1989 Pace Arrow: What is this and What is that..

I'm a newbie and I have tons of questions before I move into my newly acquired 1989 Pace Arrow, full time. I got so lucky..20,000 miles and a generator with 100 hours on it. The unfortunate part is water damage but I'm working on that.
Everything works pretty good, some minor problems like some of the 12 volt lights don't work. I have a mechanic working on helping me with that. I will know more on Monday.
For now, here's some questions:

There is a switch on the front right cabinet in front of the kitchen sink..
What does it go to?
It's not the water pump, it MIGHT be the light over the kitchen window (since the light doesn't work yet I can't tell since it's one of the 12 volts offline right now),
It's not a garbage disposal o.0

Next question: there is a switch under the bathroom sink. Unfortunately it looks like it was added by someone, not a stock item.
It's not the switch on the front cabinet, that one belongs to the water pump.

That's it for now.
I can add a video or images if it's needed.
Thanks for any help anyone may have.
Ki

Howdy and welcome to iRV2. Congrats on the Pace! As for the kitchen switch; if it's not a light switch, it could be for the electric element on your water heater. Do you know whether your water heater is gas and electric? Some pics might help.

As for the one in the bath, if it was added after market there's no telling what it's for. Can you trace the wire? Good luck to you.

My '87 Pace has 2 switches in the bathroom, one for the water pump, and the other for the lights over the medicine cabinet. There are 3 switches on my stove hood; Hood light, water pump, and water heater. Yours should be similar, maybe. Eddie Elk.

On our 82 we only have one switch @ the Kitchen sink about knee high and that is for the waterpump. They used to have a mixer or other kitchen appliance mounted on the counter could that be what the which is for? We have 2 in the bathroom one is for the fartfan and the other is for the lights. The 2 switchs on the fan above the stove is for lights and fan speed.
Yes send some pictures inside and out we all like pictures.
One last thing is to check to be sure of your tires date stamped in the rubber if going on or over 7 years I would start looking for tires. That is what most of us do anyway.
Welcome and don't forget to check out the vintage section on this site.

The switch under the bath sink is an add on, looks like 120v, and I would guess it is for a heating element add to the water heater. As suggested, follow the wires on the back of it. One set may go to the outlet in the rear under the cabinet. The one under below the kitchen sink is a 12v switch, again follow the wires.

Next question: there is a switch under the bathroom sink.
If you leave the light under the storage cabinet to the left of the entry door 'ON', you can turn it 'OFF' with the switch at the door.

The switch under the counter in bath is likely to the external 'hotshot' water heater add on.

One could inspect the water heater itself for a 120vac element, so as to discount or verify some of these switches. We once had a 87 PA once, but it's been awhile and don't think it was exactly the same, anyway. Still, I'd go with water pump in two locations and a 120vac electric element of sorts for the add-on switch, as has been suggested.

Your right, we've figured out the first photo, still working on the one under the bath sink and the kitchen sink.

I'm happy to look you up if we're ever in your area.
Thanks again.

Thank you everyone!

Such a huge community of wonderful people with lots of help!
We have figured out all switches except the under the bathroom sink.
I'm not that worried about that one right now.
The one in the counter in front of the kitchen sink was for a light over the sink.
We've removed the light and added a dedicated heavy duty 12volt appliance outlet. The switch is attached to it for now as a shut down method but we're probably going to revert the switch to a vent fan for the refrigerator.

I should start posting some pics soon. We've been doing alot of small upgrades and rebuilds like flooring, inset USB wall outlets, and adding running lights.. Lots of stuff.

Right now I'm looking for a 'gravity water fill hatch with city cable hookup included'. The OD measurements are 6 3/4" x 8 1/2".
Any ideas where to find this discontinued, larger than currently available item?

Replacement Burner

Kismoore seems like you have all the answers you need for your switches. Let me pass something on to you for possible future reference. We've had our 89 34ft Pace for 23 years and I have learned a lot of things about it. Last fall the burner on our furnace got so rusted out that it would longer work. The furnace is an Atwood Hydro Flame 8535-11. Atwood quit making the replacement burner for that furnace and it seemed they wanted you to buy a new furnace. My RV man told me that he thought the burner for the new furnace would fit my old one so we bought one and he installed it and it works perfect. If you ever get into the situation where your burner is rusted out you may want to try that and save yourself some $$.
