Mystery switch in 8280WS

Does anyone know what the flat switch on the underside of the cabinet above the sink operates? It is the only flat switch that I've found, so it must be something special.

Thanks in advance.

My old camper had a switch at the kit sink that was installed in front of the switch for the lights on the tall part of the ceiling. Try cutting all the lights on then flip the mystery switch off to see if affects any of them.

On our 8280WS, it's a 120V switch for the overhead fan/light.

Ditto on the fan. Mine has three 12v switches under the cabinet as well. I can't figure out what the third one does...

Thanks guys. I guess I didn't notice the fan turning off when I tried the switch. Lots to get used to before the first trip. I plan to spend a week in Galveston at the end of December, shake-down cruise.

I bought one of these to mark the switches and valves in the trailer.

The switch provides power to the fan but the light and fan still operate with the pull chains and they might but both set to off.

It's one of those "what the heck were they thinking" items. It's not too convenient from the doorway.
