There is a speaker switch located in the overhead cabinet where the inverter panel and holding tank monitor is.

This is a small white switch identical to the step switch and LP switch.

The only thing I see that it does, is that it silences the speakers used with the Sony surround sound system.

I see no purpose for this switch.

Does anyone know why it's there and if it has another purpose?

I appreciate the switch when the kids want to watch a movie in the bedroom while the wife and I can watch something else in the living area and not having to listen to the surround sound.

Does anyone else have any situations where they use this switch?

Darn!! I was thinking the switch had something to do with Dirk's door awning falling off!

I don't follow you. The switch has no effect on the rear speakers and does the same thing as turning the volume control all the way down.

Unless I am doing something wrong, when I turn the volumn all the way down on the surround sound system, no sound comes out of the TV. I will double check that operation next trip.

My door awning is still on so hopefully they are not connected.
