Mystery switch—ideas?

Hello! New (to me) Holiday Rambler owner and I am in need of help. I searched the group archives as well as a lot of the photo files but cannot find the answer.

I have a couple of things I can’t figure out but I won’t ask unless im truly stumped.

This is a photo of my control panel. Everything seems to work (so far) except I have NO idea what this green switch is for. In the owner’s manual, it explains all of the switches but doesn’t show any switch where this green one is. The plastic is translucent and I thought it might light up when it was switched on (up?) but nothing lights up and I cannot tell what, if anything, it does.

Any ideas? Even some guesses as to what it might be could help me figure it out. Thanks in advance!

Do you know if you have a wet bay heater, a small 12 volt heater to keep the compartment warm in cold weather.

If you do this switch may turn in on BUT the light on the switch won't come on until it gets cold enough.



That's the only other switch I can think of but strange that it isn't labeled.

We don’t have a bay heater but we DO have tank heater pads to keep the black and gray tanks from freezing. The switch for that is in the bathroom…do you think we might have two?

Do you have a dome satellite antenna? A Winegard power switch looks very similar to that.

It doesn’t seem to do anything at all. Everything works with it in the on or off position, at least as far as I can tell.

We do have a battery disconnect switch (salesman switch) near the door to exit the RV.

Yes, the RV does have a dome satellite but we haven’t ever used it. If this is for the satellite, should this light up or give any indication that it’s on?

It should, unless the bulb inside the switch is burned out.

If it’s some sort of power switch, it may have a fuse that’s blown as well. I’ll check fuses on Monday and if there are no fuses out, I’ll replace the switch and see what happens.

If the bulb in the switch was burned out, would the switch still function but just not light up? Or would it not work at all?

The other issue is this MH is a 2007. I’m not sure the current dome satellite is even compatible with DishTV’s current configuration…which is fine. I just didn’t want to have a switch that I didn’t know what it was and have it potentially burn something up.

Thank you for all of the ideas.

It will still work, just not light up.

Probably added by a previous owner as every other switch on the panel is labeled.
