I have a 120V rocker switch and a red "lamp" in the same switch plate on the Refer side wall next to my slide switch. What does this do?

Just a guess, since I am not familiar with your model MH.

1. Electric water heater switch.

2. Electric engine heater.

I'm sure someone else will answer with the right answer shortly.

I was thinking it was for the holding tank heaters, which I am supposed to have but can't verify...yet.

I guess it only works when plugged in to SP and even then I would have to have the tanks (full)? I would guess that the WH would need water too.

The WH electric element will burn up if turned on without water in the tank.

quikduk, it should be the electric water heater switch. The tanks should be heated from the furnace ducted into the area. Start with cold water inteh water heater; turn on the switch an wait about 30 minutes then check hot side of faucet. Be sure the switch on the lower left corner on the outside vent of water heater is turned on and it is full of water. Let us know what you find.

Are you sure it is 120V? If so it could be electric hot water or even engine block heater (unlikely). If not 120V it could be the propane water heater.

It only works when plugged in to SP. I'll check in the next day or so and see if it matters whether or not it is a 15/20A, 30A or 50A circuit.

I am wondering if it is for the W/D since this coach has been "prepped" for a W?D but never had one installed when it was built.

quikduk, we had a '98 Discovery with a similar switch. The Discovery was a 30 amp coach and this switch allowed use of washer/dryer OR microwave depending on position as the 30 amp could not handle both,Ken,'04 DSDP...

We had a 2005 Gulfstream Sun Voyager and on that unit which was on the cabinet by the sink it was for the electrical side of the hot water tank. Hopefully that helps
