Question switch in glove box

Does anyone know what the switch in the glove box of a 96 Georgie Boy does or was intended to do?
The dealer has no idea and it appears to be from the factory.
Most people give me a blank stare and one guy said it opens the trunk (that would be interesting on a class A)
Tried following the wires but they disappeared in the dash in a mess of wires, changing color.

Could be a "master switch " for the storage bay lights!
Just turn it off until you find something that doesn't work

Skip you took the words right out of my mouth.

Two suspects.. If it is a front engine model check for a "Service light" under the hood

Check compartment lights in your storage areas

But I note those are "Suspects" might be somethign else entierly.
Home is where I park it!

Its a pusher so no service light, but you might be right about the compartment lights, I noticed the last one I tried did not go on. Laid up a few days but will check that out when I get back home and let you know. Thanks

I had a switch in my Class A that was mystery. It seemed to do nothing.
Ironically, I had 3 exterior lights and 2 compartment lights that would not illuminate

I later found that the switch controlled the exterior lights...but that ALL the bulbs in ALL the lights were burned out.

Of course in 1996 it was a popular fad of installing after market car alarms...anyone remember the "Viper" with is annoying alarm pattern? It had an over-ride (Valet) switch, often mounted in the glovebox. Maybe you have a car alarm in the rig?

Ah, the treasure hunt that is ownership of a Motorhome...just takes patience to figure these things out.
