Mysterious Remote?!?! (Help?)

Hello!
My friend picked up his brand new 2018 Globetrotter today - VERY very exciting! We’ve been busy figuring everything out today. Within the kitchen cabinet was 4 remotes — 3 were Samsung, and the 4th one is a huge mystery. It has zero brand markings on it.
The sales rep and service rep both pleaded ignorance, as this was their first Globetrotter delivery. We’ve tried all day to figure this out, with no luck.
So.... +10 points to anyone who can solve the mystery of the unknown remote. Can anyone tell us what this remove does or should do? To what device does this remote connect?

THANK YOU in advance for your help!

Welcome to the forums.
We've had several Globetrotters come and go, and none of them had that remote. Have your friend call Airstream directly tomorrow, and ask them what it is. It may have ended up in the goody box by accident, and there may be an employee wondering what happened to the remote for his veeblefetzer.

It looks like a remote for a radio.

My first guess was awning also, but I'd expect a "In/Out".
It has a power button as if it turns on another device. Then four selections.
My curious self would turn everything on and push the buttons and see if something moves or flashes.

Another guess - possibly for the “ambient lighting” - 4 intensity levels?

Whatever it is, it is basic and they spared no expense on the $1 generic remote - reason behind my first guess of HDMI switch. There should be something in the stack of device manuals that came with the trailer.

Good luck!

I second the vote for the HDMI switch. That would allow switching HDMI sources since most of the TV only have one or two HDMI cables coming in.
