HMMMM a real mystery.

However looking back at your pictures the second one that you say is for the outside light - does NOT look standard - and possibly could have been installed after - because possibly the mystery switch no longer worked????

Or another possibility - that the mystery switch could turn the power on and off to the outside recepticle???

It is for people like me who would sneak over to your camper and run an extension cord for a second fridge for all my beer.....

Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.

It will, however, short out the heater if flipped.
If it were a 3 way switch, it still shouldn't short out the heater circuit.

Hummm. When I venture out again, I'm going to take a peek at the owner's manual. It gives a schematic along with approximate locations of various switches. Could be that we do indeed have an extra, non-original switch (in which case I'll probably leave good enough alone!).

So glad to know we're not alone! We are also puzzled by a similar switch in our Tradewind. It seems to have two AC wires leading to it, but it's dead. My husband checked all the other wire/circuits and it was the only one that didn't show a current.

Is it warming up in Angel Fire? We were there for Memorial Day last year. It was beautiful!
