Have you been able to trace any of the wires?? Doing that as i can see anything on the panel other than the switches. Did he or whoever have fog lights and driving lights?? Or some way maybe to air-up the airbags maybe?? Lost after that! Good luck, Dan

To the right of the 3 toggle switches is a rca type connection.

Whatever they control was an after market install.. If you bought this used, they may well control NOTHING at all.

Best guess, docking lights, and/or spot lights. but the key word is GUESS!

Well the wires go into a loom up under the dash an through the firewall. From there I couldn't locate them. There are no jacks on this motor home and doesn't appear to have had any ever mounted.
Another Photo of it.

Did not come from Fleetwood! I would bet it is audio for the radio. Try plugging in a (cheap) set of earphones. It probably cuts out main speakers and controls earphones. I installed almost identical system in my coach because the boss don't like country.

There is a separate switch for the spot light as this photo shows. I've not had time yet to trace the wires but so far nothing inside or outside is controlled by these switches. Its possible what ever it was has been removed.

Agreed on the "removed" if you happen to be near me I can assist in wire tracking. However I'm not sure just where I"m going to be for a while yet.. Next stop is Lily KY (moose lodge) for a day or two, then likely Ashville, NC, then I'm not sure, need to be in Darian GA on the 21st but ... will likely be away from "home" (the motor home) for that event (A wedding)

Auxillary power switches: CB, Lights, Radio, etc. Self installed or 3rd party inistalled by the previous owner. The equipment they provided power to may no longer be in the coach.

It has a 40 channel cobra CB. Also a scanner which are wired directly to the chassis fuse box so that eliminates 2. Driving lights can be eliminated since I can find no holes in either the bumper or supporting frame rails. How ever todays search reveals possible rear lighting and the possibility of a rear view camera at one time. Wiring goes aft and ends just short of the carrier bearing. Its cut clean there. I do not see inside where a monitor for a rear view camera would have been mounted unless it was attached to the small cabinet above and forward in the cab area. However this has been pretty much destroyed by rot and has fallen apart. Its currently something that is being rebuilt and a full photo spread is forthcoming in the near future.
