Mystery switch

Small silver on/off switch behind the sofa. 1987 sovereign. There is a bigger switch in the middle that appears to kill some of the power. But the silver one does nothing we can find...

Thanks

There was a switch in that general area of some '70's 'Streams that controlled the electric motor for the TV antenna. Maybe something like that?

Are you by any chance a fan of Star Trek? HoobieDoobie played an important part in one of the movies.

If so, there's the answer to your question; it's the GNDN switch. On the sets of various Star Trek incarnations, particularly the sickbay sets, there was usually something labeled GNDN. Which stands for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing."

The small switch may turn off the converter, especially if it is located under the sofa. It will likely hum if the original, so listen for it, then flip the switch. If no hum, mystery solved.

The big switch is likely the disconnect switch for the entire trailer, for long term storage.
