Interior Switch on Electric Switch Panel

Can anyone tell me what the 'Interior' switch does on the main switch panel. So far it has done nothing when I have switched it on or off.

Probably a dumb question but the documentation is sub optimal that came with it.

Thanks.

Year and model of your Roo?

a picture of the switch panel might be better to get a correct resolution

does the switch have "interior" next to it or anything else like a red light too?

I am thinking it is for the Gas side of the hot water heater but I could be wrong

yep, need a better description or pics.
not sure what you mean by main switch panel.

do you mean the breaker/fuse panel?

or do you mean the monitor panel?

There was a cartoon some years ago about a guy flipping a wall switch that he had no idea what it did; while in the background the neighbor's garage door was opening and closing; smashing the neighbor's car.

I have one switch next to the main door that was unmarked and did no apparent good till I noticed I had "foot lights" one night where I did not have them before. Mystery solved (for me).

If it is a light switch on your control panel, I would check all the ceiling lights and change the position of the switch on them as they can be shut off on the light themself. That happened to us as well.

On our 2012 Roo 233s, the "interior" switch controls one light in the kitchen area. Which is a big change since in our previous campers, the interior switch turned on almost all the lights at the same time.

The interior light switch on my 2012 233S controls the light above the sink. I can turn it on then turn it on and off with the switch on the control panel.

That was it! Thanks so much! So I guess you leave it on and turn it off when you leave, and then use it to light up the interior when you return. Very handy.

Clearly you're a person of few words.

Glad you found out. But please do share, what was it ? Model ?

You had many suggestions and I have no clue which one 'was it'....
