Question

Just bought a 1985 gmc vandura triple eee class c motorhome. I am not sure if anyone is too familiar with this model but I have a couple of questions if someone may know the answers to.

On the dash there is a switch for the rv dual tank system ( main) and ( aux), beside that switch there is another switch that looks similar but just says on and off. Does anyone know what this switch is for?

Second question is in regards to the fridge, when I went to look at the rv the seller had the fridge on and it was working
But when I plug the electrical to the outlet of my house I don't hear the fridge at all and don't feel it cooling at all. The rv is not perfectly level as it is on my driveway which slants down, is this the reason why the fridge is not working? Or should it still turn on even though it's not level?

Any ideas or answers would be greatly appreciated as I am new to rv's and it's my first one.

Thanks in advance!

First the second switch could be a transfer switch for the fuel tanks. Second the first owner could have had the fridge running on propane

Suggestion: Turn it on see what works, Turn it off see what works If there is a difference you will know.

NOTE: try this when NOT connected to shore power and with engine both running and not running.

Thanks for the advice guys! I figured the switch out, it's to turn the ac on on front controls.
