Unknown on/off switch

Not to sound stupid, but there is a switch above our sink in our rockwood roo that is an on/off switch that we have no idea what it does. The switch is located in the middle of the cabinets. We can't find anything in the owners manual about it and since we bought it through rv wholesalers we didn't get the walkthrough. Any help would be appreciated.

There is never a stupid question... thats what everyone is here for.

Can you describe the switch in much more detail? i.e. what color, what type of switch, (rocker, toggle, etc.) anything written on it, is there a lamp on it as well?

It is a black rocker switch. About Eye Height. I will have to check to see if it is for the front outside light by the hitch. I figured it was for an outside light on the side of the trailer, but since there is not a light there it didn't make sense. Could definately be for that front light.

How about for the porch light or a scare light?

Probably it's turning the lights on and off in your neighbors rig...

While most are lit red switches, is it possibly for the electric portion of the water heater?

It could be the switch for the electric tank heater pads if your trailer came with that option. My water heater switch is labeled.
