switch for solar battery maintainer?

Where all the switches for the awning,water heater etc. is by the door in my 23 RBS is a double switch panel for solar, one switch for the 10 watt maintainer and another for an eventual rooftop or portable panel. The switch on the left iis just a black switch while the one on the right is a red lighted switch. Anyone know which one is for the battery maintainer?

On my glacier peak, the switch is marked "solar". The blank ones are unmarked.

test it by hooking a voltmeter to the battery(s), and see if the voltage increases.

I finally just solved this one myself. The left unmarked black switch is for the 10 watt battery maintainer. The right red lit switch with 'solar' beside it is for the water tank heater.

Bad day I guess at ORV for the electrician or panel maker. I'd pull them and reverse them.

Yeh. I thought about doing that for a couple of minutes. Then realized that the light on the red lit switch would probably burn up all the juice that the little 10W solar panel puts out, so I decided to leave it alone. I'll just relabel the switches.
