The switch above the driver might be to disconnect batteries for storage. The kill switch in the engine compartment might 'kill' the engine. Since a diesel doesn't have ignition like a gas engine, it often has a solenoid to cut off fuel flow to stop it. Just guessing, you might want to read owner's manuals to see if they are described.

Yep, I'm betting the first switch is for your house batteries and what you're describing in the engine compartment sounds exactly like my chassis battery cut off switch. Mine is a large round unit which operates like a "dial" where the pointer is rotated up for connected and down for disconnected.

You should ask this from other Newmar owners. Scroll down this page to "Forum Jump" then Newmar Owners.. someone will have a rig just like yours.
