Jayco Seismic Wave question

I'm new to this forum, also new to Jayco. So a couple weeks ago we traded in our Heartland. We picked up a brand new but left over 2017 jayco seismic wave 400w. In the main switch panel there is an exterior light switch, and an exterior light 2 switch. Exterior light 2 does not turn anything on. I open the panel and tested the switch it works and is sending power somewhere. Can anyone tell me which lights this switch should turn on? It would give me a starting point for electrical testing.

If memory serves, doesn't that turn the light under the steps on/off?

Pro Tip: Goto Home Depot and get a Fox & Hound wire tracer. Put the transmitter on the load side of switch (and ground), and use the detector to follow wiring path through the walls. Get extra batteries. They don't last long.

The step lights come on with the awning lights on the other exterior light switch.
I'll try the tracer, sounds like a good idea. Didn't know that would work with a 12v system. I've heard of it for AC power.

Mine is at least a decade old. Used to be yellow and fancy, now is shaded between dark gray and black with a yellow interior.

And its still available! $39.97 local in N Texas

I wonder if new model is still hell on batteries?

Bought the tracer yesterday. Doesn't seem too bad on batteries. I still lose the signal in the garage wall before I find the end of the wire. But it's near the propane quick connects in the back.
I think it's for the outdoor kitchen, which I don't have. I also found a dead ended hot and ground set in this area that is not on a switch. I also believe it's outdoor kitchen related, but who knows?
Thanks for the suggestions, it did help.
