Rocker Switches by Door mystery (to me)

One of the rocker switches evidently applies power to the cabin, another is for the outside lights (but not for the step light evidently), another is for the step, but what is the fourth one for please?

And, does anyone have a source for this/these rocker switches please?

I cannot believe I forgot about looking at the legend for this and realizing I have worked on this when I first bought the MH. But the problem remains, anyone have a source for these rocker switches please?

Scare light? Galley light? Or maybe flux capacitor?

in my '94 34' there were 4 switches. one was wires with a heavy red wire that didn't seem to do anything and it was not labeled on the switch bezel. that trailer once had a 12v fridge and i wondered it it was for that option.

I have 1 rocker on the 'wall' near the door, this powers the step.
I have 3 rockers on the wood cabinet near the door, and this is how they work.
Top Rocker powers the overhead lights forward, (of the door).
2nd down powers the outside light over the door.
3rd down powers the blue flood light to the right of the door, (to the right of the person looking outside of the door).

We have a 1988 325 Classic Airstream Motorhome, so this may vary.

I'm sorry for the added work:
1 - step down/up
2. cabin lights
3. outside lights
4. Power Relay

But if anyone has a source for these switches...!

So I have a 2000 as well and I only have 3 switches...but that's because I don't have a power step well cover (though I thought they only installed those in the '01 and newer XCs)...anyways, by source if you mean a supplier of the actual switches, my guys at Toscano RV in Los Banos have them in stock. They've overnighted things to me many times if you're in a hurry. Unfortunately I don't live in South Carolina anymore (haven't lived full time since Hugo huffed, puffed, and blew our house down) so I can't recommend anyone local but I'll ask my service guy here if he knows anybody for you if you'd like.

Perfect LucasS, I've reached out to Toscano and will see if they can get me replacement switches. They are labeled, I'm just getting too old and feeble to see it right away.

Well looks like I'm in the same boat as you. Look what clever thing I did trying to figure out my stare problem.

If you find a source for switches let me know, mine still works but the hold down pegs snapped like all the rest of the plastic in this 10 yo RV. It won't stay mounted. But I did figure out what was wrong with my step, the wires for the switch are too short in this RV and one lead had pulled off.

As you can see from the photo my switch arrangement is not the same as everyone's I only have three. I also have the step lever, and a separate component for turning off all the power, and finally a switch for my awning. Sure wish I had the switch that turned off all the lights in the basement. That would be smart.

-Randy

I know there is probably many apps for the iPad that would have let me upload, but for now, I use my Mac mostly to post, so here is that photo of the switch panel that I have broken the step switch on.
