Question about light switch

We are the new owners of a 2008 Wildcat 30 LSBS. I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I'm not sure where it belongs. We are having a problem figuring out what some of the light switches operate. To the left of the bathroom door are two switches. One operates the bathroom light. We cannot figure out for the life of us what the other switch operates. We have tried turning on the hall and bedroom lights and using this to turn them off, but it does not work. Does anyone have any idea what this other switch is for?

We have the same issue with the 3 switches by the front door. One operate the outside light, one the main inside lights, but we can't figure out the 3rd switch.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Some switches may be for optional goodies that your camper doesn't have.

My bath switches are wired in series when 1 is on, the overhead and fan work. It has to be on though, for leds over vanities to work. Maybe you have the same type of thing going

Do you have any "night lights"? We have a small LED lamp in the bathroom and one in the hallway by the interior steps controlled by one switch. We also have a LED strip under our kitchen island that is controlled by the switch by the entry door. This is on a 33IK, so it may be different.

the third switch at the door could be to turn off the stars so they stay down when you are parked or basement lights.

My 02 door switches is 1-outside yellow light 2-outside white light. you may have one for step light. 3- living ceiling lights( they must be manually turned on for the switch to work.

Bath switches 1 bathroom light, 2 hall ceiling light. same thing, they must be manually turned on for switch to work.

Thank you!

I think we have figured out that the switch by the bathroom operates the fan if open and the one by the door is an outside light. Thanks for all the help!
