Toggle switch under steering console?

Hi all, I own a 1997 Dutchmen class-C MH. The previous owner passed away so I have been left with figuring out some things. I have everything figured out I think, except for a little toggle switch underneath the steering wheel? Any idea what these are usually for?

I have ruled out "power boost" for jumps and "ejector seat".

Hmmm...thanks muchly!

If it looks like an after market add on switch, could be a tickle switch to flash the running lights or if it has an alarm, could be a valet switch to turn the alarm off (only works when the key is on)

it could switch the 12 volt source for the radio between the chassis and house batteries.

Does your coach have an Alpine radio/cd/dvd/nav sytem in place of the original radio? Also, is there a small red push button located nearby? If one or more of these are there and you have an Alpine, they are used to bypass the emergency brake/foot brake requirement lock-out feature so that the DVD and a couple of other tuning features can be used while the vehicle is moving. Just a thought.... PLEASE let us know what you find out....thanks!

Could it be a switch to toggle between the air horn and regular horn?
