Red switch in Bath

Red Toggle switch in Bath toilet enclouser next to vent fan switch. I guess it has something to do with the wet tanks but question how it works. I don't see anything that looks like heating blankets aroound the tanks. 2000 Allegro Bus 35B

I had a red switch in my old motorhome in the water closet that turned on the water pump.

Not the vent and not the pump. Wires goes down through the floor but I can't locate it in the bay directly under the wall. The wiring diagram does not show it but it must be factory because it is a molded double switch. One turns on the vent fan and the red one is a mystery.

Heater for the bays?
or if it is like some Foretravels, a power switch for the toilet or a lift pump from toilet into black tank. (toilet on street side and the black tank on the curb side.)
just throwing darts here

No the water heater switch is on the main panel. I did check to see but that is not it. I still think it may be a heat system of some sort I pulled the wires and confirmed that it is doing something shows about .5 amps when on.

It's the engine heater. In sub-freezing weather turn the switch on before going to bed and in the morning the engine will be warm and easy to start.

Our last RV had a block heater plugged into a basement compartment receptacle that the switch activated.
