What does this switch do?

In the bedroom of our Outlaw 38RE. This is the door to the back half bath that leads to the patio. The switch thatís over the red candles in the picture. The 2 switches on the left of the door control the bedroom light and the shade above the Tv.

Iíve switched it on and off and nothing changes.

Any other Outlaw owners have this switch and know what it does?

I'm gonna guess something in the bath or a patio light. Is there a fan in the roof vent? outside scare light?

Thank you for the reply.

Nope - Thereís a switch In the bathroom that controls the bathroom fan.

There are a pair of lights above the patio that I havenít figured out yet. I never tried flicking the switch while Ms. WT stood out there and looked. Will do so today.

Have you checked to see if your garage door is still closed?

Hmmm... with my luck so far, it probably empties the black tank when switched on!

Either this, or it's used to summon the butler.

It activates the "Magic Fingers" on the bed...no more quarters required. In hotels it used to run for 15 minutes then shuts off. On motorhomes, it only runs for 3 minutes...two minutes too long!

I personally think all Mfgs should be spanked for NOT labeling all switches, but that may be

I am not familiar with that model / floorplan, but I do recall looking at a unit that had what I thought was an extra switch in main bath with shower. It turned out that the switch was an additional switch to turn on/off the water pump. i.e you are in shower and realize water is off; you don't have to get dressed to go outside to turn it on. Similar would apply is you needed to flush and oops no water

The FireFly System is great for that. Every water source inside has a switch next to it. Also, multiple locations for most used lights. Plus, you can snap one off the wall and take it outside...they are wireless.

I guess that Thor's Firefly system, and the Spider system used by Tiffin; all came out of the same place!

That Firefly imn Windsport/Hurricane was the one thing I missed the most about going with EssObee. I even put out the $ .99 cents to buy the phone apps to play with the unit I had tried to buy. The one we were looking at did not light up, but I didn't see that as issue. I do think that the warnings to turn extend / retract slides and generator would be annoying over time. I also got a little skimmish with concern about the impact should the main controller go out? The way Thor just threw those wires under bed I don't see how anybody could fix without spending a lot of time.

But it was otherwise awesome and everything clearly marked. It also had ability to turn off all lights with master switch which is great. Kudos to Thor because they do try to add lots of features. If they just slow down and put maybe 10% more effort in workmanship they may fare better?

Thor's FireFly can beat up Tiffin's Spider.

Found the answer!

It controls a set of LeD lights above the back patio. Great for after dark entertaining on the deck!

Thank you all for your help!
