Alpenlite 5th wheel security switch

I'm the proud owner of a new (to me) 2005 Alpenlite Oakmont 30RL. No owners manuals came with the trailer, and I am curious about a switch, near the water heater switch, that is labeled "security." I have not found out what it does. Can anyone enlighten me?

Also, there is a screen that has come off of one of the windows. It does not seem to be readily replaceable. It looks like I'd need to unscrew the window facing to replace it. Any advice appreciated.

Welcome to I RV2.

The " Security " switch is probably for outside yard lights , round 8" diameter lights sometimes on both sides of the trailer , to light up all around the trailer.

Screen replacement , could depend on window brand.
Is there any etching on the glass that could identify the manufacturer of the window?

The security switch is for the road side security light. Just looked in my manual and didn't list the vender. Which of the windows are you referring to?
