Want to know the function of switch

In January my wife and I purchased a 2011 Wildcat Sterling 29MK to replace an aging 1988 Alpenlite 5th wheel. The Alpenlite never gave us any issues in the many years we owned it but this unit has been a challenge and it is obvious we purchased someone else's problems as I have been busy with repairs and quality issues since we bought.
Anyway, there is a switch in the control panel area marked AUTO and LOW that I do not know what it does. Switch is to the right of the switch for EXTENDING and RETRACTING the slides. Can anyone please tell me its function?

could that be extending and retracting your stabilizers?

Stabilizers are auto leveling controlled by its own panel in the basement.

Does your thermostat have a FAN setting with HI, LO, AU options? If not, this MIGHT be a fan speed switch although I've never seen one like it.

Try this thread link below from 2012, as it explains it goes to your tankless water heater:
