In my trailer the "porch" light is the amber light, and the "scare" light is the led strip in the awning. Took some time to figure that out...

Battery disconect switch

My 2904SS has a similar switch to your "mystery" switch. Under the cabinet just above the sink is a light that can be controlled by the "mystery" switch or the switch on the light itself. Hope this solves your problem. On my trailer, you would not even notice the light unless you are looking for it.

iefman, I've attached a picture of my panel and the mystery switch above it. The panel looks the same (except for the hot switches), but I'm not sure what the one above it is for.
The switch over the panel operates the lights at the back of the awning that run along the trailer edge. mine are pretty blue and are very nice looking.

On my panel, under lights, the one marked interior does turn on some interior lights. The one marked Porch turns on the LCD lights under my awning. The other three switches (Step, Scare, Scare) are all blank

I think the best explanation is that it controls the amber outside light and its just burned out. The trailer is brand new so I wouldn't think it would be burned out, but that would explain it.

Yep, replaced the bulb and the light works. That switch is the amber outside light.
Who would have thought it was out on a brand new trailer.

but its odd they put the unmarked switch up there when there were 3 blank switches under the light section of the panel.

In any case, thanks for those who gave me suggestions on what it may be.

I have a 2013 2109S with the battery disconnect switch. I wonder what people use it for?
Do you use it and why?

Also if I'm running the refrigerator on propane could I use the disconnect switch then, or does the refrigerator even when running on propane need some electricity to control the temperature or something?
Thanks,
Alan

The refrigerator control needs 12V to run so, yes, it needs to be left on. As to what you would use it for, there are a number of little parasitic loads that will kill your batteries if left unattended for a few days.

We have these really bright (scare lights) on both sides of the trailer.... where you have blanks marked scare is where the controls for those lights are located...... my battery disconnect is outside in the propane tank area right next to the battery.

I use the driver side light to connect up at a campground if we arrive after dark; great light for that use..... it's located in between the two slides right over all my connections....
