You're probably referring to your ICC flash which on the OP's coach appears to be the switch immediately to the right of #3 according to the Gulfstream manual.

I'm going to say probably a exhaust brake number one, I domelight is probably number two and a fog light is probably number three here again I'm just guessing that those look like symbols similar to what I have.

Well again, according to the Gulfstream manual, #1 is almost certainly "Defroster 2 speed" as it is the exact symbol pictured in the manual.

#2 according to the Gulfstream manual appears to be one of two "Map Light" and #3 appears to be either "Fog Light" or "Driving Light"

The most direct way to determine what the switches do is to try them. Sometimes the ignition must be on. From my Freightliner experience I can offer that #2 is for interior lights and #3 is for fog lights.

If you look at the PDF posted by TRAILERKING, it looks like #3 is REAR Fog lights, the symbol is flipped from the original. I don't understand why you don't turn the key and try the switches out? A quick walk around will expose the function of those switches. I don't think it will blow up with any of those switches flipped. The only way to know if it's an exhaust brake would be to drive it, unless you've got a dash light telling when it's on.

Thank you everybody for the help! I think Amanda found the exact symbol in her manual.

#3 is facing the wrong direction for rear fog light(s). Additionally, rear fog lights are usually European spec'd and I personally have never observed rear fog lights on an American motorhome in which the manufacturer has installed a rear fog light. Some European cars have rear fog lights. I had a rear fog light on Audis I've owned ...one red lamp with the intensity of a brake light on the left side is what is usually specified.

#3 would in all likelihood be for front fog lights.

Why would the PDF that Trailerking be more accurate than the one I posted which is directly from the Gulfstream owner's manual? Trailerking's is a generic chart. The OP has a Gulfstream so wouldn't the Gulfstream manual be the more accurate of the two?

I'm finished here.

Oh good, I'm glad it's solved then, DawnandChris. If you'd like me to send you the manual in an email attachment, if you don't already have it, let me know.

edit: Got your PM ...the manual is on its way.

Sorry Harry, i wasn't trying to ruffle feathers, just putting in my 2. According to your Gulf Stream page, a foglight symbol is quite different than what DawnAndChris posted. I have a Gulf Stream and some of the labels on my dash don't match my manual illustrations. Trial and error taught me what they mean and do.

My apologies also, Bob. I just got a bit frustrated. Also, I didn't notice that you have a Gulfstream. Had I been observant, I would have seen that and deferred to your advice. Yes, I did notice that even the DawnandChris' didn't match up with the manual either. Sorry about that.
