Can't figure out this switch

I have a 1998 Jamboree GT 31ft that I purchased last year. I know when I bought it I thought I went through everything but of course there is one switch that I can not figure out. There is a on/off rocker switch on the drivers door right above the the controls for the power mirrors. Does anyone know what this on/off switch controls?


Thanks,
Mike

It could be the side mirror defrosters.

Could be for heated mirrors.

Or is it just a rocker so the controls will work for the left mirror or the right mirror?

Is there a light on it ? Usually the mirror defrosters switch will illuminate when on.

I didn't think about heated mirrors. There is no light on it and it is not for the left/right selection of the mirrors. This rig was fully loaded from the factory so it could be anything. It does look like all the other on/off switches for the lights in the rig so I am pretty sure Fleetwood added it and was not from Ford. I am at work so pics will have to come tomorrow.

Putting my money on heated mirrors switch. That's how my MH is. I like wa8yxm's statement. Usually true but not 100% of the time.
