What's the little red light for?

I just purchased a 29 ft 2006 Surfside class A made by National, and there is a little red light mounted on the dash just above and to the right of the speedometer. It looks like it may have been factory mounted by National, but not sure. It may have been mounted by previous owner but that must have been a lot of work. Too bad they didn't label it because no one can tell me what it is for.
Any ideas??

Our RoadMaster BrakeMaster has a wired in dash light that lets me know the brake on the toad is activated. I also have a red light that tells me if the solar panel is working or not.

I recently bought a '99 Dolphin and have a tiny red light with a tiny toggle switch on the dash. I also have a tiny red light on the outside, just left of the entrance door..... nether light up. I really have to assume this is for the factory solar panel?

Anyone know how to troubleshoot these factory solar panels?
