Well, I got my head in inside the cupboard, and looked at the back of the switch.
Its 110V wires, so my gut feeling is that its as was suggested, the AC power switch for a 110V water heating element.
Either way, if I put a 110V element in, I will replace the switch with one with a warning lamp!

I just solved another Mystery switch puzzle!
This one:
Red switch on the wall, next to Refridgerator....


This one was a GEM....
I was trying to figure out what it was... had no idea... must have left it on, and next time I went over to work on it, the House batteries were dead...

I pulled the Fridge vent open and stuck my head in to see if I could see the back of the switch... traced the wires back down to this little fan!
So a cooling fan for condensor!

Hmmm
I was just told this past week that these fridges are designed to not need a vent fan.

some one had placed a small fan in mine also. it was controlled by a temp sensor switch.
this A.S. Tech suggested these are the type of accessory's sold by vendors, sometimes at rally's, to Help ? maybe something that is not needed ???

My B190 has one as well. In general they shouldn't need one. In the early B190s like mine there is no roof vent for the fridge, just two side vents, so the natural air flow isn't quite as smooth. In that situation the fan seems like a good idea.

Mine was hooked to a temperature sensor that only let the fan turn on when it was insanely hot. I bypassed it and run the fan on those really hot days when the air doesn't seem to be moving. Both the fridge and fan seem to do fine.

As for some of the other switches shown - my B190 has a switch that doesn't appear to do anything most of the time, but it does in fact turn off the lights on the bunk - the idea is that if you forget to turn them off, you don't have to climb up again to turn them off. (Unfortunately it also kills the lights above the couch...I guess in case you make the opposite mistake...) I suspect some of the switches in this thread may be something like that.

Drivers side behind the Sofa.
Clearly, its for the TV, but what is the switch for, the TV signal Amp?
Also, what is the multi-pin plug for top left side and the single pin bottom right side?


Better Pic.

On mine...

Near sofa is the switch to lower sofa into a bed.
My TV is on the other side, away from sofa, and the amp is on same switch plate as the coax.
