2007 Rockwood 8244S Mystery light switch

I just bought this used fifth wheel. It is in great shape except for there is one light switch (the middle in a group of three) in the galley when you enter the camper. The left switch gets the interior lights, the middle gets ???, and the right gets the outside stair nightlight.

Anybody have any idea what this mystery switch operates? Everything else seems to be working...

Look for small lights close to the floor near the door or in kitchen area.

In addition to a "porch" light most campers have a "scare" light mounted on the door side and up high near the front.

It could also be a light above your city water/sewer hose hook up on other side of trailer. Let us know when you find out.

Good ideas guys. Now I have some places to look. I'll wait until it gets dark tonight and check it out. Thanks for the replies!

No luck. I looked for some low lying interior lights and found nothing. Looked underneath the camper and found nothing. I had the switch on the other night and didnt see anything so whatever it is, it is out.

I used to be an electrical contractor so this is really bugging me.

We are going to go on our first trip this weekend so I'll be investigating all weekend.

Storage compartment lights, maybe? (The compartment lights usually have a glowing switch to remind you that you left them on, but it's worth a shot.)
