Unknown Switched Device

Okay, I give up. I thought I knew everything but this has me stumped. Maybe another Hawkins motorcoach owner will chime in.

Last year I bought a 93 Hawkins from an estate. Needless to say the previous owner was not very helpful in showing me the intricacies of this particular coach.

Here's my problem: Right above the refrigerator is a lone rocker switch, always on, momentary off. Any idea what this switch is for? Unknown where the wires go, no access without tearing something apart.

The reefer is a Norcold 3 way. Also according to the maintenance records there is a fridgemate fan installed somewhere but I haven't located it or the switch for it yet (unless it is the aforementioned rocker switch).

Thanks in advance, I will post results if it gets figured out.

There is a couple of links in this post that might get you the answers you need for your coach.
This page may have your answer also.
Here is a Owners Manual same section.
You may just have to trace out the wiring for switch, switch may pop out of paneling.

thanks 007, I actually have most of the HMC club info. Previous owner of my Hawkins was a very active member and officer of the club. (and I got most of his Hawkins literature and manuals with the MH).
I am only guessing that this switch has something to do with the reefer. The previous two owners made many modifications and this could be part of one.

I am the second owner of my Winnebago Adventurer & had an unknown switch above my microwave in the 12V breaker cabinet. Fortunately I was able to contact the original owner & found out that he had installed a cooling fan from a computer in the vent area behind the refrigerator.
