1999 Allegro Bay

We bought a new to us 1999 one owner garage kept 26000 mile Allegro Bay.
Made a few minor small repars and put about 200 miles on it so far. Getting it ready for the summer as soon as the kids get out of school we are headed to Nashville TN for Good Guys car show. There is a metal toggle switch on the dash that is unlabeled. It goes to a small vaccum canister under the hood.
I can't figure out it's purpose. It operates only in the run psoition which I can hear it click when activated. Tiffin sprayed additional insulating foam on the dash so I can't trace all the vaccum lines without removing all this. I contaced Tiffin and because of it's age no one had any idea why it was there. Any ideas? Also the dash heater will not get very hot and the engine runs very cool is the normal. I should of mentioned this earlier it is on a Ford chassis V10. Thanks in advance.

Mike

Any way you could trace the former owner, perhaps through the dealer? First hand info is always best.

So much for that idea. The heater issue sounds lile it might be a thermostat stuck open or removed for some reason. Look closely at the bolts that hold it in place to see if it might have been removed.
