87 Winn Chieftain "Power Panel" switch?

Hello,
I have a 1987 Winnebago Chieftain (27') and on the hood above the stove there are a switches & lights. I understand the water level, water heater, pump, etc. They are mostly self explanatory.

What I can't figure out is the first one on the left, "Power Panel".

Nothing I can see happens when I turn it off, the owners manual does not cover the hood switches at all.
Does anyone know?
Thanks!

It just "powers up" the panel.
The rocker switches on mine are ON if the switch is depressed (IN) toword the top of the panel.
Yes it would have been nice if they had used a simple LED ti denote when the panel switch was in the on position.

Mine is "on" too, but do you have any idea what it does?
I figured it out, it allows the 2 HT lights, water level & propane level lights to work, or not.
I wonder why I'd need that?

Thanks for getting back on this!

Well, If you left the lights on while just sitting there not plugged in, you would drain your battery....
