Welcome to IRV2. and congrats on your project. The older you get the less owners left (that are internet savvy at least) and harder it is to find documentation on specific. You'll probably have to do trial and error or trace the circuit to find the switches. Batteries someone here should know. Good luck

On our 82 Fleetwood PA one switch is for 12 volt lights and the other is for like the night lights to use when your coming home late @ night or need nite lights. This is what our 2 do.

Hi Marty! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the bunch!

Congrats on the new rig! You'll probably want to spend some time over in the 5th wheel area of the forum. Enjoy!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
