1995 Kountry Star - strange switch

So I was dumping the black tank today and there is a white switch next to the city/tank water valve that I always thought was for the water pump - except that today, I tried to read the very faded label that a PO had attached to find that it says something about 'motor fan' but it's totally faded.

Does anyone know what this switch is for as it doesn't appear to actually do anything.

Now, crawling forward to the rearmost compartment under the slide - the one where the water pump is installed. There is a HVAC aluminum duct (think flexible dryer duct) coming out of the floor and connected to an inline fan. It vents directly into the compartment. Any ideas?

We do have the separate washer and dryer installed so could it be an air input for the dryer maybe?

If anyone can help, much appreciated!

It's the fan control to force heat to the basement and water tanks when running the furnace.

And...the round duct is the heat duct that supplies warm are to that section of the basement.

Ahh, many thanks!

That's why I had no idea what it was - it's 97F here and so no need to use the furnace

Thanks again

The answers you got are right on. We have the same switch but we can read the label. Have fun....
