Most of us could guess, but if you tell us the year/make/model of RV you have it'd be a lot easier.

Better yet, please create a signature (User CP tab > Edit Signature) so that info will be shown with all your posts.

First one to guess:
Top row, L to R: Headlights, Parking lights, Overhead light, Generator start.
Bottom row: Lights for L & R side (possibly docking lights?), last symbol resembles a rear window defroster but I'm guessing you don't have that.



You posted a question about a 1991 Pinnacle in another thread. Is this the same RV?

I agree with daveandcarol about the function of the switches, except the last one. I think the last one is for heating the outside mirrors.


BTW, can you clarify your statement about the "coach lights?" Do you mean the headlights on the coach or the interior lighting, in general?

You will get real advice when you ask real, specific, questions. There are several on this forum who are/were electricians or otherwise "know their stuff" regarding electrical issues, both AC and DC.


Start by letting us know exactly what electrical issues you are having. Be as specific and detailed as possible, including if they are they 12v issues or 110 AC issues or both. Tell us if they are they issues with the coach or the chassis and which functions/circuits, exactly.


I would suggest you begin another thread that lays out your issues. This one, regarding the switches, is effectively answered and all attention will be focused on your overall electrical problems.

Yes, that helps, but keep in mind we only know what you tell us so if this sounds nit-picky, it's only because there are many possible interpretations of information.

If I understand this last post correctly, all your problems are with the 12v system. Still, it's not clear about the issues with the 12v system.

"All 12volt issues no 110ac issues when i hook up to shore power i have everything!"

Should that be three separate sentences? If so, it makes things very clear, but the way it stands it confuses.

"All 12volt issues. No 110ac issues. When I hook up to shore power I have everything."

If this^^ is what you mean, then I will ask the following questions:

1. Is the 12v problem only with the system for the coach or also with the chassis (I ask because you initially asked about the light switches, many of which are typically chassis wired?)


2. Can you confirm that you have 12v when hooked to shore power?


Just to get things started, and based on an understanding that the problem is with the coach 12v system but that you have power to it when hooked to shore power, it could be a battery problem. How old are your batteries and have you tested them for charge or load tested them?

On shore power, the converter is powering the system and charging the batteries. If the batteries are bad, the 12v will be immediately lost when you disconnect the converter. Does this sound like your issue?
