Unknown Red Rocker switch?

Hi folks, on my 96 Dynasty, next to the radio on the right side, is a red rocker switch! I have never found what it is for. I told the C0 Pilot its her seat ejector button! Bad Mistake! Thats when the fight started!

It maybe the black tank eject button....used when people tailgate.

Now seriously...any writing or a label on it? How about a photo.

Do you have a TV/Radio switch to change the entertainment system speakers back and forth? What happens when you switch it? If you do switch it do it with the radio on.

Do you have a security system which could have been used to disable alarm as needed? How about a daylight running light switch?

I have a red rocker switch on the control shelf near engine brake, tranny controls, etc. It turns on heat for the mirrors.

So have you got up the courage to flip the switch and see what happens? Maybe stand outside and use a broom stick then run.

It could be your "Salesman Switch" which activates a relay that turns off all 12 Volt DC to the inside of your coach.

Or it could be a switch that activates your service bay heater which is controlled with a Snap Disc set to a specific temperature that turns the heater on when it gets cold.

Only my opinion.

Thanks to all you great guys that made comments on this thread! Still havent found the use of that light red switch! It looks original and is a couple inches straight to the right of the radio! Wish at times it did empty the black tank! All salesmens switches I ever knew about were to the left just as you open the door! Allegro5
