My hot water heater & water pump both located in the control panel will turn on a little red light when turned on the hot water heater red light will go out when the pilot lights & a green light will come on.
I don't have any lights in the basement. see attachment for toggle location

I guess I'll take the bed apart and see where the wires go. What in the world could it be.

Jim, I guess that is what you will need to do, start chasing the wires. That switch looks just like the one I have for the basement lights, How about a exterior light for the steps that may be burnt out. My thoughts on a switch like that, that lights up when turned on, is it works something you can't see unless you are in that compartment or using that appliance. Good luck

It's...... a "Hott Rod", after market heating element. inserted into the hot water tank to goose the water temperature using 120v power instead of propane. and I think that the toggle switch glows until it reaches a certain degree and then turns off.
I am certainly relieved and I would like to formally apologize for interrupting your otherwise peaceful life in the pursuit of this trivial point of interest. It is certainly over and above the call of duty for you to respond at all. I appreciate the help and the clues.

No apology nessacary, but certianly accepted. Glad to see you found the function of the switch. It would drive me crazy until I found it if it were in my rv.

Have a great day!
