Sunseeker MBS Switches?

My campground neighbor has a 2017 Sunseeker MBS. It has 3 unidentified switches by the disconnect switch on the left of the entry door. We’d be appreciative if someone could help us.

Thanks in advance.

I’m not in an MBS but the switches in my Forester might be similar or at least give you some things to try.
Awning lights, aisle light, porch light, and a second switch for the living room lights.

entry door switches

Assuming that it’s similar to my 2018 Forester MBS, the switch closest to the door is the “step stay out” switch, the second one is “driver’s side stabilizer up/down” and the third is the “passenger side stabilizer up/down.” In one position, the step switch causes the step to go out whenever the door opens and in whenever the door is closed (generally not preferred). In the other position, the step goes out when the door is first opened and stays out until the ignition switch is turned on. The OneContol can be used to lower/raise the stabilizers, but the switches do the same. These switches are often more convenient, and sometimes necessary to clear the “stabilizer down warning buzzer.” It’s a real pain to have the alarm go off while traveling down the road. It seems that the OneControl may use a marginally-positioned limit switch or amperage cutoff to cut power to the stabilizer motors before full “up” travel, while the switches by the door may use no cutoff whatsoever, since they continue to power the stabilizer motors after the OneControl stops and have a tendency to trip the breaker when held too long. Note that there is a manually-resettable circuit breaker for the stabilizer power which can be found behind the adjacent panel cover. I’ve replaced mine with a timed auto-resetting circuit breaker.
