Anyone know what this switch with the battery icon is for ? It's on the dash of my 99 Anthem ?

More than likely, it's a battery boost. Press it if your engine batteries are dead and it will bring in the house batteries.

Battery Switch on the dash of an Anthem

I have an '01 Anthem and the battery switch on the dash allows the use of the coach batteries to be connected along with the chassis battery to start the engine when it would otherwise not be possible due to a low chassis battery. I have had to do that when my coach had not been started for some time and the chassis battery was not topped up. It is a way of saving your bacon when you have a weak or low chassis battery..

In some cases the switch and boost can be used in a reverse order as well if the coach batteries are too low to start the generator on their own.
