Question Electrical switch help newbie

We recently bought our first motorhome. 2003 Coachmen Leprechaun. When you enter there are 3 light switches on wall. 1st switch is for the 2 ceiling lights in the cabin, the middle switch is for light outside, what is the 3rd switch for? we tried everything and cannot figure it out. Any help would help. Thanks in advance
Also, we have a trimark lock with deadblot on entry door. The motorhome came with no keys with it. After disassembling, the only numbers inside the unit were 28U and 34U. any idea on home to get replacement keys. I can not find anything on internet that corresponds with trimark and these code numbers. thanks again in advance for any help

Possibly for LED lighting on the awning?

Just a guess, but the third switch may be the steps auto/out switch. It is usually by the door.

May be indirect lighting above cabinet. Won’t be able to see it in daytime.

Sometimes there is an amber light in the step area. Kind of a night light and not visible in daylight.

Our Leprechaun is much newer than yours, but the 3rd switch on ours controls some decorative LED's on the outside front of the overhang. Purely decorative or maybe to help you find your unit in the dark.

Switch

The 3rd switch on our 2019 Leprechaun is for the rear outside storage compartment on driver side.

Just have to love the designers, engineers and manufacturers who all signed off on not labeling things! How stupid is that?
And rarely do they even give a hint what they are in their manual and online manuals.
No wonder things get wired up wrong.

Thank you everyone. The switch is for all the storage compartments. If you forget and leave a light on in storage, this switch will turn them all off.
