Forest river probably drilled a hole in the wrong place and covered it with a switch

I have an unmarked switch that is for the water heater, but not the electric portion. There is a switch on the heater itself for that. Mine control the the propane side of the water heater??

Hello. I have the same switch mounted in the same location on our 2011 8281ss 5th wheel. Mine controlls the ceiling fan.

We have the same switch in our 2010 8280SS. Ours is white and looks like it doesn't belong in a trailer. I think it is the electric control for the water heater. There is another rocker switch in our trailer under the cabinets near our entry door and it controls the light on the ceiling behind the air Vent. In order to reach both the light and the Vent, you need to have a step ladder or stool handy. Turn the light on and leave it on. The black rocker switch under the cabinet controls. it.
