Overdrive switch

There is a rocker switch on the dashboard of my 08 Winnebago Sightseer (Workhorse chassis) that is labeled overdrive. It is horizontally mounted and has three positions but the positions aren't labeled. The workhorse manual discusses this switch but refers to it mounted in a vertical manner saying that top is 4th gear middle is 5th gear and bottom is 6th gear. These are the maximum gear allowed when selected. My question is which is top and which is bottom when the switch is mounted sideways as in a Winnebago. I was trying to figure it out by experimenting while driving but DW put a stop to that.

You have a 3 position rocker switch because you have a 6 speed tranny. As you described, the "middle" position is 5th gear. The best way to determine which position is 4th gear and which position is 6th gear is to switch it all the way in either direction (just not middle). When you have switched to the 4th gear position, a light will illuminate on the dash showing "O/D OFF". If the dash light is absent, you are in 6th gear. No driving is required to try this, but you "may" have to have the engine running, however it is not necessary to select a gear using the shifter, because the OD switch will light the dash light whenever you have "prevented" the use of 5th and 6th gears.
