recently bought a 2016 palazzo and just found another switch with no label. Could someone please tell me what the switch is for located on the side of the bed with a red light?

Could you post a picture of it that gives us an idea of exactly where it sits on the bedframe?

only used in very low and long below freezing temps when the engine has not been cranked in a long while - only works on 120v shore or generator power, though.
If you 'accidentally' brush by the switch and turn it on, which I've done many times, I simply trip the breaker in the panel and don't worry about it. I've used our block heater MAYBE once in 100,000 miles over 6 years and in a LOT of cold weather. Then engine cranks just fine on it's own.
