JaG..if the switch is by the TV, perhaps it's a TV antenna booster switch? Don't know if your model has one of those...

Oh, well......

WE appreciate that we do not have a flux capacitor. But, its nice to know that the the black switch in the latrine is the Water Heater. Always wondered why my showers got progressively more invigorating.......

Maybe....if you cross wired the water heater with the flux thinge, you could cool it enough to get an extra bit of speed........never mind.

Thanks for the pictures.

Really would get things up to speed.

Mystery brown switch

My 89 345 has a brown switch located in the area in question. It has momentary positions to left & right while it's normal position is in the center. My switch turns the generator on/off.

We also have a switch that resembles that one. It is located over the sink and is used to start and stop the generator. There is another on the dash, and one more on the genset itself.

Pretty much the same here, one on the dash, one on the control panel above the fridge and one in the generator compartment.

Mystery Swith not a mystery - it's a puzzle

Hi, y'all -
A mystery can have no solution; a puzzle does have one which is just not known at the moment.
You're missing out on step #1 - diagnosis. Press the "mystery" swith to the left position and let go - does it go back to center by itself? If so, it is the generator start/stop - one of several located in what A/S thought would be convenient places from which you might want to start or stop 120v power.
Jamie

Jag, when you have the photo available on your computer just click on the manage attachments button down below the submit reply button. A dialog box will open allowing you to browse and select your photos. Remember to upload them before exiting this dialog box.

Size matters and there is a max size so don't shoot at high res. and expect to be able to load a 13mb image.....

the top pic is the parts of the switch that popped out one day as I discovered them.
the second pic is the rest of the rocker type switch that is still mounted above and to the right of the t.v.

JaG,

That doesn't look like any switch in our 310. Hopefully the 345 owners can shed some light.

Nothing like it in our 1989 345.
That very well could be a FC
