Mystery Switch?

Hello again. As you will soon tell I am new to RVing. I bought a 2006 Forest River RV Flagstaff 829BHSS. I have gone thru and figured out "some" of the camper. one thing that is bothering me is a mystery switch. This mystery switch is located on the wall by the bunks next to the bathroom door. I have flipped this switch several times but it seems to not do anything. Does this switch have a purpose or am i going crazy?

Maybe for the overhead lights? I have a couple wall switches connected to lights with thier own switches on the light. If the switch on the light is turned off the wall switch won't work.

If the switch is in the bathroom it also could be for the fan if you have one in the bathroom - my wall switch turns the light and fan on in the bathroom.

It could also be to an outside light as well

another way to figure out where it goes is to tone the wire with no voltage and see where it goes if you cant figure it out - if the bulb is burnt out you will have a hard time finding

If you have outside scare lights it could be for one of them.

My last trailer had one on each side. The switch for the curb side was under the cabinets in the kitchen and the one for the slide side was in the bathroom.

That's why it is called a "scare light" to scare off prowlers or wild animals that you may hear while laying there in bed at night. That"s my opinion, at least! Randy
