Anyone have any idea what this is for?

I have a 2017 F/R Sunseeker 2250 SLE. There is a "thing" for lack of a better description on the right side of the center dash. I've talked to different RV shops and Ford themselves and no one seems to have any idea what this is for. it is a small, round chrome bezeled with a hard black plastic piece in the center of it. It has wires on the back of it that vanish into the wiring under the dash. It has a Jensen in dash stereo, DVD, navigation unit installed. I've looked in the instructions for that as well.
Sorry, for some reason the image was rotated when I posted it.

It is a plug for the aux input on the OEM Ford radio which you do not have.

It also doubles as an ejection seat button when your navigator sends you down a dead end dirt road.

I was beginning to wonder where Terry got to.

I like to refer to those as "Manager Buttons".

What does a Manager do?


Absolutely nothing useful!


(Apologies to all good managers out there - I know there are a lot of you! B^)

That would explain it. Amazing how the people at Ford have never seen anything like that. Talk about lack of product knowledge. I realize it is a motorhome chassis but, you would think that a regular van chassis cab equipped with a Ford radio would have the same equipment. Well, that solved the mystery of what it is. Thanks for your help.

Mine is a button that activate the backup camera even in the drive position.

So you're saying, being courious Terry pushed that button? Being the gentleman you are, we all know you would never push the navigator's buttons just for spite.
