Need ID for a few switches...vintage HR

Hello again! This forum is awesome, and has saved me countless hours and mucho dinero on several occasions. I recently acquired a 83 Holiday Rambler Aluma lite, 30' rv, and am still getting acquainted with it, since it has no manuals, etc.
I have a few toggle switches that I don't know what they turn on / off. If you can help with suggestions or ideas, it will be much appreciated.
The first group of switches are right beside the entry door on the passenger side of the coach. There is a single white switch near the top of the door...can't figure out what it controls.
There are 2 black lower toggle switches lower beside the door. One of them turns off the kwickee electric entry steps, and the other seems to cut off power to the 12 lights on the forward passenger side of the coach. Don't know why they would have a switch for that...or if it also cuts off something else. (more pics of other switch in next post)

The next 2 switches are located above the refrigerator. Unfortunately I did not get any closeups of them. There is a black toggle switch to the right of the red switch, and the black switch is for the water pump.
I have not been able to find what the red toggle switch is for.
Any ideas????????
Thanks for all the suggestions!

The switch near the door could be a switch for the porch light.

The lower ones near the door. One could be lights. If your coach has a solenoid that shuts off 12 volt coach power one could be for that. Or one could be to deenergize the steps so they don't go in and out everytime the door is open.

The red toggle switch above the refrigerator could be the propane hot water heater switch, it will light up red if the water heater is working, once the water is hot it goes off. If you have an electric hot water heater if you turn it on it stays red.

Thanks so much. I thought the white switch might be for the outdoor light, but the light doesn't come on in either position. Maybe a bad ground or something else.
The lower ones (one is for the steps motor), the other one does turn off a couple lights in the front passenger side...just not sure why, or what else it controls. Will check for a solenoid connection??
That is a great suggestion about the red switch, the hot water heater is the only appliance that we haven't lit yet (it is propane only). I will be sure to try it. Thanks again for all the help! Much appreciated!
